This past weekend the Hubby had a chance to go fishing off the coast with his fishing buddies. They filled their crab tags.
The pots were so full, they didn’t even bother measuring the crabs. If they couldn’t immediately tell it was over the size limit they threw it back, because there was another bigger one waiting.
So he wanted me to make the Crab Corn Chowder that we (I really mean he) is having for dinner. I don’t eat crab. Yes, yes I know. Everyone tells of its glorious taste. I don’t like it, and it kinda grosses me out. Save your breath. I won’t change.
In order for me to make this soup, he had to crack all the crab. There are just somethings I won’t do.
Ian was fascinated by the process, but wouldn’t eat any crab. Sid finally took a bite…..and was hooked!
The whole time he hovered around, stealing crab when his dad wasn’t looking.
The green bowl, in the picture below, was full of crab so I dumped it in soup. Ty put about another half a crab in it then left the room. He came back to an empty bowl.
Sid also ate some soup, but not that much because it was really spicy, and while he likes spicy food, it might have been a little too much for him.
Of course he later came over and finished the salad I had been eating for dinner.
Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!
I would like to tell you I have a fun Cinco de Mayo menu planned for tonight, but I don’t.
I kinda forgot about it when I was menu planning and since I have already been to the store, it is too late to change it. Plus we just had Mexican food….
I am feeling in a cooking rut lately and I am having a difficult time coming up with dinners. Between Pinterest and my Plan2Eat menu planner/recipe book, I have tons of options, I just can’t seem to decide what to cook.
You might not know it, but I don’t really like food. There are somethings I can enjoy eating, but I would prefer not to eat. This has nothing to do with calories or weight gain or anything like that. I just don’t really like food, or the whole eating process, but I do like to cook.
So sometimes it gets hard to cook, because I don’t take pleasure in the eating, everything becomes a chore.
At least I know it will pass and I will once again enjoy cooking and menu planning.
Just so you know, it took a lot of effort to make sure this week’s menu wasn’t entirely made up of recipes involving Parmesan cheese.
