I spent 12 days there back in 1994 and 7 days in 2001. I fell in LOVE with Lou's anna/Naw'lins style crawdads.
Every year, since I left Hawaii 5 years ago, Ive been ordering crayfish from Louisiana.
This year I had family and friends over for my first hosted "boil". 16 people in fact. I ordered 140 pounds of dads from my supplier...
What a FANTASTIC TIME!
One of the coolest things I have done (living on the east coast for 10 of the last 25 years) has to be being invited to or hosting a "boil" or "steam". There is nothing like sitting with a ****load of family and friends drinking and eating endless amounts crustaceans or mollusks, Crayfish, Crab or Clams. What a fantastic time we had.
Any Crawfish/ New Orleans Creole Style fans?
Any East coaster input?
I love New Orleans. Where else can you eat 3 pounds of crawfish, slam a 48oz Hurricane, and stumble right into a Vodoo Store??? Killer!
