crab meat spread/ an appetizer

today i was going to a party and needed to take a 'dish to pass'. i had a pound of crab meat in the refrigerator and decided to revamp an old recipe that my friend linda gave me some 40 years ago. it has always been a popular recipe. alert everyone that it contains crab meat for those that are allergic.

 8 ounces cream cheese
4 ounces sour cream
1 cube vegetable bouillon, pulverized ( i use my mortar and pestle)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cajun spice

12 ounces crab meat, picked and drained,(i squeeze it with my hands to get out the excess moisture)
1 cup cocktail sauce
1/2 cup chopped arugula

place first five ingredients in bowl and mix till it is blended and smooth. i use my mixer.
spread mixture in an 8 or 9 inch pie plate or similar serving piece
spread cocktail sauce on top of cheese mixture.
sprinkle with chopped arugula ( parsley can be substituted but i like the little bite of arugula)

refrigerate till ready to serve.
