Nariah says… #49

Posted: August 14, 2011 in Comedy, Nariah

A short and sweet one.

Since Toryn has been here, Nariah has lost the ability to sleep alone in her room. We’re slowly making positive strides back in the right direction. So last night I’m tucking Nariah in bed and pulled the sheets up over her.

Daddy… I really wanted to sleep in your bed tonight. But since you already tucked me in I guess I know my answer huh?

I smiled affirmatively back at her. I’m sure saying “Pretty much” would’ve been cold here wouldn’t it? But since she laughed after saying it, I thought that was pretty cute, funny and very intelligent all at the same time.

Sorry, I don’t have pics, they smelled too good and got eaten too fast.
During the blizzard of ’10, we dealt with cabin fever, what better way to survive than to cook right?
I started with the Delmarva Crabcake recipe as the base and modified it with personal flair in the spirit of being snowed in from the blizzard.

1 pound lump crab meat (or the bluefin clawmeat that was on sale this week at safeway for 4.99, still was the bomb, aint no shame in my game!)
1 cup bread crumbs
a few generous shakes of Old Bay seasoning
2 capfuls lemon juice
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/4 cup milk
1 handful of chopped chives (didn’t measure this, lol) 
1 egg 
a few shakes of garlic powder
1/3 cup chopped red onion (if you like extra twang)
dash of nutmeg

1. mix all ingredients together.
2. Shape into good size crab cakes.
3. Fry in butter or margarine or oil over medium heat, flipping quite frequently

Let rest over paper towel to absorb grease, serve plain or with this bomb sauce called “Lousiana seafood sauce
