Cajun Crawfish Enchiladas

It's Leaving Louisiana Week and I have some fun and tasty surprises to share with y'all all week long!
First off, let's start with one of the most well known Louisiana Cajun food: crawfish!
The crawfish season typically begins around March and can last all the way through July. 
Luckily for us, they serve 1 lb packs of frozen crawfish tails year round at our grocery stores so we can make meals like these Cajun Crawfish Enchiladas any time we want.
We love hosting and attending crawfish boils and these massive meals always have leftovers.
You have to peel the crawfish right after they are cooked but you can take the peeled tails home and use for a dinner the next day {Crawfish Fettuccine is another fave} or you can freeze them too!
After living in Louisiana for almost 6 years, we have attended our fair share of Cajun Crawfish Boils but you know what? I never get tired of them!
Some people stay traditional with Cajun spices, onions, corn, and potatoes and others like to add shrimp, crab, mushrooms, and even citrus flavors in the boil! 
Both my babies love Louisiana food especially crawfish!
Makes Mama proud!

Moana Hawaiian Seashell Pasta Salad

 Hawaiian Seashell Pasta Salad is a crowd pleasing side dish that is easy to make in just minutes! It can be made ahead and it a great dish to bring to a pool party or potluck! 
Our Moana pool party was a blast and the food was quite delicious! 
I loved creating tropical themed foods to serve the kiddos and this Moana Hawaiian Seashell Pasta Salad was one of the most popular dishes! 
Stay tuned for all the details in the Moana party post later this week. 
This pasta salad is creamy and flavorful with a dressing of Ranch seasoning, sour cream, and mayo. I also add peas, cheese, and -you guessed it- Spam! Not a fan of this popular Hawaiian staple? 
You can substitute ham or even bacon!

Who else has kids that are obsessed with Moana? My kiddos love her and everything about the movie, so we threw a Moana themed pool party last month to say farewell to all their friends before we move. Stay tuned for the party blog post- featuring some of our favorite Etsy shops and their Moana goodies-  this week!

Boobie Cookies for World Breastfeeding Week

Made Boobie Cookies for our local breastfeeding support meeting and I thought they were prefect to share for World Breastfeeding Week. So glad to live in an area where I have so much support from the local breastfeeding community. These cookies are easy to make and perfect for bachelorette parties, breastfeeding groups, and even Mardi Gras!
 I nursed my sweet Stella for over 2 years! We just ended our breastfeeding journey last month but I will always treasure the time I was blessed to breastfeed both my babes!

Summertime Ocean Water Punch

It's Movie Monday again and I'm am excited to share this month's summer themed movie and recipe with y'all- it's Jaws
This horror-thriller movie was released in 1975 and still to this day scares the beejesus out of me!

Since we just hosted a farewell pool party for the girls before we movie next month I though it would be fitting to make an Ocean Water Punch for their shindig and for Movie Monday. This 2 ingredient drink is pretty, tasty, and refreshing too. The perfect summer drink for everyone! I even added gummy sharks to the glasses for a fun touch!

Scroll down for my drink recipe and all the other Jaws inspired crafts and recipes this month.
