End of Season Seafood Fest!

I have been craving some Florida Stone Crabs for a long time...finally decided to order some to be flown in and thought why not have a special seafood dinner for some of our departing is always a sad time as I watch our Snowbird crowd depart the park.

All of our regulars are special, but there are a few who really contribute to the success of the park and I wanted to show a little extra appreciation.

We started off with some cold appetizers for Social Hour - cold stone crab with mustard sauce or warm butter, fresh shrimp cocktail with cocktail sauce, I am pretty sure it was all a huge hit - Lori Prestwood camped out in front of the stone crabs and enjoyed a feast, everyone else had to get permission to take one or two...we have now determined Lori loves crab! I wish I would have taken a picture of Lori in front of the crab dish...

Ready to serve!

After all the stone crabs were consumed, we turned to the kitchen, I saute'd some shrimp and scallops in a butter garlic sauce and Stephen and Jessica Dotson prepared some fresh asparagus and angel hair pasta, Lori had some left over fresh garlic bread in the kitchen and I had made some Hush Puppies, plates were prepared and we all enjoyed a delicious meal.

No Pictures I was too busy eating!!

Several people brought some dessert and everyone left full!!

Still a few of us left through April so the fun continues!

For those who missed this wonderful seafood fest, it was determined last night that next year one of our regular Saturday Night Dinners will be a Stone Crab festival!
Make plans to be here!

Blog Update - Spring Fling Dinner - Season Winds Down

We just enjoyed our Spring Fling Dinner which is our last dinner with Music supplied by our favorite DJ. Our kitchen crew put together a wonderful baked ham dinner, with baked beans, macaroni salad and fresh bread and dessert. 

This next week or so many of our Snowbird friends will be departing and heading for new adventures or back home to family we wish them all the best!

Smaller crowd on the dance floor!

I got all excited when my workampers showed up in these T-shirts - turns out it had nothing to do with me, but rather a young relative of theirs who is autistic, but I am happy to be a part of that team as well.

As the season winds down, we can all be thankful we had a wonderful season, plenty of fun times. We also want to remember Ray and Betty Haag and wish Ray the best and know we will miss Betty's smile and participation.

Those of us who will be around for a little longer will still have some fun activities and wish our friends safe travels and a pleasant summer and can't wait until fall when we all return.

Stay Tuned!
