Cleaning out a freezer is a dreaded chore around here. I do a pretty good job of keeping up with what’s in them but every now and then, I take everything out, defrost the three big freezers that are not frost free, and clean them all up. With deer season coming up, I wanted to clean them out so I started with the freezer in the house fridge. That’s one of the smallest ones and wouldn’t take forever.
Buried, I found a bag of crawfish tails that we had peeled when we had a crawfish boil here.
Those were quickly made into etouffee for lunch. Etouffee is super quick to make and I cooked rice in the pressure cooker. Vince mostly doesn’t like etouffee. He will eat hot, boiled crawfish but after they’ve been frozen, he says they taste fishy. CrawFISH! That means more for me. We had plenty of leftovers in the fridge so I wasn’t feeling sorry for him that I was fixing something he didn’t like. He decided he would try it and proclaimed “This is GOOD! It doesn’ taste fishy at all!” NOT more for me!
That was a pleasant surprise (finding the crawfish — not that Vince decided he liked them).
