Crabby Dinner With The Mohs

CRABBY DINNER...

Buying the crabs is easy, cooking them is a problem!!  There are seven crabs to be cleansed and cooked, that is the real problem for Reanaclaire in this small kitchen with small pots and utensils.  Eventually I have to use three different forms of cooking these messy crabs.  LOL...

I ended up baking four in the oven, one in the multi cooker and two over the gas stove!  Oh my goodness, it was real messy and I don't think I want to do that again unless someone takes over the cleaning, brushing and cooking up the crabs.  No wonder they charge more outside... LOL..

OH, I forgot to mention this... The "vampire-styled slaying" was not done by me, I could not bring myself to do it... I am only in charge of bathing them up and making them edible... LOL..
Cleaning and brushing the shells.... takes a lot of time and effort!
Especially big ones... oh yes, needs a lot of hammering too!
Ended up baking and comes out like these... 
Too much flesh and messy!!
No wonder some do not like to eat crabs... they need too much fingers on them... 
Our dinner on that night... 
Mary brought over some Greece food!
One for the album before we dig into the food!

  5. I come to this place every now and then. The LA venues are really nice, the crowd is full of regulars, and the food and drink specials are pretty good! The staff is great and really gets to know your name. Totally worth your time on any night for good food and drink.

  6. I love crabs and I don't mind the messy job of cleaning. Best of all I don't mind getting my fingers messy to enjoy eating them. You did an amazing job cooking for your guests.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
