Total Colour asked that we post ourselves on our avatars for a few days so that she could put faces to names..
AND I decided to come back and share my crab experience now, rather than later.
Last night was my last night kid-free and I wanted to go eat crab legs somewhere that normally we cant because paying for five people is too expensive. SO, told my hubby lets go to joe's crab shack. Then I thought about it ALLLLLLLLLLL day while working and was craving them so so much.
Well, my husband is a butt-head and he took too long to meet me at my moms. It was already after seven when he got there. THEN, his daughter called and was in Ann Arbor and nobody had fed his Mom yet- so we had to go get her some dinner and take it to her before we went to eat. I threw a fit, its too late, she wont eat this late, cant believe nobody remembered to take her any dinner. Well, I was right- and she didnt want to eat, so we had to hang out there and kind of 'join her' so she would. By the time we left, it was eight o clock. Too late to go to Joes- so we went to the golf course near by that has crab legs.
When my crab came, the shells were bendy- like they had been overcooked. The ends were mushy- like they had sat in the water too long. Busted the biggest one open, dipped it in the melted butter...and hmmm...doesnt taste good. Now, being a little slow...I took the remainder of the leg, dipped it in the butter...and nope, it doesnt taste good. It kind of burns my mouth..and I smell the shell. Burns my nose.
I pick up another leg...mushy end. Smells like ammonia.
Husband says, "did they soak these in bleach?"
I broke open a second leg, take a piece...again, MASK it in butter...and take a huge bite..
Hubby tells the waitress to take our plates back to the cook and tell him to take a big bite for himself. (i love when he tells them that at restruants. Whenever we complain, waitstaff love to tell us the cook says its normal, or blahblahblah..so now he just says, "Tell the cook to taste it". )
Waitress comes back to apologize, tells us the crab is rotten, and they dont have any more- that was the last of it.
They will take it off our bill.
No I dont want anything else to eat- and NO I dont want anything else to drink.
Im waiting for the botulism, salmonella, heebyjeebies to hit.
