When I was a little girl living in Germany, my mother used to get frozen crab cakes. I loved them. A few years ago, I found a package of Zatarain’s crab cake mix, and I made it with imitation crab. Yup, you heard me right – imitation crab.
Here’s my thoughts on imitation crab. What is imitation crab? Imitation crab is made from surimi, a concoction of fish, usually pollock, a binder and flavoring. I never think of imitation crab as crab, I think of it as Krab.

Spane’s First Communion was on Sunday, May 15, 2011 at the 9:30am Mass at Holy Family Catholic Community Church in Glendale, California.
When I had Spane on November 21, 2003, I started thinking about what his First Holy Communion was going to be like. When he was Baptized at Holy Family Catholic Community Church on May 17, 2007, I started counting down the days. There were 1460 days, or 3 years, 11 months, 29 days until his First Holy Communion. In case you wondered, yes, I am counting down the days until his Confirmation, which should be about 2192 days, about 6 years from now.
