Whatcha got cookin', good lookin'? Dinner 10/24/2013

Mrs. K is still out of the country, so it will be leftovers for me again tonight.

There is so much food in the fridge that needs to be used up, I hate to make something new. But I think tomorrow I definitely need a night out.

so,having just finished reading trevorh's fantastic thread about crabbing/crab dishes i thought"'arry it's a while since you've had crabs" reaching for my address book i thought "no,you've only just finished the tube of ointment the doc gave you last week" plan b was a visit to frank the fish my friendly fishmonger in tesco.there he stood,resplendant in his white overall clutching a huge chopper.i said "frank put that away,zip up your pants,was yer hands & tell me how much your crabs are" he said "5 each" i replied "bleedin' 'ell i was a millionaire last week" looking puzzled he said "i've only got two.a male & a female...a cock & a hen,which do you want" i paused,considered my options & how i would deliver my response & you'll be relieved to hear,fellow gastronauts,that i opted for franks hen!!

Harry, what exactly ya got going there? It seems your description got... err... *sidetracked*
Is that a crab stuffing that is put back into the shell for serving?

Wedge salad: Take one head of iceberg lettuce, core, slice in half through where core was. Slice each half again. Four wedges. Serves four.
It's basically a salad that isn't broken into pieces and retains the crisp, crunchiness iceberg is known for. It looks nice with the dressing drizzled over the wedge.

blame forty_caliber he said he likes my story boards!!.spot on pac.just opened up the crab,cracked the claws.picked out all of the meat into a bowl,mixed it up & popped it back in the shell.the meat & coral in those orkney crabs is so sweet it doesn't need any seasoning.just the garlic mayo for dipping.can't gild the lilly mate!!
ah,so that's wedge salad.now that the uk salads are at an end & the spanish/us imports are on the shelves i'll give it a go.lot sweeter than the uk produce 'cos of the sun i guess
