No surprise for any of you who have talked with me since the program crawfish boil, but I am in love with ‘boiled’ seafood. Esp crawfish. Joe too! So we decided for his winging party, we would treat our families to a ‘Southern Style’ meal complete with crawfish and shrimp!
That being said? Neither of us had any idea as to what we needed to do. So last weekend we ventured to the Wal-Mart to get all of the hardware and then made our way to Joe Patties for fresh crawfish and shrimp.
They were really fresh…this one was a bit pissy-pants.
Our HUGE pot. It’s 80 quarts, and you could fit Echo in it.
So we invited our friends over (all of whom are from the north/midwest) and attempted to give them an authentic experience. Haha.
The boys playing corn-hole.
The Dineen’s super motivated corn-hole boards.
It looked AMAZING! And, it was wonderful. We are, however, going to get some advice so that it tastes better than the spice-packet directions. Zataran’s directions leave a bit something to be desired. I guess that’s when you defer to the professionals.
After that, we rounded out the night with some Torte. YUM. Lauren did an amazing job on it!!!
Okay, now I am officially hungry. Haha:) Hope everyone has a great night! Can’t wait to see “y’all” in a couple of weeks!
