Lobster has more or less been the only food in my life that I never get sick of. Ever. There are so many different ways to prepare it, that I can always justify eating it.
Need Breakfast? Lobster Benedict.
Looking for some lunch? Lobster Roll.
Dinner is approaching – I’m starving. What to do? Oh, I don’t know – Linguine & Lobster, Lobster Mac ‘n Cheese, Lobster Pot Pie, or my personal favorite: straight up boiled lobster slapped on a plate with some butter and a side of corn.
There’s really no point to this post other than to share my love for this delicious crustacean. Here are some examples from over the years as to why I love it so much:
You can hang out with them…
…and then kinda ruin their days later with the whole boiling thing.
You can throw them in a pot with some clams, potatoes, corn and crab with a little Old Bay Seasoning and chow down.
You can throw them between a couple slices of bread with lettuce, tomato and bacon. Yes, BACON.
You can throw lobster chunks together with some pasta and cover them all in cheese.
But it has to be HUGE chunks of lobster. This is the most acceptable method.
You can just let it chill out on a bun…
…or give it some fries to hang out with.
You can pile their meat in a bowl and contemplate the many ways to devour them.
You could plop a bunch on a plate and let people start ripping them to pieces.
Or you could keep them all for yourself.
You could make cookies in their likeness.
And then try to explain to a lobster why that’s flattering.
You could serve them on lobster platters.
And stack their traps high.
You could wear them as an accessory.
Or dress up like one to see how it feels.
No matter what you do or how you do it, there’s really no wrong way to make lobster a part of your life. But don’t eat too many – you don’t want to see me throw a fit at a seafood market. It’s not pretty.
