Eatin' crawfish....

We had some great crawfish this weekend - I'm in Louisiana and this is just a staple of our diet!!!
They really do taste good - they just don't look so pretty - and there is definitely a technique involved in eatin' them.
As you can see, daughter Brandi and hubby Landon are really concentrating on their work.....
...and since they are usually more trouble than they are worth to me....I had shrimp......

This is at one of those great Cajun type restaurants - where you eat out on the back porch and they have these huge fans blowing - great place to relax and visit....

...daughter Kelsi, and my brother, Kelly

Brandi & Landon

we grow 'em really big down here!!!!

Looks like small lobster!!!!


I just love these "gas" cartoons



Kinda busy right now - life, work, etc.
Be back later........

I have never had them, but I would surely try! My son lived and worked in the deep south for a year, found it interesting,eating all sorts of different foods.We live up north in Ontario.
Take care,
Diane

Cute post, Donna Kay. I would have been having shrimp, with you!

A friend sent us a couple lobsters from Rhode Island a few years ago. First time we cooked lobster. At the end of the meal, J said it was a lot of work for a little bit of meat.:-) Wonder what he would think of crawfish. I'm sure he would give them a try, though! Looks like you had a great time.

The cartoon is cute!

Girl you are killing me! I would have LOVED to been right in the middle of that table. I have had no good crawfish in years.

I wonder who said, "Okay, the next thing that crawls out of the ground, we're gonna pull his head off, suck his brains out, then eat his butt!"
hehehee, I heard that one this weekend and couldn't help but share :)

Eeeewww! Crawfish! Yuck. LOL
I'm from Oklahoma. I eat cows, chickens and pigs. Period. My poor husband hasn't had much seafood and/or fish since we got married. Bless his heart. Hey - it's all I can do to cook "normal" things...cooking weird stuff like fish or shrimp or crawfish or lobster would probably kill me. lololol

Hope all is well with you!
