It’s just hell to live in a place …

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

… where crab is so plentiful people have to give away their surplus.

Two cooked crabs in a cooler

Thank you, furrydoc!

I haven’t opened and eaten a whole crab since I was 19. And that was on a beach in San Francisco, where the crab was accompanied by large torn chunks of French bread and I was accompanied by … a tall, dark stranger.

Might not have the ambiance this time and my dinner companions will all be short, four-legged and hairy. But this’ll be a delicious adventure.

    YUMMM! In my neck of the woods, the soft-shelled blue crab is the delicacy of choice, but I’ve eaten dungeness crabs in Seattle and thought I was in heaven.

    Seafood (like tomatoes) just can’t be beat when it’s fresh.

  2. Kent McManigal Says:

    I approve of people eating bugs.

  3. The Infamous Oregon Lawhobbit Says:

    Kent, that’s “people eating bugs that eat the stuff that sinks to the bottom of the ocean.”

    I remember fighting one monster when I was in Bandon – normally one of the small ones getting ahold of me as I pulled it out of the pot was no big deal, he’ just get flicked into the bay. But the one that got me that time was a keeper and we had to go mano y clawo, man versus scavenger, to get him off me and into the ice chest.

  4. Claire Says:

    Kent and Hobbit — Oh thank you for making my lunch seem soooooooo much tastier.

  5. Michael Grosh Says:

    Pat:
    An Eastern Shore comment if there ever was one. You forgot the corn, though.

    Is it summer yet?

  6. puptent Says:

    It’s good to hear that you’ve upgraded your dining companions. Your new ones will pay very close attention to you; hang on every word, watch every move that you make, idolize…
