My mom heard from her co-worker about Pappadeaux's $3.95 per pound crawfish special on Mondays and Tuesdays starting at 5 PM from now until April 27th. It didn't take us long to plan an evening of crawfish eatin'!
We decided that eating a couple pounds of crawfish wouldn't be filling for dinner, so we ordered the crab and spinach dip and a dozen oysters with two stone crab claws. Ummm...so a couple of pounds of crawfish probably isn't filling, but 10 pounds for 3 people definitely is! We were bursting from the seams after dinner.

The only bad thing I have to say about the crawfish is that we had to throw out a lot of the dead-before cooked crawfish. You can tell by the color of the shell and the meat--blackish, thin shelled, tough meat. You don't want to try and eat that lest it ruins your appetite. The fresh ones are sweet and plump.
