    I'm going to be picky here. First off, it looks delicious. I want some. But, and here's picky, a plastic spoon?

          Mr Hoffman, you are not in Mortons, you are in a BBQ joint, I wouldn't insult a Roadfooder with a metal spoon, fork & knife, metal, 4 for a dollar at Wal Mart, I do, but a throwaway spoon that gets the soup to your gub, is the way to go!

            Greymo, being a member of our Hall of Fame here, is the reason for the Sterling Silver, a honor bestowed on only a chosen few! BTW, where is the last spoon you had?

              At Mortons I want a cigar after my meal. With my meal I want a spoon that won't break. How come a a BBQ joint (your words) has crockery ramekins?

                          I'd pick soup over the two choices, Marlene. That cream of crab soup looks sooo good CTW!

                            Recipe, since I'm not particularly afraid of anyone opening up a store close by or if someone did, GREAT, welcome! Mind you I'll give the ingredients not the quantities as I make about 30 quarts at a time.
                            celery
                            carrot
                            green pepper
                            yellow pepper
                            scallions
                            all the above put into a Vita Mixer and liquidfied
                            in the pot it goes along with:
                            Crisp bacon, that been made to very small bits in a blender
                            nutmeg
                            whole cream
                            Old Bay
                            real butter
                            Creme Sherry
                            Claw Crab, completely picked by us, NO SHELL ALLOWED
                            Jumbo Lump Crab...no pasturized crab allowed, and being a Marylander, Bay crab, thanks.
                            The Crab goes in last,
                            simmer, never boil, as you would break the Cream
                            Edit. I forgot, I add a Lobster Base during the simmer, I buy it from an outfit in Fla.

                              Yeah, cream of crab ice cream doesn't sound quite so appealing.
                               
                              Just put mine in a big coffee mug and I won't need to worry about the spoon.

                                looks good - crab chunks on spoon - well done.
                                 
                                for final presentation and color, I'd sprinkle a pinch of old bay on top. You are, afterall in Maryland.

                                  Scorereader,  you could have a really  great outing  by  going to a  corn maze  near  Chubby's  and then going on there to eat.  You  son would  love it.

                                    Indeed, Crumland Farms has a huge one and a bunch of other stuff for kids of all ages, it sits right on 15 about 18 miles south of me.

                                      I have Old Bay in the soup already, I dont want to make it too salty.

                                        If you'll serve it in that ramekin, I'll brown bag my own spoon!

                                          If there's that much crab in each spoonful, that's some crabby crab soup. Looks really good.

                                            If I send you a jar, could you fill it and send it to me? Now, why did I move to Texas in 1963????????

                                              I'm going to make that one of these days for sure!
                                               
                                              Is the lobster base a liquid or paste?   I need to know these things!
                                               
                                              THANKS!

                                                  chewingthefat - save pinch of old bay per bowl, and put it at the end. I'm just saying, a little color. Or, a pinch of paprika? won't add salt, but would would add color.
                                                   
                                                  BTW - greymo and ctf, good idea on doing a corn maze and chubby's stop. Maybe some apple picking too, up there. Maybe Oct 9 - I might actually be in town that weekend (this is marching band season afterall, so most weekends I'm out of town - last weekend I was in CT). Although, I won't know what the heck to get...too many choices! that's a good problem to have, I suppose.

                                                    By the time  you get finished with everything at the corn maze, and  your son takes the wagon ride to  pick out a  pumpkin,  he will be too tired and  hungry  to  pick  apples.  BUT,  there  are two  apple farms  on the same route  with  great apples that you can buy!
