For a food and travel blog, it seems appropriate to use the word 'plate' in the title. To 'have a lot on one's plate' is a popular idiom. It is literally what you eat off of and figuratively what you use to describe all you do in life.
Since eating and creating meals are easier to do than traveling, this blog consists mostly of the former. I cannot begin to tell you how travel affects my perceptions of the world and of home. It's truly a constant learning experience.

Crawfish Shack Seafood
Meal #2 - 10 large shrimps, 2 hush puppies, cajun corn on the cob, and cajun red potatoes
Hopefully you know by now that a friend of mine owns Crawfish Shack Seafood off of Buford Highway. Hopefully you also know that there will be a wait whenever you go (both to take your order and to deliver your food), so you should try to make it during off-peak times. I ordered the ten shrimp meal and it took a while to get it. The employees share the blame with the small kitchen, which is ill-equipped to keep up with such high demand. Unfortunately, at this time there are no plans to expand the kitchen. There are, however, rumors that the owner is scouting a second location. Crawfish Shack has a fairly active Facebook page - check it out here. Food's still great - I still like eating here. You just need to budget time for the meal.
