What’s Happening Today – August 28, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
Last March, we introduced you to Troy Blades of Easton. Troy was experiencing complete kidney failure that would later leave him on dialysis. He didn’t even tell his kids because he didn’t want them to know what Dad was going through. That’s just the amazing guy that Troy is. Well, fast forward to today and we are so excited to share with you…Troy’s “Happy Ever After.” Today, we talk with Troy about the hero he says, “changed his life.”
We all know what it’s like to get lost in a good story. So, imagine an entire night, full of those stories. Stories of hope. Stories of happiness. With all that we’ve gone through these past 6 months, i’d say that we all could use it. On top of it all, it’s for a life-saving cause. Today, we talk with Kathryn Redden of Toastmasters International and Vice President of the Lower Shore Performing Arts Company as well as, Jill Long, Chief Financial Officer at Avery Hall Insurance, to find out about their virtual storytelling event, in partner with Relay for Life.

The year was 2005. You probably drove to the movie store to rent movies. Kids shoes had wheels on the bottom. You made phone calls on a landline. A lot has changed since then, including Bayside Resort Golf Club. The club was started 15 years ago and in that time, it has grown into so much more. Katie recently visited Bayside’s Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course to explain.
Just yesterday, we learned about the incredible story of Ari. Ari’s leg was amputated just a few weeks after birth, but she sure hasn’t let that stop her! Ari and her owner, Carolyn Banes of Ellendale, have formed an unbreakable bond that i’m sure many of us can understand. If you’re thinking, I want one of those unbreakable bonds..we have just the sweet faces to connect you with. Check out some cuties in today’s Pet Connect.
We have something that we think will just melt your heart. We’ve heard he’s quite a hound dog. And he mostly recently made his debut in a children’s book. We’re introducing you to Author, Dr. James Vansciver of Lewes, as he tells us about his furry friend, Elvis, who was the inspiration behind his new book.
Whether you’re out on the ocean feeling the breeze in your hair or dancing like nobody’s watching or defying the odds – we think it’s important to always celebrate those moments that just made you smile. That’s why every Friday, we look back on all those special moments we shared this week. We have another round of “All That is Good.”
Here on Delmarva, we sure do love some crabs. Today we have a recipe that combines the best of both worlds: crab and pasta! Homemade Crab Ravioli is easy and delicious. So sit back and enjoy! Check it out below:
What You’ll Need
- 2 (6-ounce) cans lump crabmeat, drained
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 2 scallions, finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 (12-ounce) package wonton skins (48 skins total)
What to Do
- In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except the wonton skins.
- Place a single wonton skin on a flat surface and spoon a teaspoon of the crabmeat mixture onto the center of the wonton skin. Using a pastry brush or your fingertips, moisten the edges of the wonton skin with water. Fold one corner of the wonton skin across to meet the opposite corner, forming a triangle. Using your fingers, carefully seal the ravioli, being careful to keep the filling inside. Place on a platter and repeat with the remaining ingredients.
- Fill a soup pot three-quarters full with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Place 12 ravioli in the boiling water and cook 6 to 7 minutes or until tender. Remove with a slotted spoon and place in a colander to drain completely. Continue with remaining ravioli.
Just a Suggestion!
- Serve these topped with either warm marinara sauce or simply with grated Parmesan cheese.
