Our dinner table was filled with these small red creatures today. Unfortunately we haven't been fishing them ourselves, they are imported from Spain. We have a tradition in Sweden with Crayfish party but we just had a cozy dinner with our children. With many activities going on in the family all the time I think that all of us appreciate the time when we're gathered around the table. Dinner is so much more than just eating and now when the children are older the conversations reach another level.

how wonderful!

Wow Ella, I have never seen crayfish that big! They look like lobsters.

I agree that some of the best times with my family were having great conversations around the dinner table.

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

Those are the BIGGEST crayfish I have ever seen! OH MY!

Yes, I agree with you...meals together are SO important...for good conversation and togetherness!

That sounds wonderful, Ella! So many families today just do not take that time, but I too remember endless discussions around the table growing up. My sister was quite a bit older than me and she and my dad would get into politics sometimes, leaving me totally bored. But, hey, I still remember it! Those crayfish are amazing!!

Ms. Becky said...

oh they! at first glance I thought them lobsters, because of the color. I love when you share your traditions with us. I looked up The Guy In The Grave Next Door on Netflix and that movie isn't available in any form. I'm going to keep looking though. thanks for the tip Ella. I'm really liking that actor. he has a very expressive face. happy week to you!

JMW said...

Ooo, those look good! And, they're huge - like lobsters! I have friends who live along the southeastern coast of the U.S., as well as in New Orleans, and they have crayfish, also known as "crawfish" boils. They cook the crawfish with corn on the cob, potatoes,onions and sometimes throw shrimp and sausage in there. You lay down newspaper over a large outdoor table and pour the contents of the boil on there; then everyone eats. Yum!

I seldom leave a response, however i did a few searching and wound up here "Crayfish".
And I do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind.

Could it be just me or does it look like some of the remarks come across like coming from brain dead individuals?
:-P And, if you are posting at other online social sites, I'd like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

I think that what you published was very reasonable.
However, what about this? what if you added a little content?
I am not suggesting your content is not good., but what
if you added something that grabbed a person's attention? I mean "Crayfish" is kinda vanilla. You might peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they write
post headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add
a video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you've written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout
of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
