Yesterday we went out and got the new baby a dresser from Baby's R US and then we went food shoppin and found out there was a sale on crab legs. We bought a big ol bag and had us a crab bake.
We used some OldBay seasoning and boy did that bring back memories of Baton Rouge and crawfish. I remeber as a kid going to a barbq and seeing a giant vat boiling with these werid little lobster looking things. They really do not have alot of meat on them so u have to cook a ton of them to fill up a grown human. Real po people food, crawfish and gumbo, good time good time. All cooked outside the trailer in home made grills and vats. These were real people who knew how to have fun with what little they had. It seem less complicated life, but now all those ppl have all kinds of new problems thanks to mother nature. I just hope LA can rebuild, I plan to go down for Mardis Gras someday, I went when I was a kid but I could not enjoy as I would as an adult ;-)
