what I gave my Valentine...

No, not chocolate.

Nope, not oysters.

No, not even a slap-up meal of prime steak.

None of those.

Give up?

OK, then - it was...

... crabs.

Heh.

NO! Not those crabs. (How could you even begin to think that?)

These...

dressed crab 1

dressed crab 2

Sadly, I can't claim to have prepared the crabs myself, but I did at least put them on the plate and make the parsley and lemon dressing to go with them.

And yes, they were very much appreciated. ;)
