Bring with you some of that good seafood available from your neck of the woods (or should I say swamp
) and we'll create something together.
Oh if it were only possible. Seafood has a premium price attached to it around here, even our locally available trout, salmon, perch, and such. I sometimes envy the variety of food available in other parts of the nation.
Keep posting recipes like that and a bunch of your DC freinds just might find a way to invade your backyard

crayfish...? what's a "crayfish?" just kidding...
louisiana is known as the sportsman's paradise... can you imagine where i live...?
i can drive 35 min to the west and catch huuuuuge bass, white perch, etc.
i can drive 25 min to the south and get brackish water white perch and redfish... another 15 minutes, and i can catch speckled trout, etc.
all along those sleepy, south louisiana highways, you'll see numerous shrimp markets, crab & fish markets, etc. ALL FRESH AND RIGHT OFF THE BOAT when in-season. during crawfish season, i just drive to my buddy's farm in crowley, louisiana, get in one of his boats, and catch my own.
for beef, the local butcher is 5 miles from my house "down the bayou..." for pork & chicken, i get it from another butcher that's about 7 miles, "up the bayou." the only other direction to get food is "across the bayou," and that's my Mom's house.
i can get almost everything i want fresh and dirt cheap compared to supermarkets.
no need to gather-up your friends for an invasion... i'm from louisiana, all you have to do is show up with a big appetite, and we'll "have a good time."
