Our psychological state allows us to see only what we want/need/feel to see at a particular time. What five words do you see?

I live in that part of the country, and this is the first I've heard of it.

The story, with a link to the FAA's .pdf, can be found here

Crab cream sauce recipe

 This is one of my favorite recipes.  The sauce is simple but amazing - far more than the sum of its parts.

4 - 5 oz lump crab meat
1/4 stick Danish butter
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
1 heaping tablespoon chili garlic sauce [Asian style]
1/4 cup whiskey or bourbon [I used Clynelish single malt scotch]
10 oz heavy cream
4 tablespoons tomato sauce

Saute shallots in butter until clear.  Add the crab meat and liquor, then ignite to burn off the alcohol.  Add remaining ingredients and then reduce until you have a thick sauce, stirring frequently.  Once you reach the desired consistency, sample and add salt to taste.  It won't taste like much until you have the salt mixed in.  But once you've added the right amount of that, magic happens.

Serve over seafood ravioli, accompanied by a nice chardonnay.
