Hubby's First Lobster!

Despite living in New England all his life, Hubby has never eaten a whole lobster. When I gave a gift of a lobster dinner to my Dad for Father's Day, I told him it had to include giving Hubby a lesson on how to eat one. My brother John volunteered to cook the lobsters at his house. In his usual French-cooking Frechette-family way, he went all out. We not only had lobsters, we had steak and lamb tips on the grill, potatoes and corn-on-the-cob. John did a great job preparing the little beauties: Hubby looks a bit apprehensive as he tries to determine the best way to grasp the situation:
"You're not serious about me eating THIS, are you?"
"MMMMM! It tastes good!"
My Dad and my brother John enjoyed the meal:
And so did John's wife Ruth, even though she didn't have any of the lobster!
Laura liked the lamb tips but skipped the lobster as well:
Dad got to take the "extra" lobster home.

I've never tried lobster. Although, at this point in my's no longer an option (I acquired a shell-fish allergy later in life).

When I was in New England on a business trip - I went in by myself and ordered a lobster..and was quite surprised when they brought out the whole thing and plopped it down..I had no idea how to eat it! I was used to lobster tails with drawn butter..that was quite an adventure! So I can totally relate to your Hubby! Looks like everyone (except the lobster) had a great time ;-D
