It was a soup and sandwich type day today. Steady persistent rain, all day it seemed. So a grilled cheese and tomato soup were served today by my better half at lunch. That about took me out for the afternoon. It’s easy to relax when you know you don’t have to rush back to work this week.
But tonight we had some long-overdue homemade crabcakes. I was going to eat both of mine but I managed to save one for later on tonight. It’s been a great year and I’ve eaten a good number of crabcakes. I still think the best I had was from Pappas in Parkville.
But there were several good ones in Ocean City this year and about a dozen other towns in Maryland. I could eat seafood every day. And Maryland crabs would be at the top of the list.
Tonight I used the main Old Bay recipe but I used some Frenches spicy brown mustard instead of the standard mustard. I also added a touch of Worcestershire sauce. Instead of the 2 teaspoons of Old Bay, I used 2 1/2. Also, a touch of ground mustard and just a little more mayo than called for. And maybe a little less parsley than called for.
Usually, I pan fry them but today I broiled them. I might have to go this route more often. All I know is I can’t wait for the season to begin again and the fresh Maryland crabs to be plentiful.
Random Thoughts of the Day
- Not having to step foot outside on a sloppy day is key to a good attitude.
- Well, I’m only human, I can’t totally ignore that tin of cookies.
- I’ve got to spend some time this evening writing a few notes and catching up with some friends.
- I’ll do better Monday because I’m getting outside a good bit. Which reminds me to go charge the camera batteries again.
