Crawfish Boil

We went to our Sunday School Party yesterday afternoon/evening. It was a crawfish boil. We all had a wonderful time and the food was just WONDERFUL!

Here are just a small portion of those poor helpless crawfish that are soon to be gobbled up by all. Boy, don't they just look delicious?

Here are the vegetables and sausages that were also boiled.

And out they come. At least round #1 of them. I think that they cooked 2 to 3 more rounds of them.

They are ready to be enjoyed.

Like any party all the men were out in the yard either helping with the cooking or just talking up a storm while the women were back under the carport sitting down gabbing away.

Here is the plate that Andy and I shared before we dived in. Boy, just looking at this is making my mouth water. I think we filled up that plate quite a few times before we called it quits.
One finished plate and two very happy people with full bellies.

Remember the picture from "Sunday Skies"? Well here is a look at the building looking inside of it. This is the old kitchen that was on the plantation. It was amazing to look in there but we couldn't go inside as it wasn't safe.
Here is a view of the front of the house. We were at one of our members house from Sunday School and it is an old plantation house. Some of what she was telling us as we got to tour her house was that it used to be used back in the Civil War as an old hospital (if I remember correctly). Yes, there are slaves buried in the back and yes, it is haunted. Last year the day after Halloween she told us that they woke up to all the cabinets opened in her kitchen!
It was a wonderful time and I hadn't realized how much I was enjoying myself until it was time to go home. Our wonderful friends down the street from us kept Sam and we needed to go and relieve them and get him home and ready for bed. I really didn't want to leave. There will be more though and I can't wait.
