#9....bunnies, chocolate & crawfish

For Easter we hosted our second annual crawfish boil. The weather almost ruined it, but everything (including the crawfish) turned out great and about 15 people came for the feast. We boiled a total of 40 lbs. of crawfish, 4lbs. of sausage, and 20 lbs. of veggies, including; mushrooms, corn, potatotes, garlic, onions and lemon. This season, the crawfish were running $2.75 per lb., so the 40lb. sack of crawfish cost about $120 including the spices that get added to the boiling water. It takes about 3 hours to do the prep work for the boil, which includes cleaning the crawfish, cutting up all the veggies and sausage and boiling the water. The crawfish actually cook for less than 30 minutes once they make it into the pot. It is a messy meal, but if you have an outdoor space to do it, it is really fun!
