Spicy Crab Pasta

We have had a busy month! We went to Texas for the last 2 weeks of October to visit family and also for me to do my cabi shows! It was so much fun introducing Diane to all of the people who love her. She was in heaven with all of the attention. Since we have been home, it has been an adjustment for both of us to not have all the help we got used to. Next week our family comes here for Thanksgiving, yay!
Diane and her cousin Molly! One day soon they are going to have so much fun playing together.
With her Auntie Mellie!

 Meeting her Grandad, "Pops" for the first time!
 Here great grandad, "Doo-Dad," even came in town to join in on the fun!
Uncle Anson was so happy to meet her too!
 She is so lucky to have her great-grand parents to love on her.
More picture updates to come.... I have so many blog articles to write, but no time to write them. Hopefully, I will get another one up soon. This recipe was from BEFORE Diane was born! Jeffrey loved it! It was very easy and refreshing. The hardest part is finding the crab meat. 

Spicy Crab Pasta
1/2 pound spaghetti
2 Tbsp Olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
2 Fresno peppers, chopped fine (I didn't find fresno so I used Serrano, 2 is plenty, they are super spicy)
2 cloves garlic
1 cup dry white wine
1/2 pound jumbo lump crab meat, (I found a jar of fresh crab meat in my meat section)
2 Tbsp flat parsley
1 Tbsp fresh dill
1 Tbsp fresh mint
zest of 1 lemon

Cook pasta until al dente. 

Mince garlic and dice peppers (remove seeds from peppers).
Melt butter and oil in a skillet. Add peppers and garlic and cook until fragrant.
Add wine to the pan and cook until reduced by half.
Add crab meat and cook until heated through (1 minute).
Chop up fresh herbs. 
Add pasta, lemon zest and herbs to the pan. Turn off heat and toss to coat.
Serve with a drizzle of oil, fresh herbs and a slice of lemon!
