I got home last night from a whirlwind trip through Philadelphia and Baltimore to see all of the fabulous friends I made during the seven years I lived in Baltimore.
Coming home yesterday, I realized that from now on I need to travel with an armed bodyguard when I'm back there.
See, whenever I visit Baltimore, I always fly home with a box like this. And, as you might imagine, I attract a LOT of attention.
It's probably a good thing that most people don't realize that I'm not carrying lobster. Because if they knew that I was carrying one dozen of these bad boys, I would surely get mugged!
What are they? They are jumbo lump crab cakes from Faidley's at Lexington Market in Baltimore. And you seriously haven't lived until you've had one! I brought six for my parents for their 45th anniversary present, and six for me and the husband (i.e., six for the husband...).
These tastey delights are SO good that when I called the husband yesterday to tell him I was at the airport, his first words were something like, "You got the crabcakes, right????" Hmmm. Glad to know that he missed me...
