December 24, 2012


Christmas is for us, as for most people, a time of traditions.  I can’t imagine Warner’s reaction if I served him something other than a standing rib roast on Christmas eve – no matter how festive and delicious the dish might be.  Also the fabulous crab.  I used to serve it as an appetizer – but these days there is just so much one person can eat.  Even at the holidays. The leftover uncooked crab became deviled crab.  Also wonderful.  And it made the cat very happy.  She has found that she likes something even more than shrimp….It’s lump crab!!!!
