Friday the 13th dinner - 7/13/2018

I went down to the lobster pound and picked up two lobsters and a couple of pounds of steamers. Add a can of Bush's Grillin Beans and some cole slaw for a New England summer dinner.

I'm anticipating lobster prices will be dropping - good for me, bad for the lobstermen. Maine exports 20% of the lobster catch to China. China just slapped a tariff on American lobster, so demand will be dropping. I watched an interview with a 29 year old lobsterman. He catches 50,000 lbs. of lobster per year, so a $0.10 drop in the wholesale price of lobster will reduce his income by $5,000 per year. Hopefully he won't lose his boat.

Sis invited us to lunch to christen her new Weber electric grill with lamb shish kebab. I also grilled some red peppers and tomatoes. Sis made lyonnaise potatoes, salad and a cake for dessert.

As a result of all that, we don't expect to be very hungry for dinner so will probably just pick at stuff later on.

After I was done at the hospital, Himself drove us over to our beef guy to get a nice steak - boneless NY strip was on special and looked good. Then he figured since the really good Italian bakery was just one block over, we went to get the above lobster tail to share for dessert. However, by the time we got home neither of us were interested in eating, Steak for tomorrow, but tonight I feasted on scrambled eggs with ham and cheese, rye toast, and some grape tomatoes. After not having anything to eat since midnight Wednesday, it tasted gourmet.
