Lobster Rolls

I’m selfish.

Handsome is in school again for a few nights a week along with some online classes as well. Between work and day to day life, it’s a heavy load. I love that he is in school and am so happy to see him doing well. Secretly, I even love Monday night alone as my night to catch up on blogging things (try to read other blogs, watch horrid TV, blast the speakers and just unwind all by myself). But I wait on the steps when it’s time for him to come home, long after the sun has set to eat dinner late, relax and drift off to sleep.

Monday nights though, I occasionally sneak a little something in just for me when it comes to dinner. If I wanted for Handsome to come, I wouldn’t be eating until 10PM (and there are a lot of nights we wait for one another). So, every now and then, if I already have something in the refrigerator that he’ll enjoy,  I can splurge on myself.

Shame the boy wont touch any sort of shellfish because I love it all. Oh well, more for me… >.>

Truth is, this was my first lobster roll and I wish I could say I loved it… But, I didn’t. Something about the texture just didn’t jive with me the way I wanted it to. I wanted to love this. I wanted to want to scoop the bowl clean in a hidden fat kid moment that no one would know about – it just wasn’t there. I was told that a fresher lobster would probably make all the difference in the world, and I am sure that is true. So, I guess I will just have to try this again, when I am on the coast of New England watching the fishermen bring in their haul (here’s to dreaming).

    This reminds me of Andy and I! He has school Mondays and Thursdays and we wait for eachother to eat around 10ish. Only difference is, I would definitely have to wait for him on this one – he loves shellfish!

    I was just in maine this weekend and had 2 lobsters! One for dinner and one as a roll for lunch.

    I don’t chop my meat for lobster rolls. I pull it by hand. Not l ike I suspect that to make a difference but I don’t chop things ever, unless it’s a salad. (I have quirks!)

    These certainly look tasty, but that stinks that you didn’t enjoy them! I hate when I have an idea that sounds like it would be so good, but then it doesn’t turn out like expected! You’ll have to let us know if the fresh lobster makes a difference!

    Definitely do try it when you come to New England! There is a place on the Cape called the Lobster Pot in Provincetown. The town is…interesting…it is right smack dab in the middle of a very large gay community. I personally love going there but it makes some people uncomfortable haha. Anyways, the lobster rolls there are to die for! http://www.ptownlobsterpot.com/

    Sorry your inner fat kid wasn’t satisfied…I’m sure that will come back to haunt you cause we all know what a little bitch he can be. Consolation: the rolls look flipping ace. Buzzed :)

    I think your lobster rolls look amazing. Maine lobster rolls typically only have mayo or butter added to them. Sometimes few ingredients are the best route to go even if they are as pretty to look at.
