MyBargainBuddy lost a very special member last week. Diane passed away suddenly in her home at the age of 62. Doctors suspect heart attack or stroke.

Since the day she joined our forum, Diane was an active member. Even though she was on dial-up, she managed to rack up 58,368 posts over the last 2 years and 9 months. That's an everage of 58 posts per day! If you've ever visited our freebie forum, you've seen Diane in action!

I was shocked to hear this news and greatly saddened. Diane will be missed. I would like to honor her by featuring her in the spotlight once again.

If anyone is interested, in lieu of cards or flowers, her brother requested that gifts be made in memory of Diane Sivacek to the American Cancer Society. Diane's sister died from cancer several years ago and they were very close.

I'd like to thank Grams for letting us know. It is so nice that our members look out for one another. We have such a special group of people here.

Thanks Diane for you support while my mom has been going though Chemo with Breast Cancer.

Diane took the time to write me on Christmas Day to see how my mom was doing.... It meant a lot to me.

Thanks also for the great posts

You like seafood! You are retired! Then come on down for Mardi Gras. We have lots of seafood here.

Good Cajun seafood recipes: www.jfolse.com

I am not sure what seafood is easy to get in Virginia, but I remember having a crab dip in South Carolina (very bland to my Louisiana taste buds), so here is a crab recipe from the site. Rex is the main king of Mardi Gras.


Crab Cakes Rex
PREP TIME: 30 Minutes
SERVES: 8

COMMENT:
Normally in Bayou Country crab cakes are dense in texture due to the amount of breadcrumbs in the recipe. Personally, I appreciate a higher crabmeat content so I’ve cut back the breadcrumbs for a looser texture.

INGREDIENTS:

1 pound lump crabmeat
3 tbsps butter
1/2 cup onions, diced
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup red bell peppers, diced
1/4 cup garlic, diced
1 cup seasoned Italian breadcrumbs
1/4 cup green onions, minced
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 egg
2 tbsps parsley, minced
2 tsps Worcestershire sauce
2 tsps lemon juice
2 tbsps Old Bay seasoning
1 tsp Creole mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
hot sauce to taste
½ cup Italian breadcrumbs for dusting
¼ cup vegetable oil

METHOD:
Using your fingers, pick through crabmeat to remove any shell or cartilage. In a sauté pan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onions, celery, bell peppers and garlic. Sauté 3-5 minutes or until vegetables are wilted. Remove and allow to cool slightly. In a large mixing bowl, combine sautéed vegetables along with all remaining ingredients except crabmeat. Gently fold in crabmeat with your fingers, continually checking for shell or cartilage. Blend carefully into the breadcrumb mixture until all ingredients are well incorporated. Adjust seasonings if necessary. Gently form crab mixture into a 1" x 2 1/2" patty, dust lightly with breadcrumbs and place on a cookie sheet. Place in the refrigerator and chill for at least 1 hour. In a sauté pan, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, sauté crab cakes 2-3 minutes on each side, turning each cake over gently so they don't fall apart.

Place crab cake in the center of a dinner plate and top with white or red rémoulade sauce.

He left out the most important part- EAT!
