Cook, Blog, Cook, Blog, Walk Dog, Cook, Sleep

Hef hangs out in the kitchen a lot. He gets lots of pets while waiting for water to boil or other such breaks in the kitchen. He also gets the occasional veggie or herb to nibble on. So the secret ingredient in my cooking is often bunny fur. Hef's hanging out with the vermouth here. That bun always finds the alcohol! Since I continue to either be at work, cooking, or sleeping, its a good spot for Hef to get the attention he deserves. Shadow hangs out in the kitchen a lot too, but I suspect its only to clean up what I drop on the floor.

On Sunday I had a craving for crab legs since our local supermarket was kind enough to put htem on sale and splash them across the front of the ad. Here they are with clarified butter! Surprisngly simple and we really liked them better then Red Lobster's. I steamed the crab legs for about 8 minutes, with a tablespoon of Old Bay Seasoning and some lemon juice in the water. I'm pretty satisfied that I have removed the need to go to Red Lobster for seafood. I can cook lobster and crab legs to Hef's dad's satisfaction and I firmly believe in not going out to eat what I can cook at home. Add one more dish to my repitoire!

Hef looks so cute up there on the table!

Hef is the cutest little tiny bun!

Crab legs are honestly the one thing I've missed since becoming a vegetarian (11 years ago). Every couple of years I'll let myself cheat and have them. And old bay sounds pretty good right now too. Hef's Dad is truly a lucky man.

Aw Hef ... you the man!!!

In our house bunny fur is considered a condiment.

Outstanding on the crab-legs - perfect.

We just got word that crabbing season starts here on July 14. We are booked for it!

Cassoulet .. BL used chicken and bacon - no sausage. I think she used a "quick" recipe from the internet!

I agree, eating at home is always better and at least you know where the hairs come from. ;)

Oh, but the Coconut Bay Shrimp -- delicious!

Keep the vermouth away from Hef -- who knows what he'll do with a dry martini!
