Trust me Kayelle, when you live somewhere where you can buy them cheap for a while each summer the bloom can come off the rose. I used to crave them when we lived in OH; not so much now. Besides, each $1.99 a pound gross ends up being about $12.00 a pound usable meat. Took me an hour to completely clean three of them a couple weeks back - all for 1/2 pound of meat. *sigh* For that money I prefer scallops for $9.99 and no real effort.

Yep. Stop and Shop went to $2.99 because of Market Basket's 3.99 deal.

And now some Stop and Shop's have gone down to $1.99.

And not all soft shells. Quite a deal !!

Lobster on my menu this weekend... Again.

You lot don't know how lucky you are. It's years since I had fresh lobster. In fact it's years since I saw a live lobster on the slab in a fishmonger's shop. No-one in the UK lives more than 75 miles from the sea but it's said that most of the shellfish caught in British waters is exported to France. The really crazy thing is that apparently most lobsters served in up-market British restaurants are imported from Canada and the US.
