How to say thank you. Hmmm.
In an unrelated story, I stop at Rainbow Foods in MN and am buying a little steak for my dinner when the butcher tells me it's the last day of their Snow Crab sale - one bunch for $3.99. I get that instead. While he's wrapping it up, he throws in a smaller extra bunch and then asks me if I'd like some broken ones. I say sure and picks up a huge heap of assorted legs and craws and throws them in. Wow, what am I going to do with all this crab?
Well, what I'm going to do is heat the grill to 400 degrees and put the legs on for 2 minutes a side, melt some butter, cook up some rice and invite my niece and her roommates over for a thank you dinner. (add some chicken, that original steak, slice up some tomatoes drizzled in Sesame Ginger dressing and some clams.)
Here's the score, Rainbow Foods wins because they get to get rid of some crab that they would've had to throw and makes a great impression on me, I win because I get a great way to thank my niece and her roommates, and my niece and friends win because the crab was really, really good.
Win, win, win.
Cook well, it's worth it.
