The Internet Kitchen: Anniversary Lobsters

by Nick

Betsy and I don’t go out to eat very often, but we almost always go out for birthday dinners and anniversary dinners.

Betsy and I were married two years ago and these two years have gone really fast!

Instead of going out to dinner this year, we are doing something different.

We ordered two decent sized lobsters from Maine and the company is overnighting them to us tonight so we can have them tomorrow.  I’ve never cooked live lobster before, but it seems straightforward enough.

I’m planning on having some sides with the lobsters – maybe some hush puppies and fries or some sort of salad.

If anyone has any tips, leave a comment!

Mushroom Short Rib Lasagna - I sort of thought this might be a winter dish, but then after I looked at the wonderful photos, I decided that I would eat it any time. You could plop me in the Nevada desert with this thing and I’d be a happy camper. (@ Crepes of Wrath)

Rhubarb and Strawberry Crisps - These look great, but mostly the photos are beautiful.  I’ve been trying to piece apart Helen’s book Plate to Pixel because I feel like I’ve hit kind of a plateau with my photos.  The photos in this post are out of reach for me right now.  Working on it though!

Strawberry Balsamic Tart - More strawberries.  Can’t get enough of them.  Love them in this really pretty tart. Would be cool to bring this to a brunch or something. (@ Sugar Laws)

Rainbow Cookies - It’s possible that these would be best for Easter which has just passed us by, but I had to link to them anyway. The colors on these cookies are outstanding!  They would be great for a kid’s birthday also. (@ Erin Cooks)
