Crabmeat Salad Recipe - Quick and Easy!

As my contribution to the Christmas spirit going on in the blogging community I thought I would share my crabmeat salad recipe. A friend gave it to me a long time ago and a friend gave it to her. I tweaked it and made it my own. It's really simple and so delicious. Perfect for making, and actually much better if you can make the day before so it is good and cold.

Here goes:
1/2 lb. crabmeat
1 onion
1 cucumber (I remove seeds but you don't have to)
4 ounces noodles
1 package dry original buttermilk ranch dressing
1 cup buttermilk
8 ounces sour cream
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1 teaspoon of salt

Chop up and mix first 3 ingredients in large bowl. While chopping you can cook the noodles per directions. Drain and add to first mixture when done.

In a mixing bowl add the additional ingredients and mix on low until smooth and creamy. You can buy buttermilk ranch dressing and use milk instead of the buttermilk but it really is better if you just get the buttermilk and do it the right way but I have been rushed and used the other before and it's good, just not as creamy. Besides the left over buttermilk is excellent with popcorn! For you city girls, you get a glass and put a few kernels in at a time and eat with a spoon...yummy! You'll love it but it is a bit sour so make sure your popcorn has salt and not that air popped crap :o)

Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients and stir with a large spoon and there you go. Stir a couple times while cooling. I usually make it, put it in the fridge, stir it before I go to bed, stir in the morn and then right before serving. It will need to be refrigerated to cool and is great served with club crackers or your personal favorite. To serve a crowd you'll need to double the recipe. I have found making it over the years that I usually add more crabmeat since I love it so. Make it once and then tweak it yourself. I've only gotten rave compliments!!

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Dreaming of the Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ok, so last night I had a dream that I was standing on the roof watching the Red Hot Chili Peppers play "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie" and I was featured in the video. I was looking great in a cute outfit with some type of hat and having a ball! lol The next thing I know I'm running through the jungle looking worse for wear with a dinosaur chasing me.  We watched an episode of Terra Nova and then Jurassic Park III was on so I know why I was dreaming of dinosaurs but where did the Red Hot Chili Peppers come from? I was so excited I woke up and had to pee!

How cool can you get?
I love a man that cooks! Although Flea scares me a bit!
Now this is a fashion statement if I ever saw one.

Saturday was date night!

♥ Dress:  Modcloth ♥ Sweater:  Ralph Lauren ♥ Booties: Modcloth-boots
On Saturday morning snoozing late was a must after all that booze on Friday night. After finally getting up I was still tired and since my favorite show recorded the night before I wanted to watch it while I tried to wake up. I absolutely love Haven! Although it's just one more reason to stay out of Maine :o) Art got up early and went to breakfast with his brothers and washed the car so I had the house to myself. If I wanted to watch tv in the morning, why not? I mean I was going to be another year older the next day so I figured I could do whatever I wanted. Although not productive I didn't have to wonder what strange occurrences were happening in that strange little town. I did finally get up and do a bit of housework since my family were coming over the next day for cake but I only gave it a lick and a promise. Before I knew it it was time to get ready. I bought my dress from Modcloth when they had the …
