Two days ago I had my teeth cleaned by my awesome hygienist and we were talking about gardening and being a modern homesteader. I brought up that I had been making sodas lately. She asked me what flavors I create and I replied with my favorite, the Black Peppercorn Ginger soda, because I love Whiskey Gingers. Well, just so it happens she loves Whiskey Gingers too!! I told her I would drop some sodas by her house because she only lives a few blocks away so she can try out some non-store bought organic homemade soda, and in my opinion, the best soda!
I brought her some sodas later that day and we ended up hanging out for a little bit. I met her awesome husband and was invited into their nice home. Our dogs sort of got along, but you know how that goes if you have a little monster of your own. As I was leaving, her husband, who is a commercial crab fishermen, offered me some crab to take with me. Oh, my, god, I LOVE CRAB. I was so happy, but I kept my cool (I think?) and I was on my way with some amazingly fresh crab. What a great trade!
So here is what happened with the crab and summer squash I had just harvested:
Diana made the crab cakes so I don’t take credit for those, I just helped get all the meat out and made the squash.
Crab Cake ingredients:
Crab, Organic Bread Crumbs, Organic Canola Mayo, Green Onion from the Garden, Parsley from the Garden, Cayenne Pepper, Salt, Black Pepper
Marinated Summer Squash:
1 tbs White Wine Vinegar, 2 tbs Lemon juice, 1 – 2 tbs Thyme, pinch of fresh ground Black Pepper and Salt
