Where can I get good already cooked craw-fish in Louisiana?

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.

I need to travel 750 miles south southwest, how many miles is that from portland maine ?

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.

Helen Reddy – Laissez les Bontemps Rouler – Louisiana Cajun Song – New Orleans

I really enjoyed making this video. I was born and raised in New York City, so my knowledge of Louisiana Cajun culture was very little at best when I was a young lad. When this song was released back in 1977, I was a mere 17 years old. When I first heard the song, I didn’t think it quite belonged on the “Ear Candy” album–and further, what the heck does this song mean? Well, now that I’m older and more appreciative of various cultures, I’ve come to learn more about Louisiana Cajun culture and cuisine and that knowledge put this song into perspective.

This song was the only Helen Reddy tune to make its appearance on Billboard’s Country chart–albeit at an abysmal No. 98. “Laissez les Bontemps (sic) Rouler” (the correct French spelling is bon temps [two words]) was released as the B side of “The Happy Girls”. “The Happy Girls” was a huge disappointment for Helen Reddy–it only peaked at No. 57 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in 1977. “The Happy Girls” charted a bit better (No. 14) on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart–a chart that was very good to Helen whenever the pop chart wasn’t.

I hope everyone who enjoys Cajun culture, crawfish, étouffée, and country music will also enjoy this video.

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.

New question:
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!
