    Well the restaurants have started serving the crawfish down this way. Prices are up right now, as always at the beginning. $21.00 for 4 pounds. Went to the local joint. Pretty good food. Daughter tore up her 4 pounds..

  2. I have been trying to get the Commissary here to order some since I have been here in March, they keep telling me that there is no way to get them over here, yet they have frozen fish, chicken, pork, and beef. Go figure

    first time that i was in NO i ordered a filet and the waitress asked what i wanted on that? i said what do you mean? she said you can have shrimp, oysters or crawfish. a little caught of guard i said crawfish, why not........ man that was awesome!
     
  7. Them are some nice lookin bugs there! They look bigger than the ones that make it all the way to Nebraska! Always tasty though. Did that little girl actually eat that whole big tray of craws? That'd be quite an appetite on a little one.

    She ate all but 6...She loves the crawfish...I peel, she eats. 6-7 pounds of live crawfish will provide 1 pound of peeled tails. I usually do my own, but too much going on right now. Some from last year...

  12. Those look pretty good. There's a chain restaurant called Pappadeaux's around here that does an all you can eat crawdad day for 3 bucks/lb (If I remember correctly), only a few months a year. Pretty good, but they put a little too much seasoning on them in my opinion.

    Man oh Man you are killing me with the Mud Bugs. This is the first years i a while we aren't going to New Orleans after Mardi Gras. We will have to get some live ones here but we will eat some crawfish maybe this weekend too. We cann't get enough of the music, the food and the treditions of mardi Gras in New Orleans.

    nice, i'm happy crawfish are in season. I had some that were driven up from Lousiana last Friday @ the first crawfish boil of the year around here. Put away 6 lbs pretty easily.

    For those in Chicagoland there is a crawfish boil this weekend on SUper Bowl Sunday @ Toons bar in the city on Southport. $25 a.y.c.e. Another boil on March 20th as well.
