A few did try to escape, but didn’t get past the gatekeeper (Rob):

Here comes the food:
Time to dig in and eat!
Depending on the availability, we’ll probably do another crawfish boil on the 4th of July – but Rob and Christy wanted to make sure we were able to experience the yumminess while we are here, just in case…delicious! 🙂

The broadband internet is really a connection through a cell phone link – so in other words, I have little or no connection. It’s taken me all day just to get these pictures uploaded to Blogger, but I did successfully get a Random Tuesday Thoughts post done and ready for upload later tonight, so there will be activity on my blog – I just will be hit-and-miss visiting my favorites and commenting…I promise I’ll be doing a lot of catch up next week when we’re back home and have real internet connection… 😉

Meanwhile, we’re having a blast, and while I’m not getting @replies to my random tweets, I am sending updates periodically to Twitter from my cell phone…and when I can get online, I’m checking and replying to replies so you don’t think I’m ignoring you… 😉 In case you want to follow the fun, you can follow me on Twitter: @SassyDesigns

Now it’s time to upload this post and shut things down – there’s a storm brewing in the distance and it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to have my laptop sitting outside when it hits… 😉

  1. It looks so yummy! I'd love to have a crawfish boil at home. 🙂 Delish!

  2. And how many of you were eating all those crawfish? Yum, that looks so good and FUN to eat. I love that in LA it's acceptable to just dump your food on a cardboard box! LOL!

    Justine 😮 )

  3. Hey!! You are down in my neck of the woods. Welcome to Louisiana! It's hot huh?

    Crawfish looks so good!

  4. Wow!! Fabulous dinner. Very fun.

    I bet you have a headache from trying to upload the photos!! Take it easy. Maybe, just repost a couple of past favorites.

  5. I just had something similar, except they used shrimp instead of crawfish, but it was excellent!

  6. HECK YEAH!!!! Makes me miss the south and our crawfish boils durin' the summer / holidays!!!! Love, love, love this post!!!!

  7. Looks awesome. I've never eaten a crawfish but I always see people filling their plates with them at buffets in Las Vegas. So what do they taste like and is there much meat on them?

  8. I would love to try this recipe. I'm not sure about the crawfish, may use shrimp.

    Can you post the recipe when you return please.

  9. Eww on the crawfish, sorry. 😉 I'm glad you're finding means to get online a little.. I was worried about your sanity if you didn't.

  10. That looks so good! We are huge boil fans, one of our favorite restaurants does a decent job for being in Colorado. I love how thrilled Rob looks about you taking all the pictures! Thanks for the post!

  11. I'm so glad you showed all those photos. I had no idea! Mind you, I wouldn't eat any of it (no seafood for me) but it sure looks pretty!

  12. "Hosing down the crawfish to keep them happy and to rinse them off:"

    Sure, keep the poor little crawfish happy until you EXECUTE them….. they never knew what hit 'em!

  13. The lst time I saw a crawfish I was disecting him for highschool biology. ICK! how do you ever "eat" somethign that small, bring me a REAL Lobster!!! 🙂
