Dinner Tonight FAIL

Oh, you guys, it was so bad…

One bite and I wanted to throw up. I don’t think I actually chewed it up and swallowed it; I think it went in, and then straight back out my mouth.

Oh my goodness, you guys… It was SO bad.

I tried to make crab cakes -specifically, Muffin Tin Crab Cakes.

When I found the recipe, I was really excited because I have a muffin tin that I’ve never used and my last attempt at crab cakes (QUITE a while ago) was also a failure. I wanted to redeem my good cook name -even if I’m really not that great of a cook.

Muffin Tin Crab Cakes

  • 1 lb. crab meat (I got lump… I think…)
  • 2 cups whole-wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cups low-fat mayo
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large egg-white
  • 10 dashes of hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Generously coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Mix all ingredients, separate evenly in cups and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Seemed simple enough… Actually, it was quite simple… Too simple… I should have known.

Tasted absolutely terrible. Gross me out.

In other news, I skipped the gym today. I did not want to skip the gym today; I had to.

“Really, Shae, did you have to?”

She never goes away… And YES I had to. I apparently have a research proposal due next Friday that I have not even begun to think about. I’m STRESSED out.

Boo. I’m always stressed out.

I do, however, have awesome news. I slept for 10 straight hours last night. I crashed around 8 or 8:30 p.m. -just fell asleep on the couch (well, on Husband on the couch -he’s a good pillow!) and didn’t wake up until 6:30 this morning. I felt so rested! :)

It was amazing. I recommend any chance you get to feel tired early and fall asleep on your husband (unless your husband happens to be a terrible pillow).

Husband then did the sweetest thing ever: He woke me up to get me to bed and totally volunteered cuddling before I passed out again. I’m sure I was out minutes after hitting the pillow (the actual pillow), but the volunteered-cuddling was awesome.

Tomorrow I am going to attempt BBQ beef in the slow cooker. Hopefully, it goes better than… the gross that was my food today. Yeck!

    The key to great crab cakes is using mainly crab and very little bread crumbs. Get your crab meat from the SeaFood shop http://www.theseafoodshop.net/ 6470 E. Central it comes in a can and is refrigerated. They also have the best seafood in Wichita.

    Also go to Bonefish and order their crab cake appetizer. They have the best crab cakes in this area and they rival many restaurants I’ve eaten at on the coast (pacific).

    The internet has a number of copycat Bonefish recipes.

    I hope you try to make crab cakes again.
