Lobster Roll Pictures a-plenty!

As promised...lots and lots of Lobster Roll and Whoopie pictures. These are making me want lunch already!

Last Night's Dinner & Lunch Today- Lobster Rolls!

Last night's dinner was phenomenal. It had been too long since I have had a really good lobster roll. And I still had left overs for lunch today :)
I have some really great foodie pictures to share, so once I have those in order I'll post them as well. Happy eating foodies!

1 lb. cooked lobster meat, thawed
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tsp. lemon juice
1 Tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
salt & pepper to taste

If using our Lobster Meat by the Pound, drain off any liquid left from thawing, but there is no need to rinse the meat. Cut any larger pieces of meat into smaller chunks. Combine the lobster meat, with rest of the ingredients. Cover and chill for one hour.
For Lobster Rolls: With 4 long French or hoagie-style sandwich rolls, slice the bread lengthwise, toast or grill until slightly crunchy on the outside, about 5 minutes in the oven at 425. Spoon in the lobster filling and it's ready. Serve with kettle chips, slaw and a whoopie pie for the true down east experience.

My Whoopie Pies Have Arrived!

My Whoopie pies just arrived! The package was just so well done, and the whoopie pies looked so good, I was compelled to take some pictures of them. Enjoy!

Lobster Rolls and Whoopie Pies & What to Make Next

Good Wednesday morning Foodies! It's finally going to be half decent out today here in Chicago. The next few days are going to be even nicer. Tonight, I'm making Classic Lobster Rolls for dinner and I'll be taking lots of pictures and a video on how to make them at home. They are super easy to make especially since the Lobster meat I'm using is already cooked. The other thing that I like about our Lobster meat by the pound is the fact that it is all claw and knuckle meat,and that is my favorite part of a Maine Lobster. The tails are good, but the claws are just so much more tender and flavorful. Getting a big pound of this meat is really tempting the fates...I might just start snacking on it right out of the bag before it even makes it to the recipe! I also got a pack of Whoopie pies to have for dessert after the Lobster rolls. It's the only acceptable dessert you can have after a lobster roll, unless it's a home made blueberry pie. Unfortunately I don't have the spare time to bake a pie from scratch...I didn't even have the time to make the whoopies from scratch either haha. But I'm also not going to try and make a dozen assorted flavors of whoopie pies in one day, so buying these delicious little beauties is the best way to go.
Whoopie Pies... I don't think I could make them look that good if I spent all day and night!

I'm at a loss for what to prepare for the next video, so I decided the best thing to do would be to ask my readers! There is a poll in the nav bar. Speak up and let me know what I should make next! Well, time to buckle down for another day. I'll be thinking of Lobster Rolls and whoopies till then...happy eating Foodies!
