Ginny's Saturday's Treat :o) CRABS

I haven't been out of the house in three weeks..resting ...So this morning first part take care of some business while the item was on sale...< that's for another Post :o)

After that mission on to the "Farmers Market".. where Cecil treated me to a dozen blue male crabs :o)  ( those of you who know about them , "eat your heart out " :o)

I couldn't wait to get home and pull out the pot and get the seasoning ready..:o) notice I'm doing a lot of smiling :o)
I had a can of beer that was left by one of my
grands about 3 years ago.. so I put that into 
the pot, added some vinegar, some water, and
a 1/4 cup (more or less) of Old Bay Seasoning
some crushed red pepper ...then added those
same seasoning over the crabs that I put into the 
pot one or two at a time..those little suckers
like to crab hold of anything and not let go.

 Turning the crabs isn't necessary, but I wanted to fit the whole dozen in at the same time , which still didn't work..I had three
I had to cook after the first were done...

Here is a dish fit for a Saturday Feast just for Ginny...Cecil doesn't care for them...He likes the meat , but doesn't like to "pick" can't don't eat :o)  that means more for me...I haven't had them in a long I ate four at once. Then I packaged them up in three's and put into the freezer for two more treats later..One I'm going to have when I finish this post... :o)  They were Sweet, and delicious..

How nice that Cecil bought such a treat for you, Ginny. Sounds like you really enjoyed them. I don't think I've ever tried them. :)

Cecil was trying to make up for being an A** :o) he should know better by now to mess with me :o) If he could afford it I'd make up with only Diamonds. :o) next life:o)

Mrs. Pickles.
I've eaten half of them now ( had more today as a snack) maybe I will have to get mad at Cecil again by the weeks end to get more :o)

Well did him buying the crabs work? I must know so I can add that one to my husband playbook.

Gingerbreadshouse7 said...

not entirely, I could have bought a dozen crabs myself, I just needed to let him off easy this time. I have another agenda.:o)

I did take it easy :o) I can be mean as a snake :o)

good your boys like seafood , that's the first step in not being a fussy eater :o) They won't starve, there's always some kind of fish in the waters. :o)
