In my efforts to try and make it feel like Spring I found an awesome recipe in my Mr. Food Weeknight Quickies cookbook. When I started to read this recipe all that came to mind was having tons of friends over and serving this meal up spread out on old news paper like I see on TV. I love how simple the ingredients are and that the entire flavor comes from the spice bag you cook it in. One look at the final dish I swear I could feel the warm sun shining on my face and a slight Spring breeze blowing through my hair.

4 (3oz.) - Zatarain's Crawfish, Shrimp & Crab Boil
2 Tbs. - Chopped Garlic

1 (16oz.) - Frozen Pearl Onions or Boiling Onions

Combine the first 4 items in a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Add taters, onions, corn and lemons; return to a boil and cook for 15 minutes or until taters are tender. Add the shrimp; cover and cook for another 5 minutes. Drain the mixture; remove and discard the spice bags and lemons. Serve with fresh lemon wedges.
