The Crab Boil
One afternoon my Uncle Mark and I went to Kenny’s Seafood to pick up live crabs. When we were coming home our truck broke down. We waited and waited and waited for my Uncle Ed to tug us home. When we got home we boiled the crabs. We put spices like red pepper, salt, lemon, onion, and garlic in a big pot. Then we let it boil. When it was boiling we put the live crabs in. Then we put corn, potatoes, sausage, and mushrooms in the pot. After they were done we took them out and we ate them. My family and friends came. We ate 2 hampers of crabs, which is about 100 crabs. I like to eat the claws. I like the claws because it is easy to crack the shell and take the meat out and eat it. The crabs were spicy and delicious. I enjoyed eating the crabs and learning how to cook them.
