A Secret about Lobster

I love secrets when they are happy secrets - like surprise engagements or babies.  I don't love secrets when they will eventually hurt someone.  I would rather not be involved if it has to be a bad secret.  I have a secret to share with you today.  It's really more of a confession, but I feel weird telling anyone.  I'm not sure why because it's perfectly normal.

I did one of the things on my 30 before 30 list and didn't love it.  I thought everything on that list would bring me so much joy and happiness - even the things I was a little afraid of.  Not this one.  

On our recent road trip up north, I ate Lobster in a nice restaurant right on a little harbor in Camden, Maine.  I've had Lobster rolls before and bites of Justin's fresh Lobster in Boston (but I was a little tipsy and didn't remember if I liked it.)  Turns out, I didn't love the texture, I didn't love the butter, I definitely didn't love or even really like the tail.  The claws were good, but I didn't love them.

What a silly thing to keep a secret, right?  I feel like I'm doing a disservice to the northeast by not being Lobster's biggest fan.  

Now that that is off my chest, I will share with you my favorite meal of the entire trip.  I tried a Fried Clam Sandwich thanks to the recommendation of the old man sitting next to me in a bar in Portland.  Justin ordered a Lobster Roll (that was amazing by the way.)  It was from a little food stand in Kennebunkport.  We will be back there.  It was the best food we had all week.

Also, my apologies if you were looking for something a little juicier today.  I don't really have too many secrets :)  But you can go see what other people linked up for "share a secret" day.

  1. I'm not a fan of lobster either (and I work for a lobster company) however I did enjoy lobster eggs benedict last weekend...I was so surprised!

  2. Growing up in Maine, I <3 lobster. But, I'm a fan of the claws more than the tail. And fried clams but not as much as steamed clams, which most people think are gross :)

  3. I would choose crab legs over lobster any day.

  4. Not a lobster fan, either. I think, like you, it's because of the texture and that most people usually soak it in butter...bleck! I've heard lobster rolls are awesome, though, so I guess at some point I'll have to try them just to say I have...hopefully while traveling the East Coast like you (so jealous)!

  5. I'm not a huge lobster fan, there are many other types of seafood I would order before lobster!


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
