ABOUT THOSE CRAB CAKES

The crab cake industry is taking over. Everytime I click on Microsoft start, where there are "news" articles, there are at least a dozen crab cake pieces. For the record, I do not own a crab cake, have not recently eaten one or expressed an interest in doing so, have never looked up a recipe for crab cakes, and can't even remember the last time I touched one of the damned things.

You know, Microsoft, I would far rather see cute kitten pictures.
Crab cakes are hardly a substitute for "miao miao".

From Wikipedia:
A crab cake is a variety of fishcake that is popular in the United States. It is composed of crab meat and various other ingredients, such as bread crumbs, mayonnaise, mustard (typically prepared mustard, but sometimes mustard powder), eggs, and seasonings. The cake is then sautéed, baked, grilled, deep fried, or broiled. Crab cakes are traditionally associated with the area surrounding the Chesapeake Bay, in particular the states of Maryland and Virginia. Although the earliest use of the term "crab cake" is commonly believed to date to Crosby Gaige's 1939 publication New York World's Fair Cook Book in which they are described as "Baltimore crab cakes," earlier usages can be found such as in Thomas J. Murrey's book Cookery with a Chafing Dish published in 1891. Crab cakes are particularly popular along the coast of the Mid-Atlantic and South Atlantic states, where the crabbing industry thrives.
End cite.

News and kitten pictures must be really slow if you're filling up on crab cakes.




By the way: I live in San Francisco, California, NOT in the blasted Mid-Atlantic and South Atlantic states of the US. We know what to do with crab here. And we enjoy cracking the beast and sucking out the delicious little bits in crannies, we have no need to turn it into a greasy cat food patty.
Did some frozen suburban teevee kibble company bribe y'all?
I am now more likely than ever to not eat crab cakes.
