You Know It's Spring in Louisiana....

crawfish boil

This early spring day in north Louisiana was picture perfect - High blue sky, low humidity, temperatures in the 70's and a breeze! We went to our first crawfish boil of the year, and everyone was in fine spirits.
Crawfish boils are more social than nutritional. A group of people share a collective purpose, and there's something to keep your hands occupied. If the conversation drags, you can always immerse yourself in peeling your mudbugs.
Today's event was socially effortless because the organizers had set up big-screen TV's with the NCAA basketball tournament on them. There were plenty of distractions. The crawfish were well prepared, spicy but not overbearing. Jambalaya, corn and new potatoes were available to fill in the gaps. The beer was free.
What more could you ask for? Welcome to spring.
