How to bring New Orleans into your home and host an amazing crawfish boil!

Phew, we're finally recovered and back to normal after last weekend's crazy busy, and fun-filled Sunday! My lady and I hosted our 4th Annual Crawfish Boil - a time where I bring a little bit of my New Orleans heritage down to Florida to share with those I love.  Friends and family from near and far came over to visit us, enjoy our garden, and suck down a few heads!

We always showcase a few varieties of beer from our good friends' brewery, Pair O' Dice Brewing Company - this year we selected Cascade Amber and Lucky Lucy Strawberry Blond Ale. 

We shipped 100 lbs of live Crawfish straight from Louisiana!

The day turned out to be gorgeous, and good times swept the yard.  By the end of the night, we had less than a pound of tailmeat left - a sure sign we had some good eaters at the party!

What to do with all that cabbage?

On weekends during market hours, I'm asked "What do I do with cabbage?" pretty regularly. I readily rattle off a few random recipes - maybe something I've made in the past, or something completely new I just thought of.  I enjoy the challenge of brain-storming new and old ideas, oftentimes coming up with something I've never seen before or just giving a little twist on a forgotten recipe.

So, as they say, Challenge Accepted.
