Blue Crab Casserole

I still do not eat crabs or any seafood. I will catch them for you, cook them,pick them but never ever eat them. I know everyone keeps telling me I don’t know what I am missing but like I tell them I may very well be missing something but at least they get to eat more since I will not touch crabs. Give me a good steak any day.
