My grandma's MD crab soup!

Even though today is not as dark cool and gloomy as yesterday when I got the craving to make it, now i cant get the idea out of my head and am making it anyway.  

Combine in crock pot:
1 mason jar of canned tomatoes 
1 large bag of mixed frozen veggies.
1-2 small white potatoes cubed
1 pound of lump crab meat
3 cups of water
1 Tbs of Old Bay or to taste (I usually add a lot more)
Again this is my grandmothers fool proof recipe you can probably edit it if you don't have something. Just throw it all together and let it cook in the crock pot all day and you will have the best soup ever. 

I'll try to edit later with a pic of the finished product but you get the idea.

For those that came to my graduation party, this is the way the roast pig should be made. Found this video on my dad's camera. It's from the last time I was in the Philippines, at the house my mom grew up in in Vallehermoso. This is when I discovered that the secret to its crispy skin was.....SPRITE! Who knew?

I've got a pile of those ramen seasoning packets that i'm not sure what to do with. 
Maybe send them back to top ramen?  I pretty much eat some variation of this once a day.
 it includes some spicy prickly ash hot pot sauce, radish kimchi, some boring shrooms, sometimes sausage and/or tofu, and whatever else i can find to stick in there.

an excessively superior site
