This weekend we had our yearly cemetery associate meeting aka family reunion which includes a potluck dinner afterwards. I always try to take two or three things, and this year wasn't any different, I took Spicy Crawfish Jumbalaya, Apple Dumplings Cobbler, and Strawberry Salad (recipe coming later)! There is always more food than anyone can eat, and the first thing I am looking for is new recipes from wonderful family cooks. This year I came away with a wonderful recipe for Mexican Pot Roast that I am hoping to make soon.
Jambalaya is a Cajun rice dish that may include a variety of meats and fish. With Crawfish in season right now it was the perfect time for this recipe.
I used crawfish my Grandsons brought me from a crawfish boil that they had leftover from a Crawfish Boil their school had for a fundraiser. What a huge blessing it was to get crawfish. I don't know if you have ever eaten crawfish or not, but it takes a whole lot of crawfish to make this dish when you only use the tails. It takes two pounds of crawfish tails, and that would be approximately 10 pounds of crawfish. Thankful for my Grandsons thinking of their Grandma!
