Tomorrow I plan on making myself Tailgate Crab Cakes that I got off the Foodnetwork this summer.

Tailgate Crab Cakes
6 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/3 cup chopped green bell peppers
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
Fresh ground black pepper
1 cup green onions
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon Cajun choice seasoning
3 eggs
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound real or imitation crab meat
2/3 cups flour
1/4 cup water

Heat 1/2 of oil over high heat. Saute onions, bell peppers, salt, white pepper and about 15 turns of fresh ground black pepper for about a minute. Add green onions, garlic, Cajun choice seasoning and cook for another minute. Remove and put in bowl. Cool mixture for a few minutes. Stir in 2 eggs, Dijon mustard, 1/4 cup of bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Then add crab meat depending on size of crabcake. Gently mix the mixture and form into crab cakes. First dip both sides in flour, then in egg/water (egg and 1/4 cup water whisked together). Cover in bread crumbs and fry about 2 minutes on each side over medium heat.

I made these this summer at my party since I had 2 party attendees come that didn't eat other forms of meat. They were SO good! I only use real crab meat though.

Out for fish and chips tonight. Thinking of something warm and comforting for dinner tomorrow...maybe....

Autumn Beef Barley dinner

3 Tbls oil
2# beef cut into 1" cubes
2 onions diced ( I usually use one)
6 c water
1/2 c med. barley
1 tsp oregano leaves
2 10oz pkg brussel sprouts
2 med toatoes cut into wedges

In skillet over medhigh heat, heat oil, cook beef till brown on all sides and remove to 4 qt casserole. In drippings in skillet, cook onion till tender, stirring occassionally. Add water. Over high heat, heat to boiling, stirring to loosen brown bits. Pour onion mix over beef in casserole dish, stir in barley, oregano, salt and pepper to taste Cover and bake in 350 oven 1 1/2 hr, stirring occasionally. Stir in brussell sprouts, bake for additional 30 minutes, then add tomato wedges and continue baking additional 10 minutes or rill meat and vegies are fork tender.

I usually make this on the stove top in large pot with a bit more liquid for a hearty soup. serve with bread or rolls for a full meal.

I plan on making Chicken Ala King tomorrow hopefully. I haven't had this in forever and saw the recipe in a Church Suppers cookbook I was looking through tonight. I mailed some broth with some thighs tonight for dh who is very sick and dehydrated so it will be a good use for them tomorrow.

OOPS, I made the broth, I didn't mail it! That's what I get for trying to post and watch Wolfgang Puck on HSN at the same time! Have a great night everyone!
