Crabcake

Here you see my 2nd crabcake meal of our trip to DC. Why is it impossible to find a decent crabcake in New England? Just say NO to bell pepper, celery, leafy herbs, and other extraneous ingredients! Crabcake should be crabmeat, cracker meal, mayonnaise, and from none to a ton of Old Bay seasoning (depending on what you’re going for), Fried in butter, please.

Ten years ago today, we moved into our new house.

We’ve made a few changes along the way to truly make it ours, but the essence of it is still the same 1890 folk Victorian that we admired ten years ago.
