Crabcakes + Peppermint

March 9, 2012

There’s always a party going on here! This afternoon/evening, Gram hosted about 40 of her friends to welcome us to Towson.



The table was set with appetizers and the bar was fully stocked


Club Soda + cherries for me



I had tastes of everything, but didn’t have too much since we were headed to dinner afterwards


Pop was there in spirit


Upon my request for crabcakes, we headed to the Peppermill for dinner


Rolls got us thinking about what to order


And I had more club soda, but the Manhattans sitting next to me kept my nose happy with wafts of wonderful bourbon.


I didn’t need to crack open the menu – I ordered what I always get!

Starter salad, which comes with the entrée


And two broiled crabcakes!


Plus a side of applesauce as the “vegetable”


The Peppermint Peppermill is famous for its desserts, all made in house. Mom, Larbs and I shared a bread pudding and a banana crème pie. I couldn’t fit too much – these were huuuuge!


This afternoon I put my feet up in this king size bed and instantly fell asleep. I absolutely cannot wait to climb back in!!

Those crabcakes look AMAZING! I love it when there’s real chunks of delicious crab instead of yucky filler and other stuff!


3 Caroline @ After Dinner Dance March 9, 2012 at 9:57 pm

4 Kaila @healthyhelperblog! March 9, 2012 at 9:59 pm

That dessert looks amazing!! I’m drooling…I think I’m going to top a rice cake with peanut butter and chocolate chips and pretend it looks that good! 😉

Love applesauce – especially when it counts as a vegetable! Your dinner looks delicious, but what caught my eye most (aside from your beautiful grandmother!) was the lox, cream cheese and capers spread, YUM! Where is this restaurant?


9 Helen March 9, 2012 at 10:26 pm

Is that blue cheese on your salad? Do you know if it was pasteurized!?


10 KathEats March 9, 2012 at 10:27 pm

Yes, I asked


11 Angel7 March 9, 2012 at 10:40 pm

A club soda plus cherries sounds really good!


12 kristen @ verbs and vignettes March 9, 2012 at 10:43 pm

looks like a great party! I’ll probably be in the same boat – craving a nice comfy bed – after our festivities tomorrow. my big brother is getting married! hopefully there will be great food and laughs there, too.


13 Betty March 9, 2012 at 11:03 pm

I love how you love your grandma and take the time to go there – what a great family you are – and of course your grandfather was there with you – not a doubt in my mind – enjoy your time together


14 Stephanie @ Legally Blinde March 9, 2012 at 11:07 pm

Wow, 40 people! That’s definitely a crowd! Looks like a very fun night :)


15 Cara March 9, 2012 at 11:09 pm

Ahh have fun down there! I’m going to be down in Baltimore tomorrow eating crabcakes…at my wedding tasting, ahh! (Both my fiance and I went to school in Bmore, so we’re getting married down there…although I just realized that Bmore must be UP from you!)


16 Kerry @ Totes My Oats March 9, 2012 at 11:22 pm

Good food and family – nothing beats it! Ahh a hotel king size bed sounds amazing right about now!!


17 Lexi @ Cura Personalis Foodie March 10, 2012 at 12:01 am

Bleu cheese and crabcakes are basically married in mind, with divorce not listed as a viable option :)


18 KhushbOo March 10, 2012 at 12:10 am

Never would have thought to pair applesauce and crab cakes but Ill take it!


19 jojo March 10, 2012 at 12:44 am

oh my gosh, the pie and ice cream is HUGE!!
It’s hard not to be able to drink at parties like this, but it all pays off in the end! :) :)


20 Becca March 10, 2012 at 1:03 pm

I agree, I’ve never seen such a generous serving of ice cream on a dessert before!


21 Averie @ Averie Cooks March 10, 2012 at 1:06 am

the bread pudding, the pie, the imitation-looking Shirley Temple, crabcakes…yes, great food post!

Glad you had a nice day with your family, Kath :)


22 David March 10, 2012 at 1:27 am

Dear Kath,

23 KathEats March 10, 2012 at 8:58 am

25 Cherleen @ My Personal Finance Journey March 10, 2012 at 6:57 am

Simply looking at the pictures make me hungry. Those crab cakes must be really delicious. Your post is mouth-watering!


26 Katie March 10, 2012 at 8:13 am

Going to The Peppermill tonight. So good! And you got exactly what I always get except for the applesauce. :)


27 KathEats March 10, 2012 at 8:58 am

Oh fun!! With family? Would have been fun to be there together!


28 Katie March 10, 2012 at 9:10 am

Yes! We’ve been going there my whole life. :)
I always get the salad, Crabcake, and baked potato. So good!

Enjoy your time in Towson.

Fun!! Us too :)


30 Erika - The Teenage Taste March 10, 2012 at 9:15 am

Peppermill sounds like a lovely place to dine. Those crab cakes look good but, in my opinion, the desserts were the real show-stopper. Bread pudding a la mode – mmmmmm! :-)


31 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count March 10, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Love the little statue of your Grandpop!


32 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio March 10, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Wow, looks at those desserts!! Those crabcakes looks awesome too!


33 Sonya March 10, 2012 at 7:13 pm
