I've received a few comments about my post on the fact that I do not like to sit down and enjoy a shovelful of crawfish for a meal. I apologize, but will not relent.
I understand there are people in the world who do enjoy this particular delicacy, and I support them in their decision to sit down with a yard of those little critters and enjoy.
From what I could see from the tables around me, Crawfish are something you had to grow up eatin. There seemed to be quite a technique to eating those rock dwellers. There was so much breaking and blowing and sucking going on, I thought I was in a 1st year glass blowing class.
It just seemed like too much work.
I'm from Philadelphia and our city boasts of producing the best Scrapple in the world. Many people who haven't grown up eating this delicious processed block of scraps off the butcher shop floor don't know what it is and think I am crazy to ingest just one bite. Let me give you a tip, nobody knows what it is. It's probably best we don't know.
So, to crawfish lovers everywhere, enjoy. Next time your in Philly, try some scrapple and maybe I'll attack some crawfish.
