This past weekend was great - three days long and full of great activites. Remember when I talked about the backside of Churchill Downs being the best place? I went on Sunday to enjoy some crawfish, and it was amazing. There was tons of food, beer, and horses.
And I offically can eat a crawfish like a professional now. There was a stable guy who was rather skilled at eating crawfish. I now know how to get all the meat out of the body without "fighting" with it as I was doing before. All you do it twist the body off, pinch the end of the tail, bite the meat and pull. Voila! I also am not quite comfortable with eating the brains. A little too National Geographic for me. But the crawfish were big enough that you could eat the claw meat. That I did do. So good, such a relaxing way to spend part of my Memorial Day weekend. And we were such good eaters we have a standing invitation to all crawfish boils at this barn. The Maids and I can really put away some food.
Soon I am going to learn how to have a crawfish boil myself since I love them so. All I need is a turkey frier, some spices from Louisana, and crawfish! Who wants to come??
