Chilled King Crab legs, Shrimp and Make Believe Crabmeat (crab with a K)
Homemade Cocktail Sauce

First Course
Linguini with White Clam Sauce

Second Course
Baked Clams
Baby Calamari Suffed with Mushroom, Olive and Sun Dried Tomato
Baked Shrimp with Tomato, Garlic and Breadcrumbs

(Small Break)

Baby Octopus Salad
Scallops with Lemon and Parsley

Main Course
Lobster Stuffed with Jumbo Lump Crabmeat
Glazed Carrots

Dessert
Gingerbread Chocolate Petits Fours
Russian Teacakes
Italian Fig Cookies
Gingerbread Cookies

Took pix of most of the food.
