Cajun Crawfish Boil - YUM!

First of all, you find a good reason to party, like celebrating Wilson's college graduation . . . :)



Then you ask your granddaughter to size up 40 pounds of live crawfish in a bucket . . .


You do battle with defiant runaways . . .


You then start the boil with spices, lemon juice, onions, & garlic . . . man does that smell goood!


You take the defiant crawfish and his 1000 cousins and "let 'em go for a swim" as master chef, Will Perkins, stands by with the stirring spoon to make sure nobody falls out . . .


Toss in a few sticks of butter and some mushrooms . . . tell everyone to stop salivating so much!


Cover the table with paper and a cardboard tray then make a mountain of the crawfish, onions, and garlic. Decorate on top with sweet corn and 'taters . . .


After the feast is over, lay back, relax, and savor the memory . . .

Looks interesting, but personally I don't think I could bring myself to actually eat it. I'm sure it is delicious, but boy o boy that would be a tough one for me.

I'd slap superman to be able to race to the bottom of that pile with a pause from time to time to "typewriter" a cob !
They ain't no loosers in a race to the paper table cover !
