Crawfish Feed!!

Never having been to a Crawfish Feed, I was thrilled to get a call  from our neighbors inviting us to a Crawfish Feed at there home!!  How fun is this going to be!?  Our host and hostess had everything  decorated and ready for the evening.  There was new learning...crawfish have pincers that can hurt!


The crawfish were flown in from Louisiana, hosed downed and, well, boiled....

...Round about the cauldron go...

There was no fillet of snake, eye of newt, toe of frog, or tongue of dog..., 
just crawfish, corn and potatoes!

Double, double, toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble...

This was one big cauldron to stir...


At just the right time, everything was tossed out on the table and the serious work began....creating piles of empty crawfish shells...bet the raccoon in the area were wishing they had been invited!


There were many light moments...lots of great laughs, great company and wonderful food!  
A great evening was had by all!


Cheers to our wonderful host and hostess!!

I am participating in Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer!
