so last week i won 2 crab cakes, to be delivered to me at a time and place of my choice by the food critic and food section editor of our local paper.

date, time and locations were agreed to.

6/1/2011; 7:30 - 8:00 PM, local bar

at 8:10 i get a call, they will be late - 15 min

8:35 i leave - coincidence -
why call after you are late - should call as soon as you know you will be late ?
why not call and say you will not make the second time either ?

11:35 PM i get an e-mail at the office PC

Hi, Feck,



I came by at 8:35 to (local bar) . It was a very, very hard night for our family. And I apologize for making you wait. Thinking that you'd come back again, I left them with (waitstaff). They are there now refrigerated and good through Sunday.



It's been an upsetting night thinking you left without getting the promised goods.



Pam.

yeah, she boils shrimp cocktail shrimp for 10 mins, then runs them under cold water until they cool down.
at least she uses a court boullion for the boil. :eek:

what is this the 1950's ? :one:

?

boil the liquid, add the shrimp, turn it off, put a lid on it, wait 5 min, check to make sure they are opaque in the middle, cool in bowl of water in an ice or water bath.


her way, the shrimp are over cooked,and most of the flavor added from the liquid would get rinsed out if you cool them off in running water.


next week she'll be telling people to cook pork until it's at least 165 - 170 :wink:
