This pot of fresh Atlantic Lobster looks divine, does it not? Sigh....wish this was sitting on top of my stove getting ready to be a meal. Sadly, it is not.
My dear Dtr. and her boyfriend are back East in Halifax Nova Scotia visiting his family. And yes, they are about to sit down and eat these fresh 2 lb. lobsters for dinner. Mercy....I want me some lobster bad! She sent me these photos she took with her cell phone. Trying not to cry here.....
They purchased 6 fresh 2 lb. Lobsters for $55.00 - roughly $8-$9.00 a lb. Here on the West Coast - (Pacific Ocean), we pay $35.00 for one, yes, one 2 lb. Lobster - which are flown in over ice.
Why is it, we always want what we do not have? Dang....I still want me some Lobster! Maybe I can entice my DH into taking me to a very expensive seafood restaurant downtown....pray for me? (DH does not eat shell fish of any kind - I have to convince him that Seafood restaurants do in fact serve steak and chicken too!)
I soooo want to dive in!
