I can still remember the first time I indulged, the clumsiness, feeling and finding my way, not knowing quite what to do with it, but trying as hard as I could, the sweetness of finding the meaty core and sinking my teeth into a lobster for the first time. I kind of like lobster. I seldom order it, it can be rather expensive. We had a quick lunch at the Newport Lobster Shack, actually my first "food truck" experience, the food is cooked in a mobile kitchen. It was very good.
Out on the lobster docks we passed many barrels of "bait." Salted fish and the fermenting whole fish. Be glad the smell-a-blogger on that first barrel. You can take my word for it, or go smell for yourself.
Have you ever cooked a live lobster?
When I was a teenager, my grandmother and I picked up live lobsters to take home to cook. I was getting all strange about it and she just chucked them and said to "act my age."
