When our daughter Mary and I went to visit Mum in NS three years ago, another lobster treat awaited us - and we drove 40 miles from where we were staying just to have it! Lobster rolls...McLobster... McDonalds best creation! Only available in the Maritime provinces and New England and only in the summer! To die for! Large chunks of real tail and claw meat, mixed with mayo, arranged in lettuce, on a hot dog bun...my mouth waters just thinking of it! It's reason enough to go back to Nova Scotia in the summer.
Mary loved it!
Even Mum enjoyed it!
For our anniversary a couple years ago, our daughter Sara arranged via internet for a fresh lobster dinner to be sent to us from Nova Scotia. It arrived via air and contained two live lobsters, clam chowder, rolls, shrimp cocktail, even the butter to dip the lobster in. It was the first time I had to cook live lobster! Easy! It was delicious. A wonderful anniversary gift for two displaced Maritimers.
Ready for the pot.
That reminds me of a funny story. When we lived back east a visitor who had discovered the joys of fresh lobster had some live lobsters crated and sent home to his parents in the southwest USA. The parents received them all right but called to tell their son that they had to throw the lobster out because it was bad...it was green-brown instead of red! He should have told them before they got the lobster that they don't turn red till they're cooked. I wonder how many other people have done that!
I've got way off track here. The main reason for this post is to show you these very creative lobsters that we saw all around Halifax on our last visit. I wish I had taken pictures of more of them. They're great!
And another one on the Historic Properties boardwalk
Now lets all meet at Red Lobster for dinner!!!
