Broccoli... beans with maple syrup and sausages... buritos (spg?)... I don't care.

Lobster and beer. Hands down... well, waving. George Carlin never had lobster and beer, apparently.

I would challenge Spaw on this one.

Yes, it is a pathetic and childish thread. I am bored. Go post somewhere else.

Any seafood -- but lobster is especially good -- with stout. Curmudgeon and I discovered this while eating, I think, a birthday lobster without champagne. Guinness is good, but any decent stout works its magic. The flavors complement and enhance each other.

I've been hungry for lobster (well, I'm usually hungry for lobster!) lately, but our repast for our "other anniversary" (double anniversary of when Tom and I met at a Fishtraks Christmas party and night a year later when, while celebrating having known each other for a year, we decided to get married and started planning our wedding for the following June) tonight doesn't include any...yet.

I don't dislike lobster, I just like pretty much every other source of protein cheaper than lobster better. Cheese, fin fish, tofu, beans, red meat, white meat, gray meat (pork), mollusks, crab, shrimp.

Are those of you who do like lobsters are aware that they are bottom feeding scavengers? I have seen them in a fathom or two of water feeding on decaying fish. Have you?

Funny though, I like crab OK and they do the same think. But I have not seen them do it.

""Are those of you who do like lobsters are aware that they are bottom feeding scavengers""?

So are politicians, lawyers, salesmen and many other bottom living fish, like crab, cod, haddock, halibut. Something, or something, has to do it.

Marine mollusks like scallops, clams, mussles, oysters just filter out the smaller pieces of crap that you dont see (even sewage, if it's present) out of the water. Is it really that much different?

Lobster, while cheaper this year, is indeed expensive, especially if they are shipped far, and have a few handlers who get their share of your money offering. And, consider you only get roughly 25 percent meat out of your live purchase. At least with scallops, all you buy is edible protien.

Indeed, the rise of the price of lobster is astonishing. A bottom feeder that was once drag netted from near shore by waders to be dumped on farm fields to grow spuds and corn and whatever.

But, I love the taste.

As for farmed salmon, it's better than no salmon. And the lumber industry has made short work of the wild salmon here.

""And the lumber industry has made short work of the wild salmon here.""

What is happening in or near rivers and coastal areas contributes.But, what leading scientists say is the main problem with Atlantic salmon is poor survival during their sea phase. Meaning, enough salmon are leaving the many rivers to repopulate the species. But, not enough return to rivers to spawn as adults.

This is not to say that some land or coastal practices, such as chemicals used to control sea lice, or agricultural or forest spraying has not limited their ability to survive log-term or to produce fit offsprings. There is surely enough and a range of chemicals used to make some difference.

Reminds me of the old curmudgeon who went to a restaurant and didn't know what he wanted, so the waitress made a number of suggestions which he found fault with; Finally she said, "we have tongue on special" she said, "Hell no, I won't eat anything that came out of an animals mouth"!

Did somebody say Black Velvet? I am so there, having had my first less than a week ago! And I love lobster but rarely spend the money for it. However, once a year a nearby Unitarian church sells lobster rolls as its annual fundraiser. It's a roll, a little butter, and a lot of lobster. No mayo, celery, or anything else. I buy one for lunch and one for dinner. Once once a year Mystic Seaport has Lobster Days. I bring my own tools! I used to cook lobsters but have become lazy.

In case you were planning to use truffle oil in your lobster Mac, the inromation below may be useful:

The New York Times, May 16, 2007, "Hocus Pocus and a Beaker of Truffles," by Daniel Patterson went public with the information (which had been common knowledge in restaurant circles but was not well-known among consumers) that truffle oil is actually a chemical concoction made by mixing olive oil with various chemical compounds, such as 2,4-dithiapentane, that has been created in a laboratory which simulates the aroma and taste of white truffles.

""When purchasing truffle oil, carefully check the label and look for the words "infused with truffles" on the label. That way, you know you are getting real truffle oil, not chemically made crap"".

Now don't that turn your truffle pig blue?

Rant to follow:

What a let down when I learned that most truffle oil is "simulated", and not made from real "dig down and dirty" French-pig-located truffles (aka underground, rich mans shrooms).

It kind of reminds me of the old "Little Red Riding Hood" joke that most of you likely heard a few years back.

Wolf said to Little Red Riding Hood, "I am goiing to huff and puff and eat you".

""Eat me, doesn't any one F@%& anymore"", replied the wise young Red Hooded girl.

Is everything simulated in today's chemical world. There's even simulated Lobster meat crap, to join with the simulated crab crap:(

ChantyLass-

You nailed "See a mobster eat a lobster." Another Jon Campbell classic song.

Then there's the song Amos and I cobbled together called "The Tale of Lobster Barbie," inspired by a true newspaper story from Downeast Maine: click here for lyrics and MP3 Sample!

Sad to say, composing such ditties is how some of us squander our finite well of creativity.
