Photography: Food: Mama’s On The Half Shell 7/8/23

I was in Baltimore for a family reunion earlier this month. I caught up with some cousins on my father’s side of the family. My mom came with me, and it was the first time that we have traveled together with me being an adult. And it was the first time, that she had been to Charm City.

My cousin Lisa had a prior engagement. Her daughter, Alicia, who has a day job that has up very early in the morning, was extremely tired and missed our text — and me knocking on her door. My cousin Qulock, my mom and Catherine went to dinner at Mama’s On The Half Shell in the Canton Square section.

Because of Instagram, I was the only one, who took pictures of my food. I mean if there isn’t a picture, did it happen? But on a serious note, they were a highlight of the short trip, and I hope to stop by there again.

Caption: You can’t go to Maryland or to Baltimore without having a lot of crab, including this appetizer, Crab Dip: Lump crab with their house blend of creamy cheeses, served in a bread bowl with accoutrements.
