Our dinner tonight

The big red crustacean (that had been lurking in our freezer for at least a year and just had to go) was supposedly Canadian.

But how did they know for sure?

Do you think they checked his passport?

Ooo. Lobster. I never get lobster because B would shriek and scream like a girl. He's all freaked out that lobster and crabs look like aliens.

He don't know nuttin' about good eatin'.

They could probably tell by his accent. He said "aboot" instead of "about."

Sal and Sandra - Wow, both able to spot a Canadian lobster at a thousand paces. :-) You guys are good!

Dixie - well they DO kind of look like aliens, but I bet they taste a lot better. At least this one was dead and frozen when we got it.

Personally, I couldn't eat Sponge Bob's pal no matter where he's from.

This is so funny. I watch the lobster fishermen from my window as I type. Maybe it was one that came off one of their boats!
We had lobster last week. Was yours good?

Well, I can't quite make it out. There is a resemblance to the photo on the packaging. Furthermore, the text is in German with a Canadian flag. Does that make it an official document?

Betty - I know how you looooove seafood. ;-) but SpongeBob hangs around with a starfish and a squid. I'd eat the squid, but maybe not the starfish.

Cathy - that IS funny. It probably was from one of the ships, too. It tasted really good, considering how long it had been in the deep freeze. I guess you guys get your fill of lobster over there. Once when we were in B.C. there was some kind of dispute among the Atlantic fishermen and lobster was dirt cheap so Mr. M went wild.

Canadian Swiss - you know, that MIGHT just be the new official expat lobster ID card! But the poor guy won't be needing it any longer. :-)

Your dinner "tonight!" Someone was lucky. If I eat lobster once a year in a restauraunt (I don't care where it's from) I feel lucky :)

How fun! Hope your boys liked the photo op as much as you. What a dish!

I haven't eaten Lobster for a while. I used to eat it a lot in my Scuba Diving days. They are pretty tricky to pick up underwater due to those very dangerous claws.

The best way I found to cook them was to throw them on the barbie :)

Haddock - Yes, I don't know that I'd like to wrangle with a live one with those giant claws of theirs. We bought that one from Aldi. :-)

Ginnie - it is a fun dish. Boy9 won't touch either mussels or lobster but but he wanted to keep the claws as a souvenir. Boy12 is more adventurous and will try just about anything.

Tonight we had "use up all the old vegetables in the fridge" for dinner! :-)
