sooo i have always claimed not to like lobster.  i had never *actually* tried it until the day after thanksgiving.  thats right.  black friday i did not go shopping with the hordes.  i ate a lobster.  claws to tail.  and umm..the tail still weirds me out texture/flavor-wise.
but claws.  and little bitty feet.

holy shit.  amazing.
velvety soft and not fishy tasting.  delicious dipped in butter ..or not.  the little dude all cracked and [mostly cleaned] and ready for the eatin

a box of lobsters straight from the ocean, brought home in a subaru.  typical maine.

my parent's rather untraditional lobster cooking method
outdoor propane boiler = no nasty smelling house, no hearing the screech of lobster claws as they boil, and well..where else can you run in and out of the house into the [not snowy!] patio saying "wait, let me check on the lobster"?


  1. Wow! That's pretty intense. I remember when I vacationed in Maine and my brother had his first lobster dinner. It was really funny because he made a mess of himself. :)

    happy comment love day!
