Living about as far as you can here in Siberia from an ocean, seafood is difficult to get. Yes, we have our own fish and crawdads, etc. but ocean stuff is hard to come by. My wife learned long ago to let the masses pay over $30 bucks a pound for King Crab Legs. Just wait until after the holidays and they will always have a "stems and pieces" sale. She scored today. $9.99 a lb. for big fat chunks. Heck, I always break up those 2 and a half foot long big ones anyhow to fit them in the kettle. Burp......we ate good tonight.

I wish someone would drop a few dozen pregnant Chesapeake Blue crabs in the marshes of Texas and Louisiana. We could enjoy pots of fresh caught steamed crabs all summer long here. That is one of the few things I miss about living in the DC area. Crabs, corn on the cob, beer... oh my! I feel a tingle running up my leg!
Crawdads from clean water taste much better than ones harvested from America's drain field, New Orleans.
Yep! We even eat the carp here. This area is the headwaters. 5 miles north of me is The divide. When you piss on a hill there, half goes to New Orleans and the other half goes out the St. Lawrence seaway. Can't get any cleaner than this!
