I finally tried Maryland crabs today! And I dunno how I feel about it…
After a day of sightseeing around Washington D.C. with my family (visiting from CA) we went to Phillips…it is a buffet and it’s dangerous.
They are not messing around at this place! The buffet was extensive with a salad bar, pasta bar, meat carving station, random fried foods, desserts and huge steaming pots of crabs, crab legs, clams and other stuff I don’t know about.
I always begin a buffet with a plate of salad (or veggies) so I make sure to get in some vegetables before I get full on random crap.
My crabs, sweet potatoes, paella and other random things. I also had corn bread I shared with Matt. My verdict: cracking and eating crabs is kinda disturbing and a lot of work. This is my first time eating whole crabs so I didn’t really know what I was doing. So, maybe with a lesson I would enjoy them more? I dunno, I wasn’t all about it.
They had funnel cake at the dessert bar. What is this the county fair? I was a little too happy about it.
But, the funnel cake was just okay. I took a couple of bites of everything, because I couldn’t just pick one thing.
Then, I got a small scoop of ice cream and all was right in the world. Actually, Buffets are the devil. Everytime I walk (or am rolled) away super stuffed. Boo.
Before dinner we went to the Ford Theater and the Archives.
After dinner and the massive buffet we were all in need of a walk. We went to the Vietnam Memorial. I’ve been here before, but it’s pretty amazing everytime.
I think the pictures speak for themselves…
I should be exhausted, but I’m not? I wonder why…maybe it was the huge cups of iced tea from dinner (caffeine?).
Are you honoring your hunger?
Me: I think I “honored my hunger” a little too much today!
Any yes, I wanted to make a joke that “I got crabs”. But, I didn’t feel like making any sexually related jokes since the dress I’m wearing today makes me look like I have the chest of an 8 year old boy. Ouch. This are my boobs when I’m 10 pounds overweight…how sad are they at my healthy weight?
