My Lobster Courier

The Hub waltzes in, fresh off the plane from Portland, Maine where he was visiting his mom for the past four days.  He is carrying a medium sized black bag that is not his regular carry-on.  He hands it to me, it is very cold.  Inside....two beautiful live lobsters!!!!


I love lobster and I cannot believe he is so sweet and carted them back for me on the plane today.  The cat was especially intrigued as the lobster tried to crawl around on the table.


You know, it's so much work to eat the lobster after they've been cooked, but it is SO worth it.  All that cracking and squeezing and poking to get every delicious piece of meat from the shell made me think that perhaps this would be a good entry for the "work and play" challenge at Ramblings and Photos this week.



The little sea creatures were delicious!  Thanks babe, and I am so glad you are home!!

I love lobster - but I have this thing - I don't want to see it alive before I eat it - you are braver than me

There's definitely something rewarding about eating a lobster after all that work! :)
(I have yet to figure out if I'll still eat lobster on my vegetarian diet... it's quite the decision... i'm leaning towards yes... I'm a sucker for a good lobster ravioli!)
Hope you enjoyed them :)

These are great! I love a good lobster bisque but I admit that I'm not usually willing to put in the effort when it comes to fresh lobster.

Carrying lobsters on a plane...now that is love. The look on the cat's face made me giggle out loud.

Lobster from Maine....nothing like it. We aim to please. Portland is about 1/2 hour from me, so those beauties may have come from a nearby trap.
While poking through all the shells for the meat is a lot of work-there's nothing else quite like it. I haven't had my summer lobster yet this year-maybe that's why my mood of late is off. :) Hope they were super delicious.

And yes....they actually sell lobster in the Portland Airport. I bet I could get you a better price though.
