Wow it’s been ages since I last posted on my blog. Well I’m back. I just came back from a summer vacation in Atlantic Canada, and I’m very happy to be home.

While I was out east I had the opportunity to try lobster for the first time ever!! I was pretty nervous about trying it because I usually either LOVE seafood or HATE it. Thankfully I ended up loving it. My uncle who is a fabulous chef made a lobster dinner feast for the whole family (all 15 of us). It was fabulous.

I was totally unaware about how to go about cracking the lobster open but my relatives gave me a few instructions, and some special tools, so that made things a bit easier, however it was still a struggle to open up certain parts of the lobster.

My uncle serve the lobster with garlic butter, green salad and mashed potatoes. It was a marvelous dinner enjoyed by all.

Here are a couple photos from my first lobster eating experience.

I also had a second opportunity to try lobster while I was on Prince Edward Island at a nice restaurant. I ordered stuffed lobster in sherry sauce with PEI potatoes and baby carrots and asparagus. It was absolutely amazing, ever better then my first lobster dinner.

Here is a of my stuffed lobster dinner.

My mom and I shared a PEI potato margarita which was to die for.

Have you had lobster before? What do you think of it? Have you cooked lobster before?
