2015 Calcutta

Another great time was had November 8 at our annual Calcutta races. The event was originally scheduled for the previous day which was rainy and dreary. On Sunday the weather cooperated with a sunny, not-too-hot day. The temperature was cool enough early in the morning that some of the racing teams were able to hold their first training run for the season before the Calcutta.

This year we had 14 teams competing. The winning team was Frank’s number 1 team with Dawson, Nikko, and Gelph with a raw time of 10.78 (time with penalty 11.28). The team was owned by Diane. Diane also owned the second place team, Ron number 1 with Halley, Robin, and Hero. In third place was Frank number 2 with Nate, Cutter, and Samba, owned by Jane.

Several puppies (Melody, Keeonah, and Baxter) also attended and watched, maybe picking up tips for next year.

2014 Calcutta

Saturday November 8 CSHC held its annual Calcutta race and meeting. As usual we had a great day betting, racing, and eating! Unfortunately some members who are usually there could not make it, but some newer members and potential members joined in.

We had a total of 13 teams racing. Five teams had novice drivers. All did well and all finishing times were within 4 seconds. The winning team of Dawson, Nikko and Nate was driven by Frank and owned by Diane. Joe’s team of Holly, Gretzky, and Christian (owned by Debby) was second and his team of Greyson, Knight, and Holly (owned by Scott) took third.

We of course had abundant and wonderful food following the racing. One favorite dish was Doug’s crab soup. He has kindly shared the recipe.

                                 Maryland Crab Soup

Ingredients 
1 bag (1 lb) soup mix vegetables from Giant (carrots, potatoes, corn, green beans, Lima beans, okra, peas, celery, onions)
2 (14.5 oz) cans petite diced tomatoes (do not drain)
1 qt. low sodium chicken broth
3/4 cup chopped onion
2-3 tbs minced garlic
1/4 cup Old Bay Seasoning (not crab seasoning, OLD BAY, there is no substitute!!!!)
8oz container crab claw meat drained and well rinsed
1-2tsp olive oil
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

Put onions and olive oil in a large pot on stove top and set heat to medium-high. While they begin to cook open cans and rinse crab meat. Once onions have started to turn translucent pour in chicken broth, tomatoes, and Worcestershire Sauce. Bring to a low boil. Add the entire bag of soup mix vegetables (these have Lima beans, green beans, potatoes, okra, carrots and celery). Bring back up to a boil. Add in garlic and most of the Old Bay. Taste and add more Old Bay as needed. Old Bay is the predominant flavor in this soup, so you will probably use the whole 1/4 cup. Reduce heat to a simmer and add the crab meat, folding in carefully to not break up too much, you want whole pieces, not shreds. Simmer 5 minutes to heat crab meat and serve. This is actually best made a day ahead and reheated, but it’s still really good straight off the stove. We like it with hot French bread and butter or garlic toast as a dinner, but it’s great with crackers for lunch. Microwaves well and freezes OK, but it’s so easy I just make it and we eat it for a couple days. Recipe also doubles well and works as a great football game day meal for friends.          (From Staci Wolfe)
