A girl cannot live off pudding alone.....

 ...even though I have been the last few days. Yes, I'm the genius who has her wisdom teeth removed right before Christmas.  And naturally what have I been doing other than watching copious amounts of Dexter, but catching up on all my favorite food blogs, magazines and cookbooks? Oh right, that is what I've been doing.

Um, hello, hungry dummy darling. This is what a girl will do when a diet of mashed potatoes and tapioca pudding is no longer cutting it. She gets creative, and a little kooky.

So, without further ado, here is my contribution to Christmas Dinner: Kristmas Krab Krudites, Kinda.

The goods*:
leftover mashed potatoes
chopped onion
1 egg
*all portions are based on the volume of potatoes....if you had say, 5lbs of mashed potatoes, you would probably want to use two eggs. Just keep adding flour until you have a slightly stiff batter. 

mix, mix, mix

"Flip n Fry" in olive oil

Krab salad (mine is a mix of krab, fine chopped green pepper, salt, black pepper, dill, sugar, mayo and Grey Poupon)

Top the potato pancakes with the krab salad and a drizzle of sriracha sauce, to "kick" it up a little.

Both yummy and gum friendly! 

You could easily make these into a true appetizer, and therefore krazy krudites, by making the potato pancakes bite sized.  Merry Christmas.

Love to all,
~the, "yes, I know crudites are raw veggies, but I can't have crunchy food right now so I'll call them what I want" gal, Jess

You poor thing! Feel better soon. Eat some grits! With cheese, and bacon! (But no sharp crumbly bits.)

Ok- this is ridiculous. Your pudding blog turned into a gourmet crab salad/potato pancake blog? Will you marry me? xoxo

Only you could come with something this tasty looking while unable to chew.
