Recipe requested by Sandy Posted at the message board, under Request Recipes:

"Here's a hard one. I have no idea what this was but I loved it!
When I was a child we were in Ft. Polk. An old man used to have us collect crayfish (we called them crawdads) for him and he would give us a quart jar that had the meat from the crayfish and God knows what else. He stuffed the meat into the back shell and then poured some kind of tomato sauce over it. It was served on top of rice? I can still taste how good it was 40 years later but don't know what it was. Any help here?"

No answer for this one yet, can someone help?

Recipe Requested by Mari_trahan:

"My family ate at a restaurant called Black's Seafood Bar. We tried some seafood tamales that were spicy they tasted awesome. I would like to make them for us at home. If you can help I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance."

British Tomatoes Joke

One day an older woman walked into a supermarket produce
department. She saw the produce manager working on a display of corn, and went up to him, and said, "I would like two pounds of tomatoes, please." The produce manager turned to her, and
said, "I'm sorry madam, but we don't have any tomatoes." So the woman thanked him, and left.

The next afternoon, she came back to the store, walked up to the produce manager, and said, "I'd like a couple, nice, big
tomatoes, please." The manager turned to her, and said, "Wasn't you here yesterday, asking for tomatoes?" The woman said, yes she was. The manager said, "Well, like I said yesterday, we don't have any tomatoes." The woman thanked him, and left.

The next day, she went up to him, and said, "Could I have a
pound of tomatoes, please?" The manager said, under his
breath, "pain-in-the-neck"...
