Had leftover crab from our anniversary dinner, but not enough for two servings. After diggking out every shred of crab meat from teh remaining legs, knees, and nuckles, I had enough to make crab cakes, crab bisque, or a thermidor using crab instead of lobster. Unfortunately, DW likes none of the above. She does however, love crab rangoons. I looked in the fridge and found egg roll wraps, instead of wonton wrappers. So I decided to make crab egg rolls, using the crab rangoon recipe I know and love, but with tne addidtion of garlic and onion powders, a bit of Chines 5 sspice, and water chestnuts and bamboo shoots. I mixed everything together, rolled the egg rolls, and fried them up. They were edible, but that's all. My rangoons are delectable. My egg rolls are wondeerful. This experiment was not very good. It wasn't terrible, but defineitely not worth the effor fo extracting the crab meat,
and using it. Hind site site tells me that I have the ingrideints for a good salad. The crab meat would have been great in a salad. Oh well, not all experiments work out. Crean cheese, sugar, crab meat, onion, and garlic just don't work well together. Lesson learned. Until next time, friends,
