I ate the eggs, and tried the guts!

I think sometimes food can be a mighty big adventure! And since having an adventure was one of my new year goals… I can say I had a teeny tiny adventure tonight!
Blue Crab Blog

I ate okay TRIED Manila Blue Crab tonight! It is a crab from the Philippines that is kind of small so it has VERY little meat, leaving room for it’s slimy guts and giant, bright orange egg sacs. Yes, I tried and egg sac, and taste tested the guts, ALL while my “sissy” Jessica was telling me I wouldn’t like it… well, to be 100% honest, it wasn’t too bad… it was the thought of what I was eating that made me gag (as they sat laughing at me!). I would try it again… give me some time, but I really would try it again. I also ate the meat which I surprisingly enjoyed. So now I can cross Manila Blue Crab off my culinary bucket list. And if you want proof that I ate it, here it is:

I DID IT!!!!
I DID IT!!!!

And here is the little guy looking at me while I ate pansit with Chinese Sausage, rice, watermelon, and Sinigang (a sour soup…):

P.S.S. and Yes that is the Seahawks WINNING in the background!

I am a conservative, slightly old-fashioned crazy girl. I love to read, write, sew, scrapbook, cook, bake, do crafts, enjoy nature, take my car off-roading, ride my bike, and just stay busy. I sometimes say I want a lazy day BUT I hate not having anything to do which means I frequently stretch myself too thin. I am the Life Enrichment Director at an assisted living facility. I love being around the elderly population. They are such amazing people who have so much to offer and teach. I also love the little guys too... I love being around kids, especially my nieces and nephews! In December of 2019 I was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation that quite literally may have been a life changing diagnosis. I went from feeling like I was crazy. To maybe having answers.
