I made crab cakes for dinner last night. Followed the recipe on my old can of Old Bay (newer cans have a different recipe that includes dry mustard). They were great. Had half of the batch last night. Having the rest tonight.

It was fun to tour the naval academy and then drive over to Baltimore for dinner. Probably one of our favorite places to take our out of town guests and we had plenty of them.
I only ate at Haussner's twice, but both times were great.


When you took visitors to the Naval Academy, did you take them to John Paul Jones' crypt? That's one of my favorite places in the Yard.

My mom is from Strong, Arkansas. About as far as you can get from Bella Vista while remaining in the same state.

They're a common starter course on the West coast. That said, I've never had Maryland crabcakes, which are likely way better.

I make them for dinner quite often, but they're not as good as the restaurant ones. Not sure why...

Depending on the timing and the guests, we sometimes went to John Paul Jones' crypt?
I have no idea where Strong Ar is, but I bet it is very different today than when your mom lived there. The state is changing so much. Of course NWA is the part of the state that has changed the most. We don't even marry our cousins anymore and we keep our fridge in the house, not on the front porch. Most of us have teeth.

I will take a lump crab cake over lobster any day. Living in Texas, I have to fly to Baltimore a few times a year just to experience real crab cakes, steamed crabs. Although I do occasionally enjoy Maine lobster, I donít ever crave it.

That might be true for Maine lobster, but Florida harvests more spiny lobster than any other state.

It's a little southeast of Eldorado, about 10 miles north of the state line. I was there a year ago to scatter her ashes. When she lived there (1924-1942), the population was just over 1000, and the town had a little downtown area with active businesses, including her father's barber shop and my great-uncle's Lion gas station. Now, the population is just over 600, and most of the businesses are gone.

Heard of them. Never eaten them. But I've been out dining with a friend (who's also from Utah) who has ordered them. She loves them.

Here in coastal NC they're available at the fish counter of many groceries but I prefer to make them myself. We also have a local shrimper fleet so shrimp cakes are also on my to-do list.

The correct answer is: Deeeeeeeeelishus!
