Four couples are sharing a house on Cape Cod -- this was our dinner last night -- eleven pounds!
For people who live on the prairie -- it was pure bliss!

Looks like a delicious dinner!
Does this hat make my butt look big?
Linderhof, I rarely get violent - actually, rarely even get loud - BUT that would push my buttons! I would do sleight of hand like never seen before and distract the others with drop-de*ad delicious appetizers while I devoured that beauty.
Okay, only in my dreams. In truth, I would cook it oh so very carefully and share with all - hoping they would appreciate it as much as I did!
Reminds me of a beloved sister-in-laws reaction to a special lobster dinner for my brother's 50th birthday (only the four of us) where we bought lobsters that cost way beyond what we should have spent as my brother loves it as much I do - and she, gamely, said "just give me a bottle of ketchup and I'll get it down!" Nothing I said would dissuade her - I had already prepared an alternate main entree for her - but, no, she had to "prove" she was game.
I wanted to grab her portion so badly - she did manage to "choke" it down - dousing each bite with ketchup!
To this day I doubt that she has a clue that her "portion" cost over $40 and all of us would have given anything to have had it instead!
So all I can say is yum... We don't get such things in land-locked Idaho! This message has been edited. Last edited by: Idaho Resident,
IR -- we don't get such things in land locked Kansas either! That's why this was such a special and yummy dinner! And the price . . . a small lobster would cost that much from where we are from!
And once you've tasted fresh . . . I'm not sure I'll ever be able to eat frozen again!

I'm on the Cape all summer and the lobsters have been so inexpensive this summer. I think we've had them 5 times already. I usually eat only the big claw and then cut up the rest to make lobster salad to take to the beach the next day. Have to have it on "New England style" hot dog roll grilled in butter!!
Ohhhh myyyyyy word!!!! I am soooooo jealous
Hubby/I visited Maine couple years ago and gorged on as much lobster as we could...what a wonderful trip it was!!!
Since we live in FL now, I doubt we'll ever go back...but it was indeed one of our fave trips!!!
Wow! That's one BIG crawfish!!!!
Martha, eating lobsters is truly one of the best treats about living in Maine. It had gotten down to 3.99 a lb in certain places in my area this summer. Only negative, a pain to get rid of shells. When we have it I save the butter we dip the lobster meat in and use that as a base for chowders and other seafood dishes.
I also had a FREE lobster here in Sarasota. There is store here in Sarasota and on your birthday they will steam a lobster for you and it is free. You must pay if it is bigger then the 1 1/4 pound but I was thrilled. It was my DH'S birthday but he hates lobster so I make out twice a year.
Any chance you could share the name of the restaurant??? I live on the other side of FL, but might want to make a road trip there for my or DH's b-day...MMmmmm!!!!
CJO, LotsALobster 8780 S. Tamiami trail. They also have haddock and other sea food for sale. You need to place your order for fish that A.M. or the night before.I think Publix Market also has lobster and they also will steam it for you.The price isn't TOO bad around $10.00 a pound but cheaper when there is a sale. I like to pull out all of the lobster, sprinkle with butter, cover top with buttered cracker crumbs( just a little) and brown in broiler quickly!
