We took some time tonight away from packing to have dinner with Tiffany and our friend Robert. We headed out to Canyon Lake to a place called Plooky's Boiling Pot. I should have taken some pictures of this place. It is an old building with cement floors and no AC. It kind of reminds me of Pavlas Tavern in Moulton. This is what our food looked like when they threw it on the table. This is just one pile of it...crawfish, shrimp, corn, potatoes, and sausage...spicy.
This stuff is so yummy. Tiff an I got a medium batch and Bobby and Robert got theirs spicy. This stuff goes great with a good beer, and when you order a beer at this place, they bring it to you already in a koozie...its wonderful!
When we were all done, all that was left was a pile of shells and trash. After we were done eating, we were all picking on Robert because his pile was so much smaller than ours. He seemed to be eating as much as us though. Then we all realized that Robert was eating the shrimp WITH THE SHELL, so his pile had considerably less shells. I'm not kidding...with the shell! He would tear off the tails and eat the whole darn thing...shell and all. We peeled some shrimp for him to show him how much yummier they were without the shell. I couldn't believe that in all of his 31 years on this earth no one told him to peel the shrimp before eating it! At least he asked Bob how to get into the crawfish. Needless to say, we picked on him the whole way home about pooping out those shells later. It's probably gonna hurt! Before we even got home, he was complaining that he thought he could feel the shells in his intestines. We'll check on him tomorrow....he might be in a little pain. Here is a pic of the final result.
