A friend recently pointed out I use crab cakes like hats. I took this to mean that I am awesome and can accessorize. And it probably also means that I still have trouble calling something "dinner" unless there's some sort of meat involved; even if that "meat" is a Trader Joe's frozen crab cake I keep in my freezer at all times.
I am a sucker for crab cakes. And like a hat, I think a crab cake really dresses up a meal. Especially noodles. Here, I have soba noodles with napa cabbage, carrots, green onions, ginger and garlic. I made a quick peanut sauce with peanut butter, soy sauce and chili powder. It was easy and fast. But that crab cake sure made it look fancy.
Get yourself a square plate, and you can charge $16 for this meal. I was kind enough to feed the husband at no charge, although he did pay with his time by doing the dishes. A total deal.
