We have been trying to have stay at home “date night” a few times a week. This enables us to have uninterrupted conversation, and some much needed us time,(after certain little people go to bed) without spending ridiculous amounts of money on meals that are just mediocre.
I have been craving grilled corn on the cob since Rufus’ Food and Spirits Guide posted this wonderful how – to.
If you have not yet been to this wonderful blog, full of fantastic recipes for both food and drink, I highly recommend that you do. This husband and wife blogging powerhouse offer an array of tantalizing recipes that they capture with amazing photographs.
Tonight’s date night seemed like the perfect time to satisfy the corn craving.
And what better to go with grilled corn than crab cakes, baseball on the radio, cold beer and eating under the stars.
( You can use fresh or canned crab – I used canned tonight because the store did not have any fresh crab – sigh)
Ingredients – yield 6
4 (6oz) cans crab meat
1 yellow bell pepper, finely diced
1 eggs slightly beaten
1 Tablespoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
juice from half lemon
1 Tablespoon spicy brown mustard
2 Tablespoons mayo (I use olive oil mayonnaise)
