Forgive me for not going into details about turkey, stuffing and the various versions of sweet potatoes. I have what you might call turkey fatigue. In fact, since our younger son cooks for a living, we still have one more Thanksgiving dinner to go this week. Post holiday meals always seem a bit less stressful. So what if the turkey is a little dry– we already had two full turkey dinners and too many leftover sandwiches to count. So, now that I just finished a big steak, spinach salad and grilled vegetables, I am ready to reflect back on a few wonderful events recently- and best of all, none involved even the mention of Pilgrims and cranberry sauce.
Stone Crab Fest 2008 at the Colony Beach and Tennis Resort was a total success, with a beautiful evening sky showing the space shuttle launch on Friday evening while an assortment of guest chefs served up stone crab fritters, sliders and what the entire Sarasota Magazine team deemed the best darn raspberry squares we have ever had!
