We have great neighbors and lots of good cooks in the bunch. The weather was perfect and a good time was had by all. Well, except for the boy who had to go to the emergency room after accidentally getting hit in the face by a hockey stick. Eight stitches later....he'll be fine.

Saturday night we had a neighborhood crawfish boil. Neighbor Steve boiled the crawfish in a huge pot. (I didn't get a picture...sorry) After boiling the crawfish they are transferred into large coolers to sit and absorb all the spices. Neighbor Steve learned the fine art of crawfish preparation while living in Louisiana. Yes, the main spice you see is cayenne pepper. Like they say...Some like it hot!
After the crawfish have a sufficient amount of soaking time the liquid is drained off and then they are spread out on tables. There was about 100 pounds of crawfish consumed that night.
No, I don't eat crawfish, but I do like the corn on the cob and potatoes that are cooked along with them. The corn and potatoes hadn't made it to the table yet.
