Lacie Ring: How Brian and I Cooked Crawfish Pie Together {Foodie Friday}

 

Crawfish Pie easypeasypleasy foor arkansaswomenbloggers.com

I had cut the first piece of the Crawfish Pie which is always the hardest. I set the slice aside to let it cool. Steam in a camera lens just doesn’t work. When I came back to start snapping pictures, someone had taken a huge bite out of the middle of the pie. I thought I would just die. All I could do was laugh and pull out two more slices. That’s the kind of fun that ensues when you are cooking and blogging at deer camp.

Crawfish Pie is on the menu tonight but first a little back story on how this recipe came about.

So, when Debbie said she needed volunteers for the Foodie Friday posts, I knew I wanted to help. I loved her idea of theming each month to a song. I noticed February was themed towards the song…Jambalaya on the Bayou. Lightbulb moment, I have a friend who lives in New Orleans and he could help me out with an easy Cajun dish. I emailed this idea to Debbie and she responded back with…”Is your idea to cook together with your friend?” I figured, that was something that could be arranged. The only problem, he lives in NOLA and I live in Arkansas. Oh the logistics. I called up my buddy Brian and we put together a plan.

Our only chance to meet up was at Brian’s family deer camp. This worked perfect for me being that it was only a couple hours from my house and the hubby and kiddo could get in a little hunting too. Did I mention, I know Brian because he’s my best friend’s brother-in-law? Yep, that’s right! This was also a chance to hang out with my bestie too. Y’all…she calls me Betty Crocker and I call Brian Guy Fieri. I’m sure you can see why…lol.

With our plan in place, we were ready to meet up back in January. Low and behold, the only snow we’ve had all winter decided to hit that very weekend. I thought, well, how are we going to get this Crawfish Pie recipe done together if the snow stops us from meeting up? I guess I should tell you that our big hurdle was the fact that we were taking our camper. Pulling a camper through snow and ice did not sound appealing. It was either leave a day early to beat the snow or Brian and I were going to have to skype to make the recipe together. Brian had already made his 6 hour drive so I was thankful my hubby had the fore sight to leave a day early. We had easy driving and Brian and I could still cook together. Yay!

Without further ado…Brian’s Crawfish Pie! If you love Pot Pie and Cajun food then this recipe is for you!

This recipe couldn’t have been possible without my person Guy Fieri. Big thank you goes out to my buddy Brian for the effort put forth to make his Crawfish Pie with me for ARWBal. We had so much fun cooking together or should I say me watching Brian cook…I did wash the dishes though.

    WooHoo—a bunch of hot pepper! This should be amazing! And I have a grinder!!! Hope that’s okay? 😉 The only thing we lack, here, is soggy soil for the little crawdaddies! Will have to find a vendor, as I’d like ’em fresh, right?
