Crawfish Boil

Yum! Yum! Yum!

The crawfish boil was a HUGE success and wildly delicious! The 90 pounds arrived first thing Saturday morning in a giant box.  We quickly got to work cleaning them off, preparing all of the fixings, picking up the beer and running other last minute errands.  We had a few first-timers and surprisingly, one was incredibly irked by the little mudbugs. It took three batches and several hours, but all of the 90 pounds was gone by the end of the night!

Of course crawfish aren't just a food delicacy, but also make alluring, whimsical works of art.

Crawfish boils are also fantastic inspiration for cakes. Here's my husband's incredibly realistic groom's cake!

Hmmm...makes me hungry all over again!
