Fiorella’s for dinner tonight!
For just over $8, Sebastian’s offers a juicy hot half rotisserie chicken on a bed of roasted vegetables. There’s red and green peppers, mushrooms, carrots, water chestnuts, potatoes, and corn. Just add some salt, pepper, and ketchup and go at it! Not bad at all. Very filling and just what I needed today.
In case you haven’t noticed, lobster is dirt cheap these days. Normally, paying $5.99 per pound for lobster is a great deal and you’d splurge by buying 2 per person. These days I’m getting lobster for under $4 per pound!
There are many ways to prepare lobster: stir fried, deep fried, in a sandwich, boiled, steamed, etc…
My preferred approach is steaming. Lobster comes out very tasty this way. The key to getting all of the meat out is of course to use a lobster cracker thingy (what do you call those?). The first thing to do is break the lobster in half – between the head and shell (sorta the middle length wise). To get the tail piece out, you’d bend and snap the tail fans back/upwards…then you push the meat out of the big end. The claws are straight forward. Don’t forget the best part…the icky green brains (at least thats what I call it) under the head!
