Crawfish Boil

26 Mar

Every year my family has a crawfish boil where we invite a few family members and friends over to kick off the Spring/Summer and enjoy crawfish.

This year we had last-minute planning take place because originally my parents, me, Joseph, Trey, and Leeann were all going to be out of town fishing but due to the weather change, our fishing guide decided to reschedule.  This left an open weekend when we would all be off work and in town so we decided to throw a last-minute party together for this past weekend.

Also, Leeann’s 21st birthday was Sunday and Joseph’s 25th birthday is this Thursday so we thought we would combine their celebration with crawfish and make a party out of it!

I baked each of them a cake.  Joseph’s favorite is strawberry with strawberry icing so that’s what I made him and Leeann’s was a funfetti cake with funfetti icing.  Something inspired me to make the cakes double decker…why? I don’t know because I had never done it before so I’m not sure why I decided this would be the time to try it but I did…and it kinda worked fine.  I added fresh strawberries to the center layer and on top of Joseph’s but I didn’t put any fruit with Leeann’s because funfetti doesn’t need any help being delicious! 🙂

(yes Joseph’s cake was pink but that’s what happens with strawberry things)

I also thought I would be funny and buy some of those relight candles for them both.  We chuckled about it but eventually they were frustrated because those babies wouldn’t stop relighting!  They even licked their fingers to sizzle them out and some still came back to life!!  Definitely worth the whopping $1.50 for those candles!

Everyone played washers, ate crawfish and BBQ, and just hung out all afternoon/evening.

It actually turned out to be a pretty good party for such last-minute planning.  We had a great time and I am already craving crawfish again!! I don’t think I can wait a full year until we do it again!  Who’s in for round two??
