The bounty of crabs came from some joint on Wise Avenue. They were big and heavy but probably steamed a mite too long, as the meat was on the mushy side. Flavorful, but mushy.
We had a bunch of leftover bread and some heavy cream that I had originally bought for another use, so I whipped up a savory bread pudding (using this recipe, more or less) to go with the crabs. (Onion rings are my usual preferred accompaniment, but I have a fear of frying.)
For dessert: a chocolate bundt cake. Mr Minx likes his cakes simple, chocolate, and sans frosting, and that's what he got. It wasn't as moist as I would have liked, but it went well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
There were almost a dozen crabs left over, so looks like we'll be having crab cakes and Lord knows what else this week!
