csa, and poor man's crab cakes

This week's CSA share is another yummy one! Red potatoes made an appearance - love those! And the snap peas continue - a nice benefit of the cooler than normal weather we've been having. We'll be using some of the summer squash to make Poor Man's Crab Cakes (recipe courtesy of Meadow's Mirth farm). We made them a couple times last year - very tasty!!

Poor Man’s Crab Cakes

2 Cups grated Zucchini (or other summer squash)
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
1 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. old Bay Seasoning

Combine ingredients. Shape into cakes. Saute or fry in small amount of oil until golden brown.

I'm going to try this....maybe tonight since I have all the ingredients.

I can't eat crab....so I'm happy that these don't have any!!

Snap peas are one of my favs - great as part of a meal, yes, but also just right for munching through the day :-)

Hope you enjoy the crab-free crab cakes if you make them!! They were one of my husband's favorite new recipes that we tried last year!

We've been getting snap peas almost every time we stop at a farmers' market - seems you can never have too many!

The funny thing is, crab and lobster are so cheap now, and squash is a bit rarer (running late with the rainy June) -- I saw that Seaport Fish has lobster chix for $3.99 a pound! We might have to evolve the title of the recipe!

Hi Sara! When lobster and crab are easier to come by then squash, you know it's definitely been a crazy summer in New England!!!
