Yesterday was my 27th birthday. I’m not looking forward to getting old anymore, but it was a great day overall.
I had to work, but Amanda and I were able to go out and eat at Colton’s steakhouse in Russellville for lunch. We both had the sirloin tips which were awesome. Colton’s is one of the few places around where we’re able to eat real food that isn’t breaded or covered in some form of questionable sauce.
For dinner Amanda had bought “crawfish” from the butcher and rib-eye steaks.
I always thought crawfish were small, brown or red, freshwater shrimp — but these things she brought home were gigantic.
Basically, what I’m saying is that I have no idea what these are. They were labelled as ‘Fresh Canadian Crawfish,’ but some quick Google Images pictures leads me to believe they are, in fact, lobster based on their size and the size and shape of the claws. Do they have enormously oversized crawfish in Canada? Anyone know?
Preparation was as easy as steaming them in a little water, butter, and a few slices lemons.
They were served up with a rib-eye steak (rare), and a baked potato with butter. (Yes. A potato. In case you weren’t aware… Some guy, who does some TV show, said they were OK to eat again.)
After dinner Amanda whipped out a paleo ice cream cake. Amazing, right?
Cake recipe will be posted once she gives it to me.Did you like reading this? Then please leave us a comment or subscribe to our RSS Feed.
