Our grocery store advertised they were having a two-day seafood sale, on Friday and Saturday. One thing we both love is seafood - all kinds. I looked through the sale ad and saw they had some awesome deals on shrimp, crab, crab legs, scallops, etc.,
etc. I couldn't wait for the work day to end. I wanted to get there before the good legs were taken! Not to worry - the freezer was full of nice, big packages of snowcrab clusters; all for $6.99/lb. I scooped up 5 lbs. worth. Shrimp was $12 for a 2 pound
bag of peeled and deveined large shrimp. If only this were a pay week! I still managed to get a good supply, and even a can of lump crabmeat so I can make crabcakes one night.
It had been a while since we had crablegs, so I could not wait for hubby to get home. We had tropical shrimp salads with fresh pineapple and mango in them. I found another jar of Bill's Seafood Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing in my cupboard. Bill's is one
of our favorite restaurants on Chincoteague Island. When there I always have their tropical shrimp salads with this dressing on it. When I discovered I could buy the dressing I was in heaven. Now I can have these salads at home. Jon broiled some shrimp
with cajun seasoning sprinkled on them and we had warmed rosemary/olive oil bread. The star of the show was crablegs! Those legs were so sweet and tender! They practically jumped into that melted butter on their own and into my mouth! We had a little over
a pound of legs each and after dinner we rolled into the livingroom and plopped ourselves on the couch to rest our stomachs for dessert. The other night we had each chosen our favorite ice cream from our local ice cream shop; butter pecan for him; double
chocolate peanut butter for me. That's what we had for dessert - a perfect end to the week, or a perfect beginning to the weekend??
