The Crab Night Boogie

A little retro boogie on the radio tonight as we head up the peninsula to check out 99 Ranch, a Chinese grocery wonderland. San Francisco is an Asian culture paradise, so amazing little groceries like this are peppered around us. This my first foray.

The boys and I are playing a new game we invented: Guess That Instrument. Reeds are the hardest ones for them to pinpoint, clarinet bleeds into sax and even oboe can be tricky to single out in the reedy tangle.

We are having steamed crabs and Chinese lacquered duck for dinner, melted butter, California lemons and on the side steamed asparagus. Might have to dig some boogie woogie up on Pandora to listen to while we crack crab.

Speaking of which....I don't think we have cracking implements. Oops.

  1. So, did you think of an inventive way to crack them open?
