Happy Monday ya’ll. I know, I know, I’m not southern but we’ve been watching BBQ Pitmasters all Sunday afternoon so I felt like saying it. Kurt and I were being goofballs and kept talking with our southern accents all evening. We had fun. :) I’m so excited for spring to get here already, I can hardy wait. Kurt is already planning his next smoked BBQ party. I think we’re a bit ahead of ourselves considering that it snowed here on Saturday. Despite that I know it’s only a few weeks till March is over, after all Punxsutawney Phil predicted we’re getting an early spring. I hope that little critter is right.

I strongly recommend you try these Louisiana Crab Cakes. And you must make the Yogurt Dill Sauce to go along with it. Must! Whenever my supermarket has jumbo lump crab meat on sale, crab cakes instantaneously make menu headlines in our house. They always get devoured.

I wish I took  a picture of the yummy asparagus and shitake stir fry I made to go along with these beauties. Overall dinner was a smashing hit.

I hope you have a great week. Weekend is only five days away. :)
