after the hunting and gathering comes the feasting. pop the crabs in a big pot of water to cook. lay the outdoor table with some old newspaper. whip up an onion and tomato salad. set out some finger bowls. pick your condiments of choice. slice a loaf of white crusty bread. slather it with butter. pour yourself a cold drink. get to work shelling your crabs. it's smelly and it's messy. it's an all time favourite meal. simple and delicious. one of life's greatest pleasures.
