    tonight Edward is getting the same in the supplement and dry dish.
    in the fresh dish he is getting:

    Bananna, grated green bell pepper, mysis shrimp, and pink rose petals.

    funny story....We have farmers market on Wed and Sat mornings. So I am wandering around the farmers market this AM and I notice this lady selling herbs...she has a sizable bag of rose petals for sale and I want to get it for my crabs, so I drifted over to her stand the bag says "Rosa de Castilla: Purga Para Los Bebes". I ask her how much the bag costs and she says "3 dollars. These are great for relieving constipated babies (that's what the label was about) just put them in the bath with the babies and it will soften their stool right up!" Um..O.K I say...I will take it. The lady gives me a very suprised expression"You have a baby?" she asks. Um...no I replied. I am going to....um..feedittomyhermitcrabs....OH...she said........It is also great for relieving sores in the mouth! :chuckle: lol...of course she sold it to me but I don't think she really thought that was what I was going to do with it. I guess it could come in handy...if my crabs are ever constipated!

    tonight Edward is getting the same in the supplement and dry dish. Since Tick is down the dry food lasts a few days, then it gets soggy.
    in the fresh dish he is getting:
    Coconut Milk, organic local orange blossom honey (yummy), pecans, raisins, golden delicious apple.

    Last night they had whole grain pasta with olive oil, tomatoes and bell peppers. You should have seen them dive bomb the food dish! They loved the noodles--they sat in the food dish, each with a whole noodle in their feeding claw and proceeded to chow down on the entire thing. They looked like little kids slurping down their spaghetti! lol

    Does anyone else cook for the crabs whatever the rest of the family is eating--only modified a little? Or am I the only weird one? lol

    Last night we had chicken stir fry with brown rice. The crabs had stir fry as well--field greens, spinach, broccoli, carrots, peas, and green beans stir fried in olive oil, served over whole grain rice with crushed almonds and krill sprinkled on top. The best part is there's plenty to save and serve again next week! lol
