With the family here for Thanksgiving, Howard made his famous remoulade sauce for crab cakes. I wanted to make sure to give you the recipe! He used the canned lump crab meat from Costco.
Also, this week’s Five Faves is all about entertainment…movies and such (since we did a lot of movie watching)! Be sure to catch Annie’s and Cindy’s favorite things this week with links at the end of the post,
1. Fire Pit Heaven – Yukon Solo
Our friend, Carlos got an early Christmas present from his wife Dorothy….and he loves it! It was on a major Black Friday sale…I hope it still is if you are interested.
2. The Best Rémoulade Sauce For Crab Cakes
What REALLY makes Howard’s dish special, is the best remoulade sauce for crab cakes that’s he’s been making for around 20 years! You will love it.
Howard grew up on the Chesapeake Bay so crab cakes are “near and dear” to him. His favorite fried then broiled until browned crab cake recipe is:
The Rémoulade sauce for crab cakes is from the Chesapeake Bay Cookbook by John Shields. It’s a French mayonnaise sauce with capers, mustard, and herbs.
Look at the splatters on Howard’s book. I may buy him the updated version for Christmas.

3. A Book To Read or Listen To: “Sisters Of The Great War“
This was an interesting book inspired by real women. It tells the story of two unconventional American sisters who volunteer at the front during World War I.
4. What to Watch on Television
Red Notice on Netflix
We watched Red Notice on Thanksgiving Day and everyone liked it (even though the critics didn’t).
“An FBI profiler pursuing the world’s most wanted art thief becomes his reluctant partner in crime to catch an elusive crook who’s always one step ahead.”
While some of the guys watched football, all the girls and even a couple of the boys enjoyed “The Holiday” movie. Even though I’ve seen it about 100 times! Please tell me you have seen it. We saw it on Netflix.
“Dumped and depressed, English rose Iris agrees to swap homes with similarly unlucky in love Californian Amanda for a much-needed break. Iris finds herself in a palatial Hollywood mansion while Amanda navigates the lanes of a picture-perfect English village. Soon enough, both lovelorn ladies bump into local lads perfect for a romantic pick-me-up.”
5. What To Watch At The Movies : “House of Gucci”
“House of Gucci” may not be for everyone, but my daughter and I enjoyed it. The fashion, city scenes, and the fact that it’s a true story make it all the more interesting.
“When Patrizia Reggiani (played by Lady Gaga), an outsider from humble beginnings, marries into the Gucci family, her unbridled ambition begins to unravel the family legacy and triggers a reckless spiral of betrayal, decadence, revenge — and ultimately murder.”
