This trip was different. He called me at work. He was standing in the seafood department and there are these huge lobster tails, a pound each, from the Dominican Republic. He wants to buy them; they're already thawed and will need to be used quickly. I said no, so guess what was sitting in my fridge when I got home? Yep, two big, honkin' lobster tails. The price was just too good.
Now generally, I'm not the type to turn down any kind of lobster. But since I had other cooking I was planning to write about, lobster wasn't going to be my first choice....but, gee, lobster. I love it. My favorite is cold water Maine lobster, but after that, any lobster is great lobster. For once, there was so much meat, I actually had enough lobster. Those giant shells are simmering peacefully turning plain water into glorious lobster stock as I digest my dinner of simple sautéed lobster and asparagus.
Life is good, especially when Chuck sneaks off to Costco.
