Crawfeast would actually be a more apt title for this entry. Last Sunday, friends of ours invited us to their 2nd Annual Crawfish Bash, a tradition they started last year. And a crawfish bash it truly was! Never, as in NEVER, have I seen so much crawfish ever!
These pictures should give you an idea just how much crawfish I’m talking about…
Cooler #1 (Cooked)
Strainer #1 (Live)
Cooler #2 (Live)
I was not able to take a photo of another crawfish-filled huge pot that was cooking on the grill burner and another cooler with more live crawfish. Didn’t I say it was a crawfeast?! Hee hee.
We had some healthy side dishes to go with the abundant supply of crawfish.
and Corn on the Cob and Baby Potatoes
For dessert, we had leche flan, bread pudding, chocolate cream pie, apple pie and fresh fruits.
Whew! Hubby and I were able to fill an empty grocery bag with crawfish shells. The bowl we were getting crawfish from just kept getting refilled every time we thought we were done. We just couldn’t get enough of these cajun-spiced mudbugs!
Be sure to have your antihistamine or whatever diet supplement you’re taking handy when taking on such a huge gastronomic adventure. Anaphylactic shock is a party pooper, you know! Hee hee.
