30 Days of Beverages – Day 10 – 1/3 of the way through…
…and yet I’m not even close to 1/3 of the way through all the drink possibilities there are, that’s for sure. A friend told me the other day that I have a future as a bartender when this is all over, so I suppose if the recession rears its ugly head again, we’ll call that my fall-back job. =)
Tonight we’re rushing a bit. I have a PTA Budget Meeting (yes, they let mom’s like me on the PTA board…I think they keep me around for Happy Hour!) and the weeone wanted to choose her own dinner. Fair enough since she’ll be bored out of her mind for 2 hours while a bunch of parents hammer out this year’s budget.
Her dinner of choice….crabcakes and apple sauce. Never keep fresh lump crabmeat within eyeshot of the weeone – she’ll be asking for crabcakes immediately! I’ve never tried the recipe on the side of the Old Bay container and today seemed like the day to to it. So, tonight you get a simple drink and Crab Cake recipe to boot!
Old Bay Seasoning Crab Cakes
2 slices bread, crusts removed
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Old Bay ( we use WAY more than that….Momma like’s ’em hot!)
2 teaspoons parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
1 egg, beaten
1 lb. crabmeat
Break bread into small pieces. Mix in mayonnaise, Old Bay, parsley, mustard and egg. Stir in crabmeat. Shape mixture into patties. Broil 10 minutes or fry until golden brown.
The weeone was the Chef tonight – she mixed, she measured, she shaped into cakes. All I did was the fryin’…so she would not do the cryin’ – if you know what I mean!
Hooray! A great dinner….served with….a Pomegranate Margarita. 3 parts mix to 1 part tequila – this is GREAT stuff. You should run, not walk, but RUN to your local liquor store and buy it. I could chug this it’s sooo yum!
