I'm sorry RB. But lobsters in these here parts are a common food. I don't know about other families, but we don't consider it a treat. Just another means of getting protein into our diet.

You get two huge lobsters, potato salad, corn on the cob and strawberry shortcake for $25 a person. I like to bring the shells home and boil them for seafood stock. Great for a clam or fish chowder. I usually only eat one of the lobsters and remove the meat from the second. Bring that home for lobster salad. I pass on the corn and the shortcake. Next time I am pigging out on lobster salad, I will be think of you.
