Did you ever wonder how to eat a crawfish? At a crawfish boil, everything is cooked in one big pot with the crawfish and seasoning and dumped on a table for everyone to stand around and eat. You twist it, suck the head for the juice (not shown in video) squeeze it to break the shell a bit, peel away some of the segments and pinch the tail to pull the meat out. Other things often in the boil are: oranges, lemon, potatoes, corn, mushrooms, sausage, garlic, artichoke. Anything goes. I must tell you, I am not a natural at it after living here for 4 years. Still amazed how fast the locals can peel it and get all the great meat. My kids seem to have picked it up as second nature.

    You lost me at that line! lol. When I worked for BP back in the late 90’s I had many a trip to the Alliance refinery there near New Orleans. A friend of mine took me to a crawfish place and showed me. But his step was suck the brain last. And when he said that my first words were “Um, no. Not eating brains. I’ll take a burger”… 🙂

    Of course I wasn’t all “no way not eating it” on everything. I sure enjoyed the snacks at Jax Brewery and there were some awesome little restaurants to eat in.

  2. By the way, I happened to see you on my sister in law’s blogroll…CarolMarksOnline. After I looked around here, I realized I’d seen your name before, by way of Soldiers’ Angels. 🙂 Wingtip to Wingtip.
