Crawfish Boil Turkey Thanksgiving

There are tons of old and new traditions that people have incorporated into the list of menu items for Thanksgiving. Frying turkeys started to become very popular about twenty years ago so you often see social media filled with pictures of people frying up turkeys outside. That's just one example of all of the cool things that we do with food!

Some people still go the traditional route with turkey roasted in the oven, but with our ability to use our amazing seasonings in this area, our turkeys taste incredible. The same goes for the sides that surround the turkey.

We make incredible food, and Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks for that food and all our blessings, but what happens if you FORGET SOMETHING YOU NEED FOR A RECIPE?
