Annual Crawfish Boil
We had our annual Crawfish Boil a couple of weeks ago. Lots of family, friends and fun. It is an all day affair starting around noon and finishing up at night. Of course, Greg starts preparing a week in advance. And our nephew, Daniel, always comes early and stays late to help Greg. This year both he and our oldest son showed up a whole day early. It was so wonderful to have all that help!
We had family come in from as far as Alabama and friends come over from as close as next door. We had a hot and humid day, but it started to cool off around 5:00 (by "cool off" I mean it dipped down into the 80s). One of the highlights of the party was a cake that our daughter-in-law's mother brought. A lab tech she works with at the hospital makes cakes for fun.
You would not believe this cake. It was so pretty I hated to cut it! Everything on it was edible. And the expression on the faces of the crawfish were priceless. I've posted more pics of the cake and the boil in my scrapbook. Click on the Circle of Friends heart at the top of the page, then click on the scrapbook.

She used some kind of sugar, but the corn-on-the-cob was hard as rock and the crawdads would stay formed if we picked them up. It was truly the most amazing thing I'd ever seen. I have a close up of it in my scrapbook (click the Dee's Circle of Friends heart at the top of the page, then click on the scrapbook).
That cake is awesome! I had crawfish for the first time in April... very interesting but maybe a little out there for this Cali girl. LOL
