Lesson on how to eat a crawfish: “First check to see if the tail of the crawfish is curled all of the way up. If not, it may mean that the crawfish was already dead before it was cooked (although this is debatable). Just to be safe- don’t eat these ones. Next, you need to remove the head from the tail by pinching the head between two of your fingers with one hand and then told the tail with your other hand. You give the head a twist until it comes off. The head should twist off easily. If it doesn’t, the crawfish may not be fully cooked. To eat the tail meat, pinch the shell that covers with the tail with your fingers to crack it all over. Remove the shell and discard it and pull out the meat inside of the tail. If you want to be really hardy, and if the claws are big enough, you can crack open the claws and suck out the meat and the juices.” Thank you for teaching me, you three, and for being the best hostesses one could ask for.
