Saturday Night Specials


We love to travel and our favorite trips are cruising. Last year we introduced all of our children, (adults) on the way to the airport. Here we had seven people who knew a lot about each other through email, pictures, and web cams but had never been introduced. What a fun trip that was. Reasons being the Iraq war. Our son is their for the second time and our son-in law is on his third tour. " Our little grandson's can't wait to see daddy." One of the meals we all enjoyed was the Steak and Lobster Tail. This is so quick and easy. We found the Lobster Tail at Albertsons for 5.50 this last week, not much to spend for a great Valentines Meal.

Broiled Lobster Tails

Preheat the broiler.

Place lobster tail on a medium Baking Sheet. With a sharp knife or kitchen shears, carefully cut top side of lobster shells lengthwise. Pull apart shells slightly, and season meat with equal amounts butter, paprika, salt and white pepper.
Broil lobster tails 5 to 10 minutes, or until butter is melted and lightly browned, and lobster meat is opaque. Carefully remove from shell. Dipping sauce 3 tablespoons butter with a little garlic and parsley flakes. You could also use cocktail sauce.

That Lobster looks divine. I really wish my husband could take me to a nice lobster dinner tonight, but he's out of town until Sunday. Bummer :(

Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Thanks for visiting my blog! These look easy! I'm sure my boys would love them. They are developing a love of expensive seafood. I was listening to the Barber of Seville on my computer while reading your blog and all of a sudden Josh Groban "Where you are" started playing (with Barber of Seville still in the background. "Hmm," I thought to myself, "I don't remember Josh Groban singing in the Barber of Seville." It took me a good few moments to realize it was your blog playing the music! BTW: Josh Groban should think about doing the Barber of Seville.
