This massive beast of a sandwich is a 1/4 lb crab cake served on a fried ramen bun with bacon, spinach and Sriracha. The recpie below serves two.
Servings: 2 (with a few crab cakes left over)
4 slices of thick cut bacon
6 Leaves Baby Spinach
For the ramen buns
2 packages of ramen
For the crab cakes
2 slices dried bread, crusts removed
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Parsley Flakes
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 pound lump crabmeat
Prepare two packages of ramen per the instructions on the packet. After it’s cooked let it sit for five minutes, strain out the broth and add it two a bowl. Add a beaten egg and form into patties per the instructions on this video. Chill the uncooked patties in the fridge.
When the bacon is done remove it from the pan…important: keep the grease! Form four large crabcake patties and fry ‘em up. Then (using the same bacon greese) cook the ramen buns. Again refer to this video for more info.
Assemble the kraken burgers in this order: bottom bun, crabcake, bacon, spinach, sriracha, top bun. Before taking your first bite be sure to speak these words…
RELEASE THE KRAKEN!
These two are my first metal models. The detail superior to plastic. I’m back on board with the wet palette painting method, applying thinner coats in an effort to avoid paint blobs.
The Pyg Keg Carrier was a blast to paint. I borked up Borka’s elbow when assembling him.

I will update this post with more pics as I progress.
Here is a pic from my first game of Hordes. I shot this two turns before killing my opponent’s caster.
Here is my second mini painting project…a Trollbloods Dire Troll Mauler. I’ll post up another pic when the beast is complete.
Update: Added two more pics of the completed mauler.
If you are ever in the peculiar position of having to convert a canvas tag into an image, post it via AJAX to a CFC and then generate a PDF then I have your solution.
UPDATE: Scroll down to the bottom of the code for a bonus SVG-to-Canvas-to-PNG conversion.

After screwing around with Zurb Foundation 4 for a time I have to say that it is not without it’s quirks. One of them is not being able to consistently write to a checkbox. Here is my hacky work-around. Pardon the ‘this’ scope…this method is part of a utility object that I created in an effort to handle all of Foundation 4′s quirks in one place. The benefit of delegating responsibility in this manner is that when/if I upgrade the code base to Foundation 5 (or perhaps Twitter Bootstrap) I will only have to change one object.
Supposedly this is fixed in Foundation 5.
