Fat Tuesday mantra “Suck head; pinch tail!”

Bliss!

 

Grow grow grow!!!!

Okay, so do you want the good news or the bad news first?  Let me start gently, then.  The good news is that it’s crawfish season again and it will be available for Mardi Gras!  The bad news is that this year is starting out like last year with small crawfish due to the cold weather, according to the Town Talk, a Louisianna based news publication.  This is a bubble buster for those of us living in Texas/Louisianna who’ve waited patiently to enjoy this seasonal delicacy.  Blame it on global warming but the weather is one of the major factors in getting them to plump up!  Once the weather starts to warm up, then you’ll be seeing some decent sized crawfish.  So, enjoy the festivities and the OTHER  food offered before Lent starts such as shrimp po’boys, king cake (good luck!!), pancakes (Shrove Tuesday tradition from England), or whatever street fare you find!  

Oh!  And, if you do get to eat crawfish this year, try it with lemon pepper (and beer).  If this is your first attempt to boil them, please don’t forget to purge them of the swamp muck by dunking them in ice water bath for ten minutes or so, then boil. 

Crawfish happens to be Stacy’s favorite, so stay tuned to Hungry-4-More because he may surprise y’all with a Cajun recipe for crawfish boils!
