Mock Your Socks Off Crawfish Etoufee

Mock Your Socks Off Crawfish Etoufee

I didn't take a picture ( sorry, I shared on snapchat and forgot), I'd like to say homemade but someone is going to get all sassy and bend out shape because....I used can soup ( heaven forbid).  Big picture is some nights you need easy and something you family likes that doesn't come out of a wrapper or delivered in box for five dollars.  On those nights, this is one of the recipes I reach for.

1 stalk of Celery, chopped ( my least favorite of ALL veggies)
1 medium Onion, chopped  - to be totally honest I buy the celery and onion already chopped up at the grocery store.
1 1/2 sticks of butter ( original recipe calls for two sticks, its your call)
1 package of Crawfish meat ( found in frozen seafood section) or one pound of fresh peeled crawfish
1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup

Saute the onions and celery in ALL the butter until tender. Add crawfish and soup, season with garlic salt, black pepper and Tony's Chachere's Creole seasoning, heat and EAT.  I said it was easy!   Serve over rice.

Pairs great with a salad and garlic bread.

Love and Limes,

Wonton Crisp

I shared these Won-ton Crisp on snapchat and have had ton of request for the recipe. I originally tried a won-ton pizza crisp recipe from DizzlyMeSkinny (Instagram) so thought why not try the won-tons a bit differently and see what happens. THEY are so good and crunchy and W(weight watchers friendly). 
P.S. The won-ton pizza crisp were good too.

Won-ton Crisp

Package of Won-ton wrappers 
(usually located in produce, ask at your local grocery if you can't find)
Oil Olive
Parmesan Cheese
Dry Powder mix of Ranch Dressing
Spray Cooking Spray (I use Pam)

* Head oven to 350 degrees
* Spray cookie sheet with Cooking Spray
*Place Won-ton wrappers in a single layer onto cookie sheet
*Brush with Olive Oil
*Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese and Ranch
( the amount is up to you, I sprinkle light handed but that is strictly 
a personal choice. I'm not wild about a over bearing ranch flavor)  
*Place in over for 7-9 minutes. Basically till golden brown.
Don't feel like you have to sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and ranch, try any combo you adventures, it is only a won-ton wrapper after all.

Cool and eat! You can put extras or left overs in a airtight container and they are good the next day.
