Trade you for some MD crab cakes.
I have been thinking about splurging on some crab cakes from a place in Baltimore. They will ship them on dry ice anywhere in the US. They are not cheap, but I need to eat one again before I die.

Yep, that's expensive. When I worked at FedEx as a courier I used to deliver lots of frou-frou steaks and seafood and if a delivery failed it was pretty common for the vendor to tell you to take the package home and enjoy the product. Predictably, that lead to a lot of scams though.

Dungeness crab season just opened up up here but it gets mishandled so badly that we rarely buy it anymore. Better in a restaurant that knows how to do it right, and I almost never eat in restaurants these days, especially expensive ones.

Yep, it's a splurge and probably something we'll do next summer when it's actually crab season, though it sure would be great to have them for Christmas dinner. Around here it's not uncommon for a good restaurant meal for two to cost that much or more, so I'm kind of looking at it that way; like a special occasion splurge. My husband has never tasted blue crab and has never had actual Maryland-style crab cakes, so he's in for a treat

I've never had them in MD but I know enough to realize it's never quite the same with seafood any real distance away from the coast. I had some really great ones out on Hatteras though. The lobster rolls at the place in those pics probably came from a few hundred yards from my childhood house, but Long Island Sound gets too warm and the seasonal window was always tight, plus it was crazy polluted back then.

Dungeness crab doesn't need any embellishment IMO, not even butter or lemon. It's really really easy to wreck it.

What are you going to do with all that cheese?
I will eat it all by myself most likely since Im the cheesiest person in our house. I put cheese damn near on everything, I drew the line this morning though as I honestly considered putting the cheese on my pancakes. Im not sure how that would be but it doesnt seem like it would exactly be awful but may be considered in a moment of desperation munchies. Im sure its better than the time I was high as phuc and crammed a fist full of dry crackers in my mouth and chewed for 10 minutes and then spit out a massive wad of cracker paste.
