The Tale of Two Lobsters

This weekend Glen and I celebrated his birthday.  His birthday isn’t until August 2nd, but we both have to work that day, (opposite shifts), so we celebrated early.  Yesterday we went and saw the new Batman movie and then afterwards we went to Hyvee and bought two live lobsters.  We had never cooked lobster before, but we were confidant that we could cook them up and they would be delicious……and they were!

I love lobster, but have to admit that all of their legs really freak me out.  So Glen had to handle them.  I stood way back and took the pictures :-p


Our plan was to grill the lobsters.  You have to parboil them first.  We used the biggest pan I own….it was just big enough. 


Here they are after boiling for a couple of minutes….waiting to be split in half.


Again, Glen had to do all the messy work…..I could do it if it weren’t for all those damn legs.


Then onto the grill they went.  Oh yeah, we also grilled 4 scallops.  Scallops = eye rolling, mouth watering yumminess.


All done and ready to be devoured.  It was literally lip smacking good!

  1. They look beautiful!!!!! What else did you have with them? Potato or pasta? and what was for desert? You both did an excellent job. Jealous!


  2. We had left over mashed cauliflower and sauteed spinach with mushrooms. We made a lime chipotle dipping oil for the lobster. Have some of the oil left over and am planning on putting it on some fish for tomorrows dinner.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
