Alaskan King Crab with Linguini
and Roasted Garlic Sauce for two

2 lbs. of King Crab in the shell
(defrost and remove the meat-Pull out
the cartilage from the center of the legs
and cut the meat into bite size pieces)
1 lb. package of extra firm tofu and ½ of
a small butternut squash for the
vegetarian version

If using the vegetarian choice squeeze
out the liquid from the tofu and cut into
bite size pieces-peel the squash and
cut into the same size pieces.

2 whole heads of garlic
(take 4 cloves of garlic and finely mince
them-reserve with the shallots-roast the
rest of the garlic-see *)

8 oz bottle of clam juice or vegetable
stock for the vegetarian dish

1 cup of half and half

6 T. of sweet butter (butter with no salt)

1 t. chili flakes

1 red bell pepper diced ¼ inch.

2 large shallot s finely diced

1 lb. linguini cooked to the package
directions and drained
(cook to be done when the crab is)

2 T. sour cream or crème frache

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
to taste

Chopped parsley and more black pepper
as garnish to finish the dish

*to roast the garlic leave the peel on the
garlic and rub with olive oil then wrap in
aluminum foil and roast at 400 degrees
for 35 minutes or until soft and aromatic-
remove and cool then squeeze out the
roasted garlic and reserve. If there is
any oil in the aluminum foil use it with
the butter as the sauté for the dish.

Now let’s begin

For the vegetarian dish

Add the butternut squash with the shallots and sauté until soft then proceed the

This would be excellent with a wonderful German Mozel W ine or a glass of Bison
Brown Ale. Remember these dishes are from my heart for your stomach with love-
Always try what you think you can’t do and push your self to the limit-you may be
surprised at how great you really are-if only to your mother!!!!

So until the next time we meet and discuss the finer things in life and
love- be well.

And so it did on the poor people of Louisiana. Poor-I
wonder. I’m sure a lot of them are but with all the
mega funds that have poured into that state in the
name of HELp, I wonder just who has built a
*Palace* and how many barely have a roof. I can say
this because it’s just my opinion and in no way is
meant to slander anyone-but of course you know
who you are and so does God. I find it hard to
understand when devastation occurs and people
have lost all that matters to them and they know it
will happen in the same place again and again they
still go back and rebuild. Now that’s alright if you do
it with you own money, but when you cry poor me-
help me-and we do because we are taught to help-
then I think we should draw the line. The governor
of that state had to tell these people that if they
didn’t evacuate they would go to jail-and anyone
who stay ed behind would not be rescued later.  Are
they STUPID?!? If that happened to me even once    
I’d be out of there. The same goes for the people in

California with mud slides and their houses falling
into the ocean. Is this a game they play with the
lord-catch me if you can?  Common Sense-is that a
foreign idea?  I see people, hundreds every day, but
very few have much in the way of common sense. I
don’t know how we are going to do it but we must
become a society of people that think for ourselves
and not just follow the pack. That also goes for
what we read in the paper. Just because the liberal
rags write about how good or bad a thing is doesn't
mean you should jump on the bandwagon.
Investigate and make your own decisions and have
the strength to stand by them. I won’t go into
politics and how shocked and disturbed I am with
this election year's choices but I will say that “a
strong wind comes before a great fall”. Make sure
you choose the man because you truly believe he is
the best for our country. Make sure he understands
our military and war because
he has been there.
Experience-the ones that come from a life long lived
is important to our well being. With age comes past
mistakes and the ability to learn from them. Youth
has time in front of them to make those mistakes.
Do we want to pay the price for that education or
would we rather build on a sound foundation? You
must make your own choice! God Bless and take

pity on us in our time of darkness and show us to
the light-enough of this
let’s cook--------
