JUST A RECIPE & THOUGHT

CRAB CUPS
recipe here
Sometimes I add a pinch of curry powder to the crab mixture!  Yum!

I also use these cups for my 
MUSHROOM APPETIZERS

Saute: 1/4 c. butter with 1/2 c. finely chopped green onion and 1/2 pound finely chopped fresh mushrooms.

Sprinkle the sauteed mushroom mix with  2 tablespoons of flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon cayenne, 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 tablespoon chopped parsley and stir well.

Add: 1 cup cereal (half & half) cream. Cook until bubbling. Great made a day ahead! Can be frozen.

Fill the cups generously, put on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
I've also just made the mushroom mixture piping hot by itself and filled the cups just prior to serving!
Or serve the hot mushroom mix in a dish and let folks help themselves! Nice on Melba Toast too!
Works all ways!


People are so worried about what they eat 
between Christmas and the New Year, 
but they really should be worried about 
what they eat between the New Year
and Christmas.

I love your quote and I love anything with crab in it, perhaps I am stupid but I was reading the ingredients to see if I have them all and I can't see how much or where in your receipe you added the crab (I could figure it out I'm sure). Hope you had a great day......:-)Hugs

HAHAAAAA! True thought! :)

The crab cups do look very yummy. Yesterday I had some very delicious risotto! I wish I had the recipe for that!

I wish you a happy, healthy, prosperous, fruitful, productive, forgiving, merciful New Year 2011!

Love,

You're making me hungry early this morning. I certainly wouldn't mind sampling these -- they look delicious.
I really like the thought about eating between New Year and Christmas.
