I feel like I've been posting about food a lot lately. When I originally made this blog I had hoped to post recipes pretty regularly, but then I kind of got out of cooking mode and into outdoors mode with all of the new animals, birds and foliage. Then there was the butterfly thing, of course. But I'm back to wanting to style and photograph my food more. I think it makes me enjoy it more, too.
Anyway, the other day I saw some crab cakes on sale, and they sounded so SO good. What crazy person doesn't like crab cakes? I decided they'd be my Friday treat dinner. They were great with broccoli and my first try at homemade lemonade. Well, sort of--it wasn't fresh-squeezed, despite the lemon wedge pictured. I bought some lemon and lime juice to have on hand for such occasions, and mixed some with ice, water and Truvia. It seemed to turn out okay. Not quite as natural-tasting as I imagined, but at least it's pulp-free! I don't understand people who like pulp. That means you, R.
Having these frozen crab cakes has inspired me to make my own (or maybe salmon cakes). How hard could they be? I'm wondering--is canned crab expensive? Is it good? Fresh is about a million dollars.
Enjoy your weekend!
