Recipe and Review: Easy Au Gratin Seafood, salad and toasted French bread

We have had a pretty full day working around the house today. We were making some progress on a couple of projects, and I needed to make something quick supper. The other day I noticed that I had a can of lump crab meat and a can of tiny shrimp in the pantry that I had bought during a sale several weeks back. I decided to try this recipe. We all liked it, except M.C. She thought she would have probably liked it without the pimentos. I thought it was a pretty good dish, especially for the time and energy expended on it. We ate the rest of the Leftover Wedding Salad and a loaf of French Bread, and we baked 4 cookies from our freezer stash! It was all very filling and didn't take long to make!
