Ok I lied. This post is not about ice cream. It’s about CRAB!
Last night we went to a crab boil at Back Forty. Oh man. I had never been to a crab boil before and it was so much fun. And a lot of work. You gotta rip these babies apart and hit them with mallets to get to the crabby goodness.
And in the process you’re getting crab everywhere! The woman next to me even set up a napkin wall between us cause I kept getting her. That’s what you get, lady, it’s a crab boil! It’s messy!
Here’s a picture of Kelly because as you can see, we’ve been following each other around everywhere. Or at least to every restaurant in the five boroughs.
And here’s me with a crab I’m about to tear to shreds.
We also had cornbread, and the best potatoes and corn EVER. So delicious.
Did I mention that eating crab like this is a lot of work? Most of the time you’re breaking it apart and using the mallet just to get an iiiiity biiiiity piece of crab, but sometimes you break the crab just right and you get a nice hunk and you’re like, “YES” and then it’s awesome. Also it’s extremely messy. I wanted someone to get a picture of my dirty hands but I didn’t want anyone’s dirty hands on my camera so no dice!
We also had pieces of blueberry cobbler which was pretty delicious as well. Basically, crab boils are legit. So get your newspapers and mallets ready and get going!
