Salad with Crabcake on Top

I had lunch yesterday at Winston's, with a woman I've know for about 10-12 years. I did the flowers for her four daughters' weddings. The last wedding was more than 4 years ago, and I was very glad to see her again and catch up. I had always admired her sense of style, elegance and poise, and wished we could become friends. I guess we had to get all the weddings behind us before that could happen. I enjoyed hearing about all her girls; were they are now and how many children they have. It is a very close family, and I admire them so much. We talked about how both of us are lucky to have such good children and grandchildren.

The salad with fruit and avocado was topped with a crunchy crab cake, but I didn't remember to take a photo of it. I can't whip out the camera in front of just anyone, can I? Trust me - it was very good! I think they ought to serve it with two crab cakes on top.....lol. The iced tea was flowing, and we managed to skip dessert......I feel self-righteous!

I'm working today and for the next two - so visiting might be sparse. Have a good weekend.

YUM...when we were at the beach last week I had crab cakes and oh my, they were good! I did have a salad but didn't think to put the crab cakes on the salad. I bet that would have been delicious.

I got a kick out of your not taking the photo...I often think friends think I'm nuts taking photos of things like my lunch ... but we bloggers know we can make an entry out of it!!
Sounds delicious.

Too close to dinner time to be reading this... sounds good.

Hmmm. Crabcake Caesar is a favorite of mine, but the addition of avocado tips this into something sinful!

Seems like you're hanging out at Winston's a lot these days:) Not a big crab cake fan here but I am betting I would have found something to eat there that I would love.

Winston's - boy, if I lived in the area I'd be sure to make it my business to have lunch there.

Like the sound of the lunch you had.

I recently made my first guacamole dip using an avocado that I've never had.

Delicious
