Rajun Cajun

Monday, why do you always come around so quickly? I hope all of you had a great weekend.

On Saturday, we were invited to a crawfish boil. It was an interesting experience for me because anytime I see a head on an animal that I am about to eat, I freak. But, I was a big girl and peeled my own crawfish and it was actually really good and spicy!
Crawfish, anyone?

little buddy Fred sucked the juices out of the head - YUCK!

And Sunday was my dad's birthday. We went to church, took him out to lunch, and grilled out for his birthday dinner.


He has to have a Baskin Robbins cake roll for his birthday! And here's my dad being goofy while blowing out the candles!

And another great thing about the weekend was that we got to spend some time with our child! He's still mad that we left him.
We had a great weekend with our families and getting caught up on some of the household duties that were neglected while we were away. Fun, right?!

What did you do?

I've never been to a crawfish boil. Heck, I've never even eaten crawfish. Just shrimp. Is it similar? Looks like a lot of fun!

Totally get the whole "dog" attitude. Ours seemed mad for a little while, too. Goodness, they are so funny!

Hope you're having a great day!

Sounds like a great weekend. I'm so sad i'm going to be missing the crawfish bowl in Chicago. I've never been and have been dying to check it out.

Happy birthday dad! Looks like y'all had a great weekend!

Isn't strange that dogs hold grudges like that? Ours do the same thing!

Clearly South Dakota isn't a place for crawfish, but I HAVE taken part in a crawfish boil before and I LOVED it!

I have friends who's parents grew up in Louisiana and every year (in Feb.) their grandparents come up and bring a bunch of fresh crawfish and they have a huge boil. I was nervous at first but they are soooo yummy!
