Live Lobsters to Celebrate 5 Years!
Here's the box the little crustaceans arrived in:
And here are the beauties themselves. The one on the right was definitely the fiestier of the two. It gave James a bit of a fight. Thank goodness for those rubber bands! (And yes, that is a lemon and a plastic bag of butter packets nestled into the box with the lobsters.)
I made James put them in the pot of boiling water. (And no, they did not scream.) (And yes, I did feel a little bit bad about the whole thing. But someone else killed the cow that gave us our filet mignon. It shouldn't make a difference who does the killing, but it does have a psychological effect.)
But of course I got past my guilt and enjoyed the scrumptious feast...
...and some good company:
Here's to another five years and beyond!
