It's National Lobster Day!

Guess what, school ended yesterday @ 3:35 and I'm in Maine! I don't have anything for dinner and in case you haven't heard, it's National Lobster Day! Guess what I'm having for dinner?  Yup, that's right, we're heading out to one of our local fish shops to bring home a delicious crustacean for me!  I decided on a lobster roll - toasted naturally!  My husband decided on homemade clam chowdah!  It was delicious!

No fancy china for this dinner - paper plates, paper napkins, and a smile on my face!  The next time you're in Maine, please join me for dinner.

It's time to pop the blueberry pie in the oven, that's for tomorrow night!

In case you were wondering if lobsters were healthy . . . here's a little nutritional comparison chart!  Lobsters are an incredibly healthy, low cholesterol food, which has fewer calories and saturated fats than both chicken and turkey.

Maine Lobster 72 mg 98 0.1 g
Skinless Chicken 85 mg 173 1.3 g
Skinless Turkey 86 mg 140 0.4 g


  1. Hip Hip Hurrah, school is out! I'm holding out for the blueberry pie, now that sounds delicious!

  2. When I was still teaching, my daughter and I would celebrate the start of the summer break (and our time by the family pool) by painting our tonails 'bad girl red'. Then, we'd spread on the suntan lotion and put on some music and bask by the pool ... until it was time to grill some hotdogs. Your lobster roll is a great celebration too!

    1. Aww, how nice, reminds me of "Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood" when they painted their toes "Rich Girl Red."

  3. Lobsters may be healthy but watch out for all that clarified butter!

  4. Sounds like a fantastic way to start your summer!!

  5. I didn't realize lobster was so low fat. I do enjoy mine with melted bitter though. Great looking lobster to celebrate Lobster Day.

  6. After reading this post I am so hungry! A Lobster Roll and Blueberry Pie. Sounds delicious!I hope you enjoy a wonderful summer!!!!

  7. My goodness I havn't had lobster in ages! I'm so in the mood for one right now!
    Blessings, Joanne
