The copper tape that the stained glass workers use is actual copper.

We just got home from our "city" visit. I saw the specialist about my aortic anurism and the good news is the recent ultrasound shows it's unchanged in the last 6mo. The bad news is that he wants my sons checked, as this may be hereditary.

Anyway, we're ready for the third and final round with the now famous lobsters. We picked up a huge King crab leg at the market to mix in with the lobster seafood salad.

Follow up on the lobster dinners

After thinking about how the lobster video led us astray, I decided to make a comment on the author's website.
This is what I wrote:
Thank you for that detailed method of fixing lobster tails and claws. We were very excited as this was to be an anniversary dinner. After an agonizing struggle to remove the raw meat from the tails in one piece, I watched your video a few times after dinner.and found it has a major error and omission.
First, your friend did not tell you the truth about the lobster. Florida lobsters are called spiny lobsters and do NOT have claws. The lobster you had is a New England cold water lobster.
Secondly, the meat in the tail as you were demonstrating removal was opaque, indicating it was at least partially cooked,. This makes removing the meat infinitely easier.than if the tail meat is raw.
We did prepare it the way you demonstrated, and the results were excellent. We wish you success with your site.
This is the video I am talking about:

DH is having shoulder surgery in 5 days. Having a couple of muscles reattached and the bicep tendon repaired. His right arm will be in a cradle until March. We are getting lots of stuff done before he becomes one-armed. Like finishing a fence and making a winter shelter for his motorcycle. We plan lotsa dancing this weekend!

Unfortunately for the new cook to lobster, he failed to show how to break the claws and remove the meat. Including the meat from the knuckles. And the meat from the knuckles is really sweet. But I do love the way he finished off the tail.
