It's outdoor Wednesday and I've already taken Hunter on a 1.5 mile walk in the neighborhood. This afternoon we will be going over to have playtime with Copper; I know he'll love it! Yesterday morning when hubby asked me what we were having for dinner, I knew immediately~it was a dish I saw on someone's blog. It wasn't a recipe per say, she just told what she was putting in her dish. So I had some Quinoa noodles that I cooked, added lump crab meat and medium size shrimp, asparagus, tomatoes, cilantro, garlic and green onions. Hubby cooked the shellfish and asparagus in butter, but next time I would do it in vegetable or chicken broth. The end result was that everything other than the noodles melded together, but without much spice. The great thing is that we got the crab in a can(I know, I wasn't sure how it would taste)right from the butcher and it was like having fresh crab. We don't care for King Crab, just like Dungeness Crab that we grew up eating in Palo Alto and that is the type we prefer.
I added some fresh tomatoes to the side and also garlic bread; it was good and we have left over Crab meat that we'll use in a salad tonight. Need to tweak this recipe a bit, but it was fun to just throw things together.
The clouds have moved in this afternoon and we will get thunder later on. California, can you please keep the rain and storms-we know you need them and we really don't. This gal needs some sunshine.
Hope you have a great afternoon!
