It all started back in 1973 when the NCAA handed down sanctions against the basketball team and the university decided to redirect fees it had collected to support the team into a fun day for students.
In South Louisiana, two things seem to hand in hand with Easter: Crawfish and Gold Brick Eggs. Sure a lot of people eat fish sticks, ham and jelly beans, but crawfish and Elmer's are a part of nearly every Acadiana family's Good Friday or Easter menu.
After today's Blue Plate Special, Polk Salad Annie, I thought about an old Elvis Presley movie called 'King Creole' which was filmed partly in New Orleans. In the song, 'Crawfish,' Elvis is joined by Kitty White.
The Louisiana Seafood for Life website is inviting everyone to vote for their favorite Louisiana Seafood dish and their favorite Louisiana Seafood Restaurant. Five Acadiana restaurants are in the running!
Well, it's not really in Lafayette, but THE event of the weekend in Acadiana is the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival. Gates open at 4:30 on Friday and the party lasts all weekend long. Jazz Fest also continues through Sunday in New Orleans.
"As we prepare for Good Friday, I thought I'd give y'all a quick and easy dish that you can fix in 30 minutes. It will be sure to please your family and friends. Have a blessed Easter and remember what the season is truly about!"
