“oats are groats and groats are oats…they’re the same
oats and groats they float your boats…down the drain
an ode to oats with notes of groats…don’t complain”
Say hello to my little friend. I picked up this Epiphone four-string banjo from the fine folk at Shamrock Music Shoppe. I’m currently teaching myself how to play “Cripple Creek”, “Old Joe Clark” and “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”.
I’m working my way through some great iOS training at the moment (more on that in a future post). I’ve been at it for several hours now…perhaps it’s time to take a break and play some Magic: The Gathering.
A Nickle-less Cage
My son and I created this horrible, horrible pun using Yakit Kids for iPhone, etc.
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!
