I am having a Cajun Fais Do-Do this Sunday complete with Cajun Music!

It's a gathering of neighbors to eat good food, play music, and dance and have fun.

I'm doing sausages all day Saturday so I'm going to have

Boudin Blanc
Andouille
Seafood and andouille gumbo
Crawfish etoufee
And creole eggs

Gonna take some Delta Hickabillies and CAJUNIZE them!

I have been to many real fais do-dos in cajun land when we used to visit my mothers family there. They always pulled one off and they are so much fun!

One of my most memorable, (these were 30+ years ago mind you) was once time when Uncle Man and Taunt Mable showed up with a pick up truck slam fulla big ole blue crabs, sacks of oysters, and big ole gulf shrimp.

Some of the men went to shucking oysters and some got the big pots ready to boil the crabs and shrimp, and some played music, while the ladies did some kitchen stuff and minded the kids. (my grandmother had 32 grandkids!)

They took big pots the size of a wheelbarrow and poured out boiled crabs, shrimp, corn and adouillie sausage across the picnic tables and I just thought that is about the coolest thing in the WORLD!

The ladies came with potato salad and bread and seasoned butter and drinks, it was really sumthing to me. No plates, just belly up and make a mess!

Yeah... sounds like a great time (and would make a great backdrop for a movie!).
