Last of Vacation Foods, Poker & Superbowl Party

By now I have likely bored you to tears with some our vacation foods so this is the last of them. I must remember to take pictures of each meal to share as this vacation I forgot to take some and others have both of us in the picture so I can't really post those even though the food was excellent. This weekend we are hosting my husband's monthly poker game. This is a normal event we host. There should be about thirty-five for the poker that has esculated for this event to continue over night with me serving breakfast to about seventeen. That number will grow to about forty for the Superbowl party we are hosting. I have the menus set, some foods already made so am taking a bit of a break before going into full gear.

Blue Crab

Our last night before flying out from Fort Lauderdale we stopped at one of the casinos then ate dinner at the Rustic Inn Crabhouse. I ordered their World Famous Garlic Crabs entree and a side salad. This was Blue Crab clusters sauteed with garlic and their secret family recipe. My husband ordered the steak with sea scallops. Both meals were meant to please from the nicely prepared salad to the tasty seafood and perfectly prepared steaks.

This really is a restaurant to visit when in the Fort Lauderdale area. The atmosphere is quite pleasant and the dress is casual. Crabs are cracked with a wooden mallet. Bibs are offered and I do suggest them but they are optional. The staff really deserves kudos for fast, friendly service while attending to your every need.

Jaxon's Ice Cream Parlor

Trust me on this one, my husband can find the very best of the best ice cream parlors so it was no surprise when he found Jaxon's. I'm not a huge ice cream fan so waited in the car while he went into to get an amazing looking sundae made using old fashioned ice creams and real. He also took several pictures something he's learned from being around a foodie. I took a few pictures as he was enjoying the sundae.

So there you have it, a few highlights of just a few of the foods we enjoyed on our recent vacation. During this vacation we enjoyed bed & breakfast and condo accamodations instead of motels. Each have their pros and cons. It was a wonderful vacation with a lot of great foods!

Tomorrow I will be posting about this weekend's entertainment plans. By mid-week I should be back to the normal posting of recipes. Please stay tuned.
