One of my dear bloggie buds sent me some pictures in an email, of a shindig that he went to that went on for two days in Millville, Delaware, this weekend. Yes that's right, Delaware! When I saw the pictures, I couldn't help but wonder if maybe some of the lost Cajuns of Katrina could have ended up in Delaware.When you're throwing a crawfish boil and a pig roast within twenty four hours, you'd have to think that Cajuns were somehow involved. After all, many people from New Orleans had ended up in every state in the country, after the mother of all storms hit on August 29, 2005'. When I asked my bud about this, he said that the people throwing the party were from the Eastern Shore of Delaware, but were currently working for a company owned and run by Cajuns! So, it all started to make sense to me.
Looked exactly like a party that I went to in March, on the bayou in Abbeville. My friend, Cleo throws a big crawfish boil/pig roast every Spring and it is always a blow out of a good time. Cleo is a gracious hostess and spares no expense to make sure that her guests have a great time. When a band is playing at a person's home, then you know that it's going to be good.
This shindig in Delaware also had a band playing! It looks to me like the friends in Delaware have become honorary Cajuns and they sure know how to throw a party. How does one become an honorary Cajun? One good crawfish boil/pig roast and then you'll understand. Great food, great music, and good old Cajun hospitality, honorary or not.
Let the Good Times Roll , Cher!
