It is crab time in Northern California. The crab fishing season officially started, after a short delay, last week and now the shops are crawling with crabs.
I love crab. This morning I bought a cooked one at Lucky’s, the local supermarket, cooked, for $3.99 a pound. I bought another, alive, for $2.99 a pound this afternoon, post terrible lunch, at incredible Chinese supermarket on Irvine, see previous entry: https://spikekalashnikov.wordpress.com/2010/09/19/a-different-sort-of-supermarket/
Tonight we eat, steamed Dungeness crab, steamed baby artichokes, grated brussel sprout salad. Yum!
