We like to find new foods for our children to try. The last time we had crawdads was years ago when we were visiting New Orleans. These were previously cooked and frozen so we just threw them in a pot of boiling water 'till they were heated through and then it was time to eat.
|It's creepy to pick one of these things up and break it open to eat it. Ugh, I don't like looking my dinner in the face!|
I served them with cabbage, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs and veggies with dip.
The children were excited to try them and didn't have any hesitation in grabbing one to break open(unlike me). Elijah, the boy not holding up a crawdad, doesn't like shrimp and gets sick when he eats it even though a blood test has shown he's not allergic so he doesn't eat shellfish anymore. He got a chicken thigh instead.
The little boys were fascinated.
Baby didn't eat any either but she did want to check one out.
And here is the aftermath. The little boys were eating claw meat.
And that was our fun and gluten-free Saturday night dinner.
