Oh, how time flies

      I can't believe this weekend is already over. Right now I wish I would have gone to grad school so at least I could prolong adulthood for another 2 more years (which mean I would have been in school for tens years with three degrees which isn't a bad thing) but anywho, besides doing most of my To-Do list I decided to make some things.

For some reason I was really craving crab, so I made a crab appretizer and I made a dish that I found in Food and Wine magazine. The appretizer was one that I made before but I added crab to it. I usually has bacon in it with the chive and onion cream cheese but I used the crab instead this time.

You mix all that together, cook it for 15 minutes at 375 degrees and they end up looking like this

And the for dinner I made an item called Buttery Crab Bread Pudding. You need:
  • 10 ounces lump crabmeat
  • 1 tablespoon of parsley and chives (I used green onion though)
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper (I used a spice mix that included cayenne pepper)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 24-inch bagette
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup half and half
-Preheat the oven to 350, butter the dish and mix the crab meat with the first 5 ingredents.
-Then you slice the baguette,buttering each side. Using a spoon, take the crab mixture evenly between the slices of bread.
-After that, mix the last four ingredents in a bowl forming a custard.

-Pour the custard evenly over the bread and let stand for 10 mintues.
-Bake the bread pudding for 30 minutes until the top is lightly browned and the custard is set.

-Let it sit for 10 minutes before serving.

And then I made a cake today after finishing the rest of my list. I'll probably post pictures of the at some point but it's a white cake with strawberry jam and fresh strawberries as the filling.

Well, the weekend is over :( and here's to the start of another work week.
