What does a Texan far from home do when spring comes around? She hosts a crawfish boil! Never mind that she lives in a “tiny New York apartment,” Lisa—the blogger better known as Homesick Texan—took the plunge last weekend and celebrated the way they do in parts of the South: with 20 pounds of live Louisiana crawfish.
She’s shared some lessons learned on her blog. Some of these are not issues you normally encounter with a backyard crawfish boil down South, but we Yankee urbanites need to be prepared. Heed Lisa’s advice:
When your live crawfish arrive at the office, resist the pleadings of your colleagues to open the cooler and pull out a couple for races. This can only lead to trouble, especially if they’re fast and like to hide (the crawfish, not your colleagues).
