Etta James and Sonny Landreth on the same day … I’m in heaven. And thanks to Mid City Stevie and his legendary First Sunday of Jazz Fest Mystery Street Crawfish Boil, so is my tummy. Now for all you folks who wonder why all the fuss about these tiny little lobsterettes, below is a pictorial of the process of boilin da bugs.
Number One: Unwrap a big bag of the little lovelies, throw them in a pot of cold water with some salt and keep them from escaping.
Number Two: Add spices, stir and boil
Number Three: Serve and Devour
Number Four: Relax
And where else but New Orleans could you be eating crawfish with your friends and wave to Lawrence Fishburne walking by or have Alan Touissant honk his horn at you as he leaves the Fest? Well nowhere really. So thanks Stevie and see all y’all next weekend.
