Growing up in Louisiana, you get used to a spring culinary staple, crawfish. Eating crawfish in Louisiana is equivalent to lobster in Maine, or cheese steak in Philadelphia. The great thing about eating crawfish is that it is typically a social activity. You do not see many people picking up crawfish to go, and eating it in front of the television. A crawfish boil brings people together, whether it is to celebrate a special event, or a casual Sunday afternoon. My favorite thing about attending crawfish boils is the family and friend bonding. The last boil I attended lasted over 5 hours, where we ate, drank, our children played, and we enjoyed the great outdoors and each others company. Crawfish boils are more than just a great meal; they are a reason to bring your family and friends together, and to take time out of our busy schedules to just enjoy each other.
