laissez les bon temps roulez

Crawfish arrived about 1:30.  Boiling started about 4:30.  Friends began arriving about 5:00.  We started in the backyard but rain drove us inside.  No matter.  

A little bit crowded and a lot of moving platters of food to make room at the table.  Crawfish was in big demand, as was the corn boiled in the crawfish spices, the pasta and fruit salads, chilled shrimp..... not to mention the wine and beer.  And there was the tray full of baklava that our neighbors brought for dessert from the Greek festival in Norfolk.  A very fun evening.

I kind of wish I was sailing today but the weather is unsettled.  And there is some clean up work to do.  But now is the beginning of the summer day sailing season.  The water and air have warmed up (finally).  I'll get out there next week.

I sometimes think of this as a food blog with some sailing thrown in.

Not that there's anything wrong with that, mind you.

I cannot argue with that description. Food, sailing. What's not to like??
