I’m such a woose (sp?). My neighbour was diving on the west coast this afternoon and he caught a crab. As previously promised, this crab was mine! Now, I’m eternally grateful because a) I love crab, and b) Scottish crab is supposedly the best you can get. But I am rather scared of them. Everytime I went near my gift he snapped his pincers at me. Obviously knew what was in store…
After spending an inordinate amount of time looking at the boiling water roll rythmically in the pan I managed to plop Mr Crab into his doom. Shed a little tear. This is the first time I have ever purposely killed something – I’ve never even squished a spider. But being a meat-eater it was a worthwhile experience.
Off to a hen day tomorrow (lunch, horse riding and dinner – I’m pushing for karaoke but it’s not a popular option) so the cooked meat will have to wait until Sunday to be made into cakes and potted crab. Will let you know how it goes. 🙂
