NYE: Last Minute Lobster

20131228-223312.jpg

We all understand how horrid it felt, the instant we realized New Years Eve 2014 fell on a Tuesday this year! For some reason noise makers and beads sound A LOT less exciting, after your boss had a moody day, since the Dow fell 0.02% following a steady two week climb. So @TheYLife thought why not just stay in and have a simple, quiet meal for two… open a bottle of bubbly with a midnight kiss and call it a day!

This is when I decided to share with you…

L’s NYE Lobster Rolls:

First off, pick-up two or three frozen Lobster Tails at your grocery today

Tuesday, leave the Lobster’s to thaw in the fridge, when you leave for work

Once Thawed, De-Vein the Lobsters and remove from shell

Steam Lobsters: 15-20 Minutes (Double- Steaming Pot)

Set Lobsters aside @ Room Temperature to cool
