Maryland is for Crabs

I admit it. I love steamed crabs. I actually love anything crab. Which is perhaps why I can't decide which of the 5 crab frameweights is my favorite.

Since I love crabs, Old Bay Seasoning is a very important part of my world. I grew up on this stuff. If it's not available in your part of the world you really need to find some. It's a mixture of spices (maybe a little too much salt to be healthy) but boy is it good on steamed crabs, steamed shrimp, crab cakes you get the idea.

It comes packaged in a metal can just like pepper - so it's square.

Now, imagine that grown up and stitchpainted on 13ct canvas. What could make a cuter summer purse for going to picnics and just hanging around.

So is Louisiana - and I have a daughter-in-law from Baton Rouge (they are in Tallahassee now). I need to do this for her. My son swears all she knows how to cook is etouffe' The "crab boil" box is also rather decorative. In Austin, I do Blue Bell Ice Cream cartons for needlepointers.
