    Are you getting your boots on?

    This stuff is getting purt' near done, we may have to have a taste test tonight.

    As far as the crawfish boil tomorrow goes, the list of participants keeps getting longer...The good part is that most of the additional guests dont like mud bugs...Too bad for them! On top of that they are bringing more food... I sense a nap in my future.

    Heres a teaser...

    And some Fiery ABTs

    Sheesh, Donny, that looks and sounds so good, it would darn near be worth the drive from Colorado to Texas just to pig out! :D Now, I trust you have sufficient "hops flavored beverages" iced down to put out the fires! ;) Oh, and as the party gets going, Donny, be sure to sing that famous Irish Rovers song . . . :D ;) :p

    WASN'T THAT A PARTY

    Could've been the whiskey
    Might've been the gin
    Could've been the three or four six-packs,
    I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in
    My head is like a football
    I think I'm going to die
    Tell me, me oh, me oh my
    Wasn't that a party

    Someone took a grapefruit
    Wore it like a hat
    I saw someone under my kitchen table
    Talking to my old tom cat
    They were talking about hockey
    The cat was talking back
    Long about then every-thing went black
    Wasn't that a party

    I'm sure it's just my memory
    Playing tricks on me
    But I think I saw my buddy
    Cutting down my neighbour's tree

    Could've been the whiskey
    Might've been the gin
    Could've been the three or four six-packs,
    I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in
    My head is like a football
    I think I'm going to die
    Tell me, me oh, me oh my
    Wasn't that a party

    Billy, Joe and Tommy
    Well they went a little far
    They were sittin' in my back yard, blowing on a sireen
    From somebody's police car

    So you see, Your Honour
    It was all in fun
    The little bitty track meet down on main street
    Was just to see if the cops could run
    Well they run us in to see you
    In an alcoholic haze
    I sure can use those thirty days
    To re-cover from the party

    Could've been the whiskey
    Might've been the gin
    Could've been the three or four six-packs,
    I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in
    My head is like a football
    I think I'm going to die
    Tell me, me oh, me oh my
    Wasn't that a party

    The second image looks like jalepenos wrapped with bacon, but are they filled with a little cheese? Dat'd be good :) Pepper Jack, maybe? And beans are always good to blow the sheets up at night; scares the ghosts away.

    Lead, they are actually filled with my current favorite which is minced crab meat...There are four in the batch that that I experimented with that were sardines in louisiana hot sauce...I liked those "okay", but not like the crab and they didn't amp the heat up as much as I had hoped.

    I'll post up some pictures of Saturdays crab boil...The guys had such a good time that we've decided that a couple boils per season aint gonna cut it.

    We started with 100 LBS of bugs and found very few that had to be discarded...Much to my delight. :D

    This cooler contains 33 LBS or so.

    I like it! :D

    Ya know, they may find my crawfish eating habits a little less than refined...I'm learning that sitting at the table with a plate only gets in the way. The way those two big boys are eating is the only way to fly...Dump a huge amount in a pickup bed and put a trash can between you for the shells. :D

    Around here we put out a plastic tablecloth on a picnic table and spread em out. Put several plastic bins down each side, and a 5-gallon bucket at each end of the table.

Man warn us next time.:D Glad you had a good time. There are some things here in Idaho that we don't get as much of as I would like, like weather for good crawdad fixin. catfish

    LOL, thanks Bob :D

    I promise you one thing, you'd be more than welcome in my bunch...Were planning another one real soon at the lake where we can stay all night and get tore up without having to drive home. :D

    No hens running around this time though!
