My Dad is coming to see me and he lives in Mississippi so he wanted to bring me some craw-fish but doesn’t know where to get any. He has to pass through Louisiana on the way here. Any ideas on where he can get some?
You can order some crawfish and have it waiting for him through Wagon-Load Power Shopping, an Amazon Affiliate.
Cajun accordionist Nathan Abshire’s “French Blues”. One of his best songs. Slide is my tribute to a Louisiana crawfish boil. I hope, for you Louisiana natives who have moved away, or a friend of Louisiana culture, you enjoy the music, and can smell and taste the mudbugs.

In New Orleans, indeed throughout Louisiana, the principal outdoor cooking incident uses what most of the country regards as bait, and boils them as an entree. A crawfish boil is to Louisiana what a clambake is to New England. This one, at a local golf tournament, is organized on a gargantuan scale by caterer Axel Stromboe. Butane jets generating some three hundred thousand BTU’s, bring a hundred gallons of water to boil in twenty minutes. Chef Stromboe does a little heating himself with spices measured by the handful.

Or when was the last time a pro sports team from Louisiana won a title of any kind?

If I open up a crawfish restraunt that serves Louisiana style crawfish $7.99/ lb. Would you be willing to pay?
My restaurant would also serve blue crabs, dungenees crabs, poor boy sandwiches, raw oyster, jambalaya, etcc…. everything Louisiana style. You will get a choice of Mild, Med, Hot, plus 4 different cajun flavoring for your crawfish, every 2 pound you order, you get a free corn of cob and 1 Sausage.
If I decided to start off slowly and cook them from home by the pound order over the phone, are you willing to pick it up $5.00/lb?
Bring it on Dannyboy I’m getting Hongry just thinking about it!
i need to meet someone half way.what is 750 miles from portland maine traveling to louisiana
A good place to stop would be Harrisonburg, Virginia. From there you could visit some quite historic sites such as New Market, Thomas Jefferson’s home in Monticello and James Monroe’s home. This entire area is full of history and Harrisonburg is full of Quality motels along I-81. Using Harrisonburg is only 653 miles, you could continue on down to the North Carolina area, but my stop would be Harrisonburg
Good luck on you trip.
