While my parents were in-town in July I decided to do a crab boil just for fun. It was a big hit and a blast to do. In-fact since then we have already done it again with some friends of ours.
All you do is take about 3 lbs of snow crab clusters, 6 ears of corn, some kielbasa sausage, 5 lbs of red potatoes and boil them up in a big pot of water seasoned generously with Old Bay seasoning and you have a pot of yummy goodness.
Here is an actual recipe if you need more directions.
Then I just laid out some butcher paper down the table and pored out the already drained pot right in the middle of the table and let everyone just go at it.
I found all my plastic plates and cloth napkins/bibs at the dollar store, and got the crab crackers and forks from a local kitchen supply place.
My grandmother looks so cute.
This is an easy and fun summer dinner to enjoy with friends and family.
