Crabby madness

Friday, June 12, 2015

I love crab. When I come home, it is what I crave. Today I took my mother to the market and we got an energetic large live dungeness crab, which I cooked for dinner, along with a couple of other dishes.

Later in the evening, two very good old friends picked me up for a bite out - and we had a yummy Malaysian chili crab dish. Now I know 2 dinners in one night may sound insane, but I really love dungeness crab, and I didn't eat anything else during the second dinner. I did my best to help, but we couldn't finish off the crab. By the end of the evening, I was slouched in my seat, disappointed that my belly had reached its limit and I couldn't put any more of the delicious crab in it.

A younger me could have done it, could have finished the crab. But this me either has diminished capacity, or is unwilling to abuse my digestive system, even for a yummy favorite. I guess this means the healthy lifestyle change is sinking in!

    Crab is truly delicious. My son is also a great fan of crab. It is, however, very hard to eat, so it has that built-in anti-binge feature where I'm concerned. I need my over-indulgences not to involve excessive peeling and extracting. But you might be an expert, having grown up in a place where crab is so often on the menu!

    It's great that you're "unwilling to abuse [your] digestive system." You have hit the nail on the head of what should be among the most motivating factors---not to abuse our digestive systems!! Mine has been WAY OVERUSED in my 58 years!!

    Dungeness crab is a true delight. I know how hard it is to say "no" even when feeling stuffed. I miss the days when we would go to my uncle's place and feast on fresh cooked crab. He had his own crab pots and would put out the boat from the house to collect from the pots. Glad you didn't overeat, but sorry you couldn't eat all the crab. emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like a great evening! I too find I really can't stuff myself anymore, and that's a good thing, but understand your disappointment that you just could not eat anymore crab. --Pam
