Our friends, Tom and Micki, invited us for a snow-crab party at a beach house they "borrowed" for the weekend.  We were joined by their sons, Ian and Hunter and Shelley and Frank and their two boys.  It was a fun time.  Frank is a natural comedian and loves to clown.
 He had fun showing us how high he could kick.

The guys cooked the snow crabs with Old Bay seasoning.  Snow crabs are already fully cooked when you buy them frozen.  They just need to be thawed and heated through, making them an easy party food.  Just be sure, if you cook them, not to overcook them, which is what so many people do.  Remember they are already cooked.  If you overcook them, they will turn mushy, and you will not enjoy them.  It only takes about 10 minutes of steaming to heat them through.  See my post on steaming crabs for directions.

Here are the boys at their table, enjoying crabs.

And here are the adults at their table.
After we filled ourselves up with crab, we ate some great cannoli and my sour cream peach pecan pie.

Thanks, Micki and Tom, for a great evening!
