Crawfish- Pros & Cons

As a southern woman, I take great pride in crawfish- not just as a meal, but what it means to my friends and family. It’s apart of our culture.

I grew up in a family where we have seafood gumbo for Christmas dinner, and a crawfish boil for Easter Sunday. Nothing is better than indulging in pounds and pounds of crawfish, plus corn and potatoes (the BEST part).
