Hi Lesley!! The "how do you eat your crab" thread reminded me of one thing, the "chirashi", the sushi I mentioned above, and the one I had and liked very much had oodles of flaked crab as one of the toppings!!
If you ever try this recipe, you could use some of your fresh crabs, I bet it will be delicious!!
Welcome to DC! I'm fairly new here, but already I love this forum. The members here are very friendly and helpful, and I'm so glad a friend told me about this site. I hope you'll find some good recipes you can make as a nanny.
