Lump Crabmeat and Lumped Leg

Posted by Sandra on August 3, 2008

Now your curiousity is piqued, I’m sure… LOL

Made phenomenal crabcakes last night – a hit with all the kids even though it had peppers in it.  I used Paula Deen’s recipe from Food Network:

Crab Cakes

Episode:  Paula Deen’s Wedding

Crab Cakes
1 pound crabmeat, picked free of shells
1/3 cup crushed crackers (recommended: Ritz)
3 green onions (green and white parts), finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped bell pepper
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 egg
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
Dash cayenne pepper
Flour, for dusting
1/2 cup peanut oil
Favorite dipping sauce, for serving

In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients, except for the flour and peanut oil. Shape into patties and dust with flour.Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When oil is hot, carefully place crab cakes, in batches, in pan and fry until browned, about 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip crab cakes and fry on other side until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Serve warm with preferred sauce.

 PHENOMENAL!!!  Ayla could eat it very easily, the crab is very tender and the rest is so munchable… you must try! 😀


On other news, I had to see my doc last Friday for my leg problems.  She sees a lump and is concerned.  I knew the lump was there, it’s been there a couple of months, so really I’m no worse off than I was, other than the fact that *I* wasn’t concerned about the lump until she said something!  I go for full blood workups on the 11th of the month – I thought my leg problems may have been related to this stubborn weight from Ayla, but she said one has nothing to do with the other.  Sigh.  Oh well, we shall see.  Damned lymphedema.


And last but not least, I had to show off a couple of wonderful pictures of my family taken this weekend… a few little impromptu shots:

The final picture is the rare sighting of Mom on film.  I either a: don’t show at all or b: look like the walking dead.  For an old broad, I figure I don’t look toooo shabby.  (Don’t say anything.  Let me live in my Happy World for now).
