Decor: Channeling Mardi Gras On Thanksgiving Day

The family was missing home which is New Orleans so I decided to have fun with this year table setting. I had a box in the shed that had some back home goodies in it. So instead of doing a turkey, a ham or mini hens I choose crawfish. Some of my menu came from Louisiana Crawfish, Thank God to them. I luv ordering my crawfish from Louisiana Crawfish during the summer. To see the smiles on my family face was priceless because everything was what they asked for. I’m just thankful that I was able to give them a great day because last year during this time I was in the hospital due to complications with my lupus. I just remember cooking that morning and I started to feel weird, So I’m blessed to be here with my family, friends, and coworkers. 



This year for Easter my daughter requested that instead of the doing the traditional Easter dinner she was craving seafood mostly crawfish. She was missing home since she never ask for anything I decided to grant her wish by ordering 20lbs of crawfish from my favorite place, Louisiana Crawfish Company. Lord knows I’m not supposing to be eating a lot of heavy season food but I must admit I was craving crawfish as well. If I was back home I would be eating crawfish everyday especially during crawfish season…Laissez Bon Temps Roulez

Been Craving Crawfish all Winter

Crawfish $3.29 a lb
Got my crawfish today…I was only able to eat 4lbs on my first round by myself. Round 2 happens shortly. I definitely miss my New Orleans goodies. Bread pudding follows.
