Tuesday, February 4th
Chris took us out on his boat today, to a hike along an abandoned railroad track through the swampy, wild pig infested lowlands.
For dinner, Kristin grilled up an appetizer – the oyster mushroom I’d found in the woods, with some Wax Mrytle leaves she’d picked on our hike.
Then Chris made us crab legs on the grill – and taught us the most effective ways to open up and devour each segmented bit of the giant delicious sea bugs.
We ate all of them up, and then made a second batch.
Food you have to work for each bite of is more satisfying somehow … as is anything drenched in melted butter.
We went to bed tired, full, happy, and new fans of crab legs.
