Summer Blow Outs

Two weeks ago my friend "Ranger" won a writing contest and 50 pounds of lobster as the prize. A kid friendly group celebration at Winslow Park in Freeport to consume said crustaceans was held. I think I had two bugs and picked though 4 extra bodies.

The this past weekend celebrates the the boys first journey around the sun. That was a quick year. The family gathered like it hasn't in many many years on Saturday. It was bigger than our wedding. Then on the following Sunday Grandpa-G said a local lobster man stopped by and dropped off some more lobsters at no charge. So on Sunday we cooked up 24 lobsters and 20 crabs...with only three eaters. I got through 6 and then shelled 15 into a bowl for lobster rolls and other recipes. Three full pounds of lobster meat. I ended up putting two pounds into the freezer. TWO POUNDS! The third pound will be used for the lobby rolls. Yumm!

I ended up bringing three lob's and 4 crabs over to the Ranger to share the wealth. Its gonna be a hella shellfish week.

I love Maine.


  1. I love a good lobster roll.

    I was out in Montauk this past weekend and my buddy ordered a lobster roll with 1/2 pound of lobster meat one night when we were out for dinner. He said it was the most amazing lobster roll he ever had. No mayo. Just meat, seasoning and butter on a perfect homemade roll.

    I immediately regretted my pan-seared striped bass entree. As did his wife and my girlfriend.

    Definitely the lobster roll for the win.

  2. Nice Earl. Yep the only way a lobster roll should be server is with none to very light mayo.

    We got a killer recipe too.

  3. It was a great party for Lil'Guns... so good to see every one together. FUN!

    Mmmmm... Lobstahhhhhhh!

  4. LOBSTER elicious!

  5. all i can say is "wow"! i love lobster. congrats!

  6. Damn, do you know what it would cost me to go down to the local Red Lobster and order 50 lbs of fresh Maine Lobster? I would have to take out a second mortgage on Dudley's domicile!


  7. Good thing I wasn't there or we would have had to go out and get some more lobster to finish the meal. When is the best time of year to come up that way and enjoy the most lobster?

  8. JDP: it helps to know the lobsterman. we get for 4$ each.

    Tony. I find that end of August is best.

  9. If my wife ever read this, she would divorce me in a minute to move to Maine and pursue you as her next sugar daddy.....(the woman loves Lobster).
