Deep fried and battered? But you can't eat the shell, can you? I like crabs,lobsters and other (crustaceans or arachnids? Isn't the spider related to the lobsters? I'll need to check...too early in the morning)...where was I? Something about liking those hard to eat foods. Reminded me of the old joke about the cannibal mom telling her son about the airplane that was flying over head, "It's like a lobster. Good to eat but hard to get through the shell."

Do you know, I have never had crab. I am not going to either - until I visit Crisfield. May as well wait to have the very best of the best! :)

Butler and Bagman: All that South Carolina coastal living, and you know nothing about soft shell crabs?

I guess you can take the boy out of the North, and you can even teach him how to like grits, but you can't teach him that just because he never ate soft shell lobster, their ain't no such thing as a soft shell crabs.

Ive always loved a crab cake sandwich. So good. I would have love to have been there.
I'm working on the sweetheart for coming Labor Day weekend. I did some Tall talking this past weekend and he just said yeah, that would be nice. That's better than saying nothing at all :)
