So I have a coworker who just moved from Florida who has never had crawfish before? Here in south Texas it is a huge thing. Bars that don't even normally sell food sell crawfish. Have you had crawfish before? What types of food does your city/state eat during season??

The only reason that I brought this up with my coworker is bc a couple times a year we go to my aunts lake house and do big crawfish boils and throw the heads into the lake as a sort of chum then we fish all night and get up early and fish for catfish and have a fish fry. Do y'all do big boils like that?

We do crab, shrimp and crawfish boils all year long here. One of the perks of living by the gulf :) My husband and I do like crab boils the most bc we can find them here live all year around. Do businesses start serving crawfish there that don't usually sell food? Even grocery stores have people cooking crawfish outside to sell by the pound.

I love blue crab! We usually have to boilit ourselves though. Typically the only places that sell blue crab are asian markets and they sell them live which is fine but sometimes we just want someone to cook for us :) the only crab you can get restaurants here is snow king or Dungeness.

I lived in central Texas growing up and north Texas now and I've never eaten crawfish.

I live in Florida and have had crawfish here. Maybe she doesn't like seafood.

Serve these tomatoes outside with a glass of iced tea one summer night and enjoy the sunset with someone you love.
