    The crab cakes were sooooo delicious! I have been craving seafood lately so it hit the spot. I will post a photo tomorrow. I actually bought these at Food Lion today. They were in the meat dept and the brand name is Dockside. I have never bought pre-made crab cakes but they were a good deal and were surprisingly good (once I added ample Old Bay seasoning). They are regularly $7.99 and were on sale $4.99 for 4 medium sized cakes. The slaw on top was perfect!

    So happy to see that many of you can make it to the picnic! Hopefully many more will rsvp as well. It was lots of fun last year!

    Faye (and everyone) I think May 3rd is going to be a perfect date!! No graduations, Mothers Day is still a few weeks away, and its right before it really gets hot out (although with this crazy winter we've had i'm afraid of what this summer may hold......) Thanks again for letting me do this Faye!!

    I will call the place tomorrow and get the ball rolling on this. May will be here before you know it......can you believe February is just about over????

    Yay for the picnic! We're in! We're really looking forward to it. RFB, glad you will be there. :)

    Dinner tonight will be leftover baked ziti, Caesar salad, and (maybe garlic) bread.

    PR- thank you! Wow, a cookbook... that would be so much fun!

    Faye- lol on the autograph! And thank you... appreciate you so much!

    Barbiedoll- thanks! I was in shock when I saw it come up on my facebook feed from Paula's page this afternoon :-)

    I'm not sure if my first comment went through so I'm typing it again. Please forgive me if it shows up twice. RFB I have a Paula Deen cookware set in Red. It's great.

    Regarding the blog picnic, could we possibly have it on Sat May 3 as Faye suggested? I live over an hour away and it's hard to come on a Sunday.

  • barbiedoll1967 Feb 24, 2014

    CONGRATULATIONS RFB!!! I know you must be sooooo excited.
