Lobster Dinner at Home

Our New Years Day family tradition is to start the year off with a delicious meal – lobsters at home. January 1st is actually my Dad’s birthday, and this has always been what he wanted to do to celebrate.

When gathering and celebrating, a charcuterie of meats and cheeses is always a nice way to start.

 

Some tips for eating lobster at home:

  • See if your grocery store will steam the lobsters for you – saves time and you know it will be cooked to perfection.
  • Make sure you have the proper utensils: Kitchen shears, lobster cracker, and seafood fork.
  • Melted butter and a lemon wedge are a great accompaniment to lobster.
  • Have a big bowl on table for discarding the shells, and paper towels on hand for mess.

I served this meal with shrimp cocktail appetizer, as well as sides of mashed potatoes, corn and asparagus. Delicious!

Christina is an odd combination of a perfectionist that insists on things happening organically, or according to nature. She wants to have all the control, yet leave life up to chance, and it is a concept that she admittedly constantly struggles with. Her love for her family puts a spark in her eye that only happens with movie effects. She has three best friends from childhood and does not see a need for more. A self proclaimed hermit, she laughs at the hypocrisy of her love for party planning. Christina’s message is the importance of slowing down, and reclaiming joy by surrounding yourself with people and things you love. "I am going to make everything around me beautiful," she says, "that will be my life."
