Feeling crabby…

We went to MDP’s work party this weekend…they like many work places that are busy during the holiday (end of year) choose to have their work party after the holidays. Before I got any hi nice to meet you (though I have met quite a few of the guys already) I had a shout out requests. :)

“Can you do pulled pork again?” I asked what kind of pulled pork and I got any you do is great. “You owe me a peanut butter and chocolate cheesecake…I’ve been waiting patiently (and he really has…he said that a while ago).” Then the table kind of lighted up with realizing that I was the girl who was always sending food. And lots of people were kind enough to tell me that they loved my food.

And then there is the guy to whom I am pretty much the crab and corn chowder girl. He asks all the time for me to make it and every time I say the same thing…not cost effective. Which he always says he will pay for it but I don’t think he truly realizes how much just the crab cost. Or maybe he just has way better finances than me. :D Anyway I told his girlfriend and him that I would put the recipe up on the site so that they could make it at home.

Obviously this is going to be at its best when it is corn season but I do eat this all year round. One of our local farms freezes corn that does not taste like frozen corn. It’s great for times when I want corn chowder and it’s not the right season. Some may argue that just means that I am to wait until it’s corn season…tell that to my tummy…it doesn’t follow seasons and neither do my cravings.

  1. This is one of my favorite soups, I am lucky and have a brother in law that runs a butcher shop and keeps me supplied with crab meat at a reasonable price. That crab in a can that you find by the tuna, should be outlawed.

  2. Mmm this is one of my favorite comfort foods.

  3. Your photographs and missive have pushed me over the line and I’ve sent your recipe to my husband with the hope that he’ll be as inspired by your post as I am to make it for me. Thank you!

  4. Ohhh, Peabody, you’re going to kill me. The closest I get to fresh crab in my little podunk New Mexico town is in a can labeled “lump crab meat.” And this is from a girl who used to live on the coast of southern Califnornia, and before that the coast of Virginia… Excuse me while I go curl up around crabby memories.

  5. Helen in CA says:

    Yeah…there’s corn season. And then there’s CRAB season.

  6. Oooh, this sounds so good! One of these days, if I can find some crabmeat on sale… :D

  7. Made this last night and it was so yummy!! Due to personal taste, I added peppered bacon bits, Old Bay in place of all seasonings, and a pkg of Hollandaise sauce. Oh my, makes ya wanna slap ya mamma!! Lol !! My husband couldn’t stop raving over it! Now, it’s 630am and I’m wondering how it would taste for breakfast!! Thanks for sharing, this is def a keeper!
