No matter how much a long work week might make me feel, on a pleasant August evening in Maryland, feeling crabby can take on a whole new meaning.

Gotta love a food that you have to eat with a hammer, right? Also the hammer is just resting there. I do know how to work crabs. No worries 😉

Also after one eats steamed crabs, one may find they smell rather crabby also.

Just sayin’ 🦀

Ham and cheese… pizza?

After I made the cordon bleu, I had leftover ham and Swiss cheese. Which for many people would mean delicious sandwiches in their future. But I’m not much for sandwiches, or cold foods in general (salads notwithstanding).*

So what to do?

Well, I have pizza crust. I can make pizza sauce.

What if I put the ham and some of the swiss onto the pizza, along with onions and peppers and pepperoni and mozzarella?

Outcome: Success!


* I would eat ham and cheese, warm on a crusty toasted baguette or as a panini on focaccia or ciabatta bread. But I didn’t have types of bread that would make those viable. So… pizza. Basically, turning it into hot food was the secret.
