Aug 28 Blog Carnival - Favorite Food

This is a tough question...I have lots of foods I love to eat. There are certain times of the year when I enjoy some favorites, like fresh cucumbers and tomatoes right out of the garden. Then there are the special dishes like macaroni and cheese made from scratch that we only have during the holidays. On the coldest days of winter, homemade chicken soup would be my favorite. There are just too many to pick from.

Then it hit me...crab cakes! Not just any crab cakes! I LOVE the ones we get at Oceanaire Restaurant. I can't even begin to describe them. No fillers, just pure sweet lump crabmeat. I have always loved crab since growing up on the east coast and eating them on picnic tables covered in paper and the cooked crabs just dumped in the middle. Everyone would grab some crabs and a wooden hammer and a nut cracker and go to town. When every one was finished there would only be a large pile of shells left. Tough to get crabs like that in landlocked Indy!

That's it...my favorite food...crab cakes! Yum!

It's hard to pick just one favorite isn't it? Crab cakes do sounds like a great choice though! Yum!

I grew up in Maryland, but didn't like crabs or crab cakes when I was young. But yes, I have those same memories of paper covered tables and piles of shells. I did eventually like them, you see. Then I moved to land-locked Indy....
My mother was always so particular about crab cakes. So many have fillers. hard to find excellent ones.
I think crab covered tables are the epitome of summer. Or at least one of the epitomes of summer.
