Five pounds of crawfish for 17.49

Frozen, from Egypt, at Kroger.

Who eats these things?

It’s been slow around here so I thought I’d stir things up.

Mmmmmm!!! Crawfish Shawarma with sesame tahini sauce. I think I saw that on the menu at Droubi’s once.

Ever tried dipping your crawfish tails in hummus? Or serving with falafel? Or stewed in molokia? I bet that’s the way the Pharaoh’s liked their mudbugs.

Didn’t realize it is crawfish season along the Nile this time of year.

On another note, I saw a new tamale place on W. Bellfort near the old Westbury Square, I may try to fight the traffic over there in an hour or so and pick some up for supper.

Sounds like you’re in denial.

Egypt! For REELZ! Here in Crawdaddy country???

Fried is how I like em. If they’re boiled they need to be right out of the pot and hot and I’m outside at a party.

I used to always order the crawfish fried rice at China Garden. Long long ago in a far away era, I was enslaved to a company that paid a bonus in the form of a summer evening called raquetballarama/foodarama night. Those who played, played, then we all went to China Garden to see how many bottles of Tsing Tao could be emptied during a feast. I think the record was in the area of 120.

Lambsy, for REELZ, whole ones. They also had Chinese tails to add insult to injury, not priced from a company called Burton’s as were the Egyptians. A quick thought, do Egyptian crawfish walk like an Egyptian?

Here’s a real life fried crawfish tale/tail, pun intended. Some friends of mine and I were at Pappadeaux SW Freeway and I was enjoying a half fried half etouffee. I was about to ask for a to go box for my just over half eaten meal when a manager came by to see how everything was. We both glanced at my plate at the same time and spied a small chunk of glass that looked like it came from a coke bottle.

My meal comped, a full order to go plus a 25 dollar gift card which I used to mostly pay for a lobster dinner.

Winner winner crawfish/ lobster dinner.

We all joked about bringing some throw down glass the next time.

Ah racquetball, I destroyed at it in my 30’s and could play for hours without a break. My surgeon says this and all the sports I played is why I have two fake joints. I wouldn’t change anything.
