This holiday season was another one filled with friends, family, and cookies! Sherry Tamone hosted another cookie cooking extravaganza and this was our haul:
cookies, good company, and wine!
She made several crab sugar cookies for us to decorate. I took advantage of some of the broken ones by making this Frankencrab:
"I'm a monster!"
He reminded me of all the crabs and lobsters I've seen with multiple claws where they should only have one. No one can really pinpoint why that happens, but I imagine it's some sort of crossed signaling that occurs during regeneration and molting.
this claw belongs to an edible crab (Cancer pagurus) found off of the UK -
normally their claws have a crushing strength of 90 lb/square inch,
so I wonder if this one has 180 lbs/square inch!?!?
