Movie of the week: True Romance
Clarence and Alabama are newlyweds who acquire an unexpected wedding present. Unknown to the blissfully happy couple, ruthless gangsters are on their tail, determined to reclaim their lost property.
This Quentin Tarantino scripted film uses the theme of ‘boy meets girl.’ Here, though, boy meets girl, boy kills girl’s pimp, couple takes pimp’s coke, and bad boys chase couple. And Elvis is their Guardian Angel….
This is such an action packed movie that is filled with good looking actors (Brad Pitt, Val Kilmer & Christian Slater) and at the same time it has such a romantic love story.

1 1/2 oz Vodka
1 1/2 oz Light rum
1 1/2 oz Creme de Cassis

Meal of the Week: True Maryland Crab Cakes
· 3 tablespoons pancake mix
· 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
· 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, or to taste
· 1 egg, beaten
· 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
· 1 pound cooked crabmeat, flaked
· 3 cups vegetable oil for frying
1. In a medium bowl, stir together the pancake mix, mustard, mayonnaise, egg and parsley until well blended. Fold in the crabmeat. Form into 3 inch patties.
2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. There should be enough oil to reach half way up the sides of the crab cakes. When the oil is hot, carefully place the patties in the pan. Fry until golden brown on each side, about 8 minutes per side. If patties are browning too fast, reduce the heat. Drain on paper towels, and serve immediately.
