I think that's is International Women's Day, tomorrow is National Crab Day! :)

Sorry, ladies! The world is a better place, thanks to you! Have a great day!
This sounds soo good. I like the idea of making our own curry powder. The book says grinding the spices just before use makes a big difference in the flavor.

Simple Crab Curry

2 TB. butter
1 TB. chopped green bell pepper
1 TB. mango chutney
1/2 tsp. curry powder (recipe below)
2 cups (1 lb.) crab meat
cooked rice

Melt the butter in a heavy skillet over low heat. Increase the heat and add the green pepper. Saute 5 minutes. Add the chutney, curry powder and the crab meat. Saute, stirring constantly for 3 minutes. Serve hot with either brown or white rice. Yield 4 servings.

Curry Powder
5 parts ground turmeric
4 parts ground coriander
3 parts ground cayenne
2 parts ground cumin
2 parts ground black pepper
1 part ground cloves
1 part ground ginger

I usually cut up my cooking magazines and just save the recipes I like. But, I have saved some of the real old ones. While looking through one of them today, I found this recipe. I don't remember if I made a copy of it back then, but I sure did today. lol I can't wait to make and post, so I am going to post it here now. It sure sounds like a good one. I know DH will think so, look at the first 2 ingredients. lol
