September 29th is the birthday of my love, Melissa. To celebrate this special occassion, we decided to invite a small group of friends and family to dinner at The Red Roost(, one of the Eastern Shore's oldest and most loved crabhouses.

The Red Roost is located at 2670 Clara Rd in Quantico, Maryland. If you want to try this delicious all-you-can-eat dinner feast, you may want to plug this address into your GPS or give them a call at (410) 546-5443. It is well worth the drive! If you are not sure how to get there, stop by and pick me up on the way, I know where it is!

If you are dining at the Red Roost, you must order the "special." This is a several course meal consisting of the following:
1.Fried shrimp, fried clams, and hush puppies(almost a donut)
2.Corn on the cob(still in the husk)
3. Fried chicken
4. Hot Steamed Maryland Blue Crab!
(all of the above are best served with a couple of pitchers of cold beer and lots of napkins- things will get messy!)
There are instructions on how to pick a steamed crab on the Red Roost website, but, if you stop by and pick me up first, I will be glad to show you how it is done! DE- LISH- US!


This lovely donut was created by my friends at the Fractured Prune( at 1303 South Salisbury Blvd in Salisbury, MD for a former Miss Maryland. Isn't that fitting! The hot fresh FP donut is dipped in a raspberry glaze, then topped with powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs. YUM! Just like my Melissa- Hot, Fresh and Sweet!

I made melissa her own "giant donut cake". This beauty was double chocolate with butter cream and raspberry glaze. This is a donut you can share with your friends!

A Perfect Donut Kiss!

I don't think Melly liked the card I found for her. It had a flavor strip inside that was supposed to taste like a glazed donut. Maybe not so much!

A great time was had by all. There was plenty to eat and much merriment!

Happy Birthday to my very own "Sweet Melissa"!
I love you muchly!
