I ordered soft shell crab for the first time tonight and was not disappointed! It was an experience getting over the visual, but was so delicious.
We had dinner at the Oregon Grill, a really cool restaurant out in the beautiful Maryland countryside. With the grandparents
To start, I had a cracker with a little bit of olive tampenade and a crab spread -
And toasted with one of my favorite wines – the Ferrari Carano Fume Blanc
For dinner I ordered a Strawberry-Spinach Salad with pecans and sharp cheddar. I doused it in balsamic vinegar. Fresh and tasty!
And had the soft shell crab, which was served with a size of shredded zucchini and a herb-lemon-butter sauce that I ordered on the side (good decision!)
Along with a side of sweet potato-wrapped asparagus! SO good. I will be replicating this at home. And I loved that it wasn’t covered in oil.

Check out my grandmother’s monster prime rib!! I had a bite. Talk about a huge portion!
I wasn’t going to have dessert so I ordered a decaf tea…
But of course I happily enjoyed bites from my mom’s Yeast Cake with Raspberries and Lemon Curd and my grandmother’s Raspberry Sorbet -
I loved how fresh my food tasted – not drenched in oil. And I ate a fair share of veggies! It was a great dinner out.
Off to read in bed. Tomorrow we’re hosting a 90th birthday party for my grandfather at his church so it’s up early to get things ready.
