New Orleans Part One; The First Crawfish Boil

Anyone who is from Louisiana knows life doesn't get much  better than a crawfish boil.
You buy them live, keep them in a cooler until their ready to dump into the huge boiling spice bath and then devour every last morsel. 

These were the live ones before they went in. Once their cooked they turn bright red just like a lobster.

Our second day in New Orleans our dear, dear friends Ryan and Hannah had a crawfish boil for us. This is a HUGE honor folks. HUGE!!!!! 
I will never be able to thank them enough.

Ryan and my husband Milton grew up together in New Orleans and I don't think it's a coinsidence that he married a woman named Hannah who happens to be one of the most precious people on the planet to me. 

Ryan the Boil Master!!!! 
Look at the size of that pot!!!

The gorgeous couple expecting baby number two. Congrats love birds!

All cooked up and ready to suck dry. YUM. YUM. YUM.

Everybody Feasting!!!

Little Milton LOVED them! He's got that Southern blood in him.

Showing mommy how delicious they were. Cutie.

Oh Ginger....Ginger....Ginger

You are so unbelievably beautiful in my eyes.

As a family.......enjoying every moment with friends at this special occation

True Happiness is a huge tray of fresh crawfish

My girl Hannah.........Beautiful Soul that she is.....It breaks my heart we don't live closer!!!! 

Love you girl!

This is one of many posts from our New Orleans vacation. More coming right up!!!

What a fun food adventure! I have never been a seafood eater really (I think I have had shrimp and rarely at that...) so I can't say I know what it tastes like, but it does look like you had fun. I can't wait to see the rest of your New Orleans pictures. I have always wanted to visit!

Hannah said...

Awww!!! Love you too my sweet friend!! We had such a wonderful day with your family and I'm SO thrilled I finally got to kiss those sweet babies. We love you all so much and even though distance has us far apart, y'all are SO close in our hearts. Here is a poem that describes my love for you so perfectly. I thank God everyday for our friendship. :)

"I carry your heart with me. I carry it in
my heart. I am never without it. Anywhere
I go, you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling.

I fear no fate, for you are my fate, my sweet. I want
no world, for beautiful you are my world, my true.
And it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you.

Here is the deepest secret nobody knows.
Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide.

And this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart.
I carry your heart. I carry it in my heart."

~E.E. Cummings~
