Mama’s Home Alone 8-6-16

Crab and beer

 

So the thing I LOVE about being home alone is the fact that I can cook whatever the hell I want to!

Seriously, I don’t have to listen to stuff like:

“But mama, I’m allergic to that!”

“But mama, we had that last time!”

“Okay, mom what is this?”

“So… do you mind cooking me a steak instead?”

Get my point?

Now you know why mama doesn’t mind eating alone sometimes 😉

So…

Today, I decided to show you what a typical “Mama’s home alone” meal looks like in my world.  As you can see in the photo above, I have steamed myself a fine kettle of blue crab from the great state of Maryland!

Never mind the beer bottle next to the crab as Mr. Adams may or may not be accompanying me.  I’m so sorry,  but I can neither confirm nor deny any information relative to his continued presence.

However,  I will say that a nice glass of Gewürztraminer just called for an invite.

I’m not sure which way I’ll go with that.  What say you?

Beer or a glass of wine?

I’ll wait until I hear back before I make my decision. If I don’t hear back soon I might end up drinking both.

Guys, please don’t let that happen 😉

Anyway,  you all know me, I’m always looking for ways to “edutain” myself. And to that end, I decided to search for a Youtube video on crab eating.

Don’t get it twisted, I already know how to do it, I just wanted to conduct a quick survey of techniques.

10 gozillion results later, I came across this little unpolished gem which shows a brother from Maryland (I think) giving a very thorough and practical demonstration on the ‘proper way’ to eat a crab.

Ladies, listen out for a couple of double entendres!  LOL! You might need a cigarette afterwards 😉

Side note:  After viewing the video, my blogger friend T. Wayne, who also hails from that great state, offered only one critique and that was, “At least use a knife when eating the claw meat dude!”

 

 

I love this dude!  Trust me, if you watched this, you now know all you need to know about eating crab!

A brother kept it 💯!

Now what?

By the way, I’m eating my crab now.  Is it beer or wine?

Meet me in comments 🙂

Enjoy your weekend!
