We picked up some veggies, yep back to the HEB, and then headed home to DEface all the food. Regular readers know that Brenda doesn't like to eat anything with a face on it. So Gina, Rollie and I removed all the faces in preparation for the dinner.
Rollie was actually the chief cook for this operation and he brought his big pot and burner over.
We cooked those dozen crabs for a kind of appetizer, now they are scrumptious but I really do think you use more calories getting into them than they actually provide in nourishment. Hey, maybe that could be a new diet, All You Can Eat Crab, Losing while you Eat!
For those from the West Coast these Blue Crabs appear to be a little smaller than the Dungeness but just as tasty. Gina definitely can get into them pretty fast, I'm not sure if she does it as fast as my brother Brent does the Dungeness but she is definitely pretty quick.
Now the veggies were the highlight. Rollie boiled potatoes, corn, and whole onions in the pot with some crab boil and boy I am not sure I can ever eat the old regular kind again. These had kick to them.
I just thought I better mention we didn't eat all forty pounds of shrimp. We have frozen 30 for Brenda to try and haul across the border. Wait for the shrimp story to take the place of the butter banditry next year. What a great meal with great company though. I have even been learning a little Louisanaese over the last couple of days so now I know I like my tomato sandwiches with MYannaise as opposed to that boring old Canadian Mayonaise.
