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!

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?

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

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

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!)

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

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

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! :) :)

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

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! :-)
