September 25th National Lobster Day

September 25th National Lobster Day

Today is not a good day to be a lobster. (Is any day a good day to be a lobster?) There was a time when lobster in the northeast was actually pretty cheap to come by… then the world invented butter and the prices went up. It is quite a treat, in some cases a feast, and while I think most lobsters would rather be thought of as tasteless I don’t see that happening any time soon. It’s sort of funny to think that a creature that dwells on the bottom of the ocean is among those things on the top of the menu.

How to celebrate – Have a lobster today. Free a lobster today. Dress like a lobster today.

I can honestly say I never thought I would be celebrating National Crab Meat day… or any meat day as far as that goes. However, unless you are allergic to it, if you are going to celebrate a meat day crab meat is a pretty good one.

They make great treats, supplement other fish meals and go well with just about anything. Apparently, most American’s agree as we eat 1.5 million tons of crab meat a year.

How to celebrate – Boil or steam some crab today. Make up your own crab dish. Leave your crabbiness on the plate.
