This week has sucked the big one. Mostly because of work stuff. I won’t bore you with the details. I’ll just keep it short and say I’ve been quite irritated, or crabby as some might say.
On a positive note… my Dad sent me a dozen steamed blue crabs on Monday night (he works part-time for a crab house, i.e., place that sells crabs and other seafood). I was out with the girls (Shannon and Amy) and couldn’t do anything with them that evening. So I picked them last night.
They were BIG. How big? See for yourself…
I didn’t finish until around 10:00 PM, so I haven’t talked to Dad yet to tell him just how lovely these crustaceans were. And how full. I got 6 packed cups of blue crab meat for my efforts. That’s like 2 pounds. And crab meat of this quality, especially from blue crabs, is not only hard to come by, but also very expensive.
We’re going to be eating some really good fried crab cakes sometime real soon.
