KJ's, a local IGA grocer here, has crab legs on sale this week for $7.50/lb. A great price if they look decent so I went to check them out. Usually they don't have the best looking legs, but this time I was pleasantly surprised at how they looked. Including my wife, there's a few in the family who love them so I figured I'd treat them. Invited our best friends over to eat and he doesn't eat them so I figured I would grill a steak or two for me and him and whoever else may want some. He had an idea for a side dish to go with everything so here we go...

The side dish started with 3 colored peppers and 1 medium onion chopped. Into a pan with some butter and course salt and pepper to saute until tender...

The cauliflower side dish was interesting and good. I asked him where he got the recipe and he said he kind of made it up using what he had. I'd make it again...
 
Nice feast Charles. Looks like it was enjoyed by all.
Cauliflower dish looks tasty. Definitely a different than the norm.
 
Great looking meal. I like that side. Might have to try something like that myself.

Thanks guys. The whole meal with the exception of the cauliflower dish is fairly straightforward. The cauliflower was my main focus here because it was different pretty good...

Thanks Dude! I went back to the store today to see if the crab legs I got were just a fluke and they had plenty more that looked just as good. For $7.50/lb., I just had to buy some more for the freezer...:emoji_wink:
 
Looks bomb Charles. My friends in Alaska sent me 34lb of Alaskan king crab today. The wait is killing me!
