Will Crochet For Food...

Crab Au Gratin...I need to work on my food photography skills but believe me it was delicious!

Seriously!! My friend asked me to crochet a baby blanket & not knowing what to charge as I don't usually make too many items to sell, unless it's for a couple of charities I support, I was non-committal as to the fee & was suggesting that she make a donation to a charity, since I love to crochet & was already working out a pattern anyway. Well, she came up with a barter or gift of sorts, for my labor.

We live in the Gulf Coast region & she & her husband are avid fishermen. She offered me CRAB...cleaned & picked & ready to cook. Good Lord did she want the blanket done in cashmere or something?? I'm not worthy....WOW! I got the better end of this deal, I'll tell ya'. So tonight we're having Crab Au Gratin in all of it's fat & creamy glory. This stuff was sleeping in the Gulf not too long ago! YUM,YUM!!
