I have survived and returned from several days with the extended family down in one of the the old-line, Maine coastal “cottage” communities.
However, I am left with a bit of work to do.
The photo shows what you get to take home if you live in Maine and have lobster dinner with people from California who are clueless on how to pick over a lobstah… [Now admittedly, I did stuff them full of clam chowder, steamers, corn, and homemade bread as well. By the time we got around to the lobsters, stomachs were getting full. … I will leave the degree of premeditation involved to your imagination.]
Yes, there is a bit of labor involved, however, there is probably between two and 3 pounds of lobster meat there for the taking. And then you boil the shells down for lobster bisque. With this much unexpected lobster bounty to be dealt with, I may even have to breakdown and try the ridiculous sounding, but trendy, “lobster mac & cheese”.
