You want to guess what I’ve been making with these live blue crabs?

    Did you “pickle” the crabs in soysauce? I forgot the name of the fish but I always wanted to learn and try the taste. Congratulations on a beautiful and successful move for your daughter 🙂 I hour your husband tended to the garden while you were in NY so they wouldn’t dry up hehe

    • Yes, that’s called “ganjang gejang”. I also made spicy gejang. The recipes are coming soon. Well, actually my husband was the driver, and I was enjoying the ride, taking photos. Thanks to a relative who took care of the garden while we were gone. Hope you’re having a great summer. Thanks for coming by.

  4. Let me know when you are in Ann Arbor next to visit your daughter! We could have a glass of wine together, if you care…I have found your recipes so helpful!

  5. Ah, but we only got back around that time from a trip. Send me an email next time you get into town! Would be lovely to meet you.
