Today was one long laptop fest, so I have no idea why I'm so exhausted, but hello! I was just resting my eyes on the living room sofa. I was NOT ASLEEP.

OK, I was.

Quickly then: I mailed a short note of apology to my mother; then I made lobster salad from the extra lobsters that I only had because she walked out before dinner.

I then made a note to always buy an extra lobster and/or pick a fight with Mom whenever I have lobster. Because the two cold cooked lobsters made delicious lobster salad, nom nom nom.


  1. Lobstah club sandwiches are the best thing ever.


  2. We once visited Maine, and lobster sandwiches and salads were everywhere! Husband was in heaven. Here in Motown? It's a little pricey. I think they use the proceeds to bail out the mayor.

  3. What's yer recipe? C'mon, hand it over. You can't just say "nom nom nom" and leave it at that.


  4. Joke: Mmmm, club sandwiches ... although on the self-indulgence scale, lobster clubs are right up there with pickled lark's tongues.

    MAM: No kidding! A friend of mine in Chicago has the nerve to throw a BYO-Lobster boil in Chicago, where live lobster is $19/lb. Here lobsters are $7/lb., and that's already cooked.

    YFA: OK, here goes:

    3 pounds cold cooked lobster
    half cup diced celery
    half cup diced Vidalia onion

    Mayonnaise dressing: 2/3 cup mayonnaise thinned with a T. or two fresh lemon juice, plus the grated zest of the lemon, plus 1/2 tsp. Old Bay Crab Boil, salt and pepper to taste.

    Mix, chill, serve alone on lettuce leaves or as a lobster roll: hamburger or hot dog roll stuffed with salad mix. A toasted/grilled bun is extra delicious. Add a leaf or two of lettuce if you like. Some add a tomato slice, but I omit such fripperies.

  5. Thanks! It sounds delicious. Especially all that lemony stuff.

    I'm with you on the fripperies.


  6. And Mom's probably making a mental note to save the argument for *after* dinner, next time.

  7. Delish, but where are you getting a Vidalia onion in New Hampshire this time of year?

  8. Teachergirl: Oh, those Georgians act like Vidalians are so local. Trust me; they're all over the place.

    Jen: Yeah! That just shows her.

    YFA: The lemon zest MAKES it.
