Last weekend I was on the judge's panel for the Crawfish Mambo boiling competition; we were warned in advance to expect up to 45 entries. Thankfully enough, there were "only" 41. I can eat crawfish with the best of them, but after 90 minutes... We were evaluating the side additions to the pot as well as the crawfish. The usual potatoes, corn, and sausage were well represented, but we also saw sweet potatoes, pineapple, brussels sprouts, and even mango, which was surprisingly delicious. There's no telling what you'll find in a crawfish pot these days.
I've plunged into getting the July / August issue into production; we have all your summer feasts covered, and take full advantage of summer's fresh, delicious produce and seafood. Friends and neighbors are always happy with this section of the cycle; we're cooking and tasting and I'm always looking for someone to foist the leftovers off to. Can't let anything go to waste! This week it's skirt steak, seafood rolls, a summer pasta skillet, pepper-jelly glazed chicken, and summer salads.
There's lots to do around the entire state and the weather is supposed to be beautiful. Find something to do this weekend, enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and as always, let me know what's on your mind.
