A great meal and wonderful day off.

My husband asked me to change my day off from Wednesday to Thursday. He also took Thursday off. I asked him what he had planned and he kept saying don't worry about it. So I didn't. However I was wondering what he had planned. After a while i decided that it was nothing.

Wednesday after work we went to Sam's Club. I love warehouse shopping and the fact that everything is package with store owners or restaurant owners stocking needs in mind, it is bulk shopping for us.

What did we buy? Colossal King Crab legs! They were huge and cost 12.00 a pound. One bag has two legs in it and cost 25.00 the second one 3 1/2 legs cost 35.00. I have never seen crab legs this big before. I decided that these must be the crabs that the show Deadliest Catch catches.

Thursday Todd and I cooked them together. He put too much water in the pot but I correct that and explained way. The we made a giant salad with shrimp in it and then dinner was done.

It was great! Because the crab was so large you did not have to keep breaking shell to get to the meat. It was a great meal and a wonderful evening together.
