You've heard of Crab Cakes ...

You've heard of Crab Cakes, but what about Crab Cookies??


These crabs were made for a local golf event that had a crab and corn bake for the dinner. 

I had so much fun making these favors. I loved the crabby claws.

He is so fun. I think it looks like he is throwing his hands up and saying "Ok, I'm yummy. Eat me!"

(I love the crab cookies, cause they are the only crab I'm eating these days. Darn shellfish allergy.)

It was a fishy week. I also had another order for these little trout fish. These guys have been popular. 

This order included green and blue ones.

Here they are all wrapped up for the birthday party...

It's hard to tell from the pictures, but these fish are on the small side. For a little perspective, here are the fish next to the birthday cake cookie.

Topher is making us popovers for breakfast this morning. It smells so good in here! 

They are fun for our little girl to watch in the oven.

Mmmmmmmmm. Getting puffed and crusty and yummy.

We like them with fruit.

And powdered sugar of course!

Today I think we are going to use our lemon curd on them too! 

So this post is over. It's time to get lost in my popover.

Have a sweet day,

    We agree that they are not fish. We say that they are crustaceans. Crustaceans have slelhs on the outside. When they get to big there shell comes off and they grow a new one. This is called molting. Many animals molt when they grow. We saw daphnia molt in our classroom.Crabs have some things in common with fish, they are: breathe underwater, they both live in water, they both live in the sea, they both go in underwater grasses and plants to hide.Some differences: crabs don’t have fins and tails, fish don’t have claws and slelhs.Everyone in class made their own estimates as to how many crabs are in the picture.

    Crabs are not fish they are crustaceans. Crustceans have shlles on the outside. Some people like Erin are allergic to crustaceans. They have exoskeletons.We live in Maryland and we have lots of blue crabs that live in Chesapeake Bay.We can estimate how many crabs are in the picture. You can estimate how many crab legs there are.-MatthewYou can also estimate how many eyes there are-RyanBaila wonders if the crab population will increase.The things crabs have in common with fish: They both live underwater, they both swim, they both have gills, they both have babiesThey are different : Fish don’t have an exoskeleton or shell,There is a line of symmetry for a crab and probably a fish if you split right.Crabs are a renewable resource.You can tell the difference between a male and female crab by marking on their underside.
