Friday This and That

Well ... after a busy week, I'm ready for the long Labor Day weekend - how about you? I plan to do a little sewing and quilting, just a couple of chores, and spend a lot of time with Mr. Squash!

In my last post I mentioned Kaaren at The Painted Quilt was getting ready for her very first "First Friday Freebie" beginning today. If you haven't been there already, please go over and check out the free design - it's adorable, very Fall-like and right up my alley! You won't be disappointed

The other day Mr. Squash called me from work to say that he had dinner "in the bag" from one of his co-workers, Rocky! Immediately I knew what that meant - Rocky's husband had been out crabbing! Sure enough, she gave us two beautiful cooked and cleaned Dungeness Crabs! Thank you so much, Rocky! What a wonderful dinner we had! Fresh crab, local cantaloupe, tomatoes and sliced bread!

I like my crab dipped in a little lite mayo mixed with lots of fresh lemon juice. Mr. Squash prefers his with melted butter! Ah, the joys of the bounty from the Pacific Northwest!
I'll be back on Monday or Tuesday with some peeks at what I'm up to in the studio! Enjoy your weekend!!

Oh yumm, I don't know that I should be drooling over crab at such an early time of the day. Hope you have a great long weekend.

Ulla said...

Your crabs are BIG! I would prefer your way with lemon and mayo.

Oh, it doesn't look like there is enough for the rest of us. LOL.
Yummy. I am all for the melted butter. I love fresh boiled shrimp dipped in butter.

Mmm crab lovely- was this an open invite? If so add another plate I'm on my way.LOL I've just been trying to pare down my next post on New Quay. I'm definately in a seaside mood now. :-)

I hope you are having a lovely weekend. I couldn't catch up sooner as we had no internet until this evening. Hugs.

Your Dungeness crab looks divine... I love, love, love, love, love Dungeness! Mr. Zombie went crabbing with a friend a few years ago, and brought home 4 fully cooked Dungeness crabs. So fresh I swear one of them whispered "eat me" to me. Best crab I ever had. Now I'm craving it. DARN YOU CANDACE!

Ha... I guess I should have pointed out the best Dungeness crabs ever (EVER!) were cooked at his friend's house (Johnny's and water, nuttin' else). Though I am suspicious that there's a hot tub of crab just off the Clatsop Spit. Rumors.
