With the alarm set for 4:30 a.m. yesterday Finn had his bag packed for a day on the lobster boat. He was grumpy for about a minute upon waking up but then rallied in typical Finn fashion for a day of work.
After some Fortnight and a quick nap on the steam out, it was time to haul.
Nice work, Finn. Growing up salty.
Kate’s been away living the dream in Punta Cana at Hard Rock.
I didn’t have a plan for dinner and just needed to get to bed asap after work so bringing lobsters home was the plan.
So just having a couple small lobsters I took a casserole dish with glass top, poured a little water in the bottom and placed the glass top on and let it rip in the microwave for one minute to warm up the water before placing the lobsters in.
8 minutes covered in the microwave and they came out perfectly.
Then I took the dish out, drained the hot water out and filled it up with an ice bath.
Ten minutes later, perfectly ready to shuck .
Best part was how easy the clean up was. A couple of swipes with soap on the sponge and it was so fresh and so clean clean.
Goddamn they were delicious.
“Building on the success of its Gloucester Fresh seafood branding campaign, the city of Gloucester plans to apply the same formula to help brand and market Massachusetts lobster to lobster lovers the world over. Couldn’t happen in a better place.”- Sean Horgan
Link to article in today’s Gloucester Daily Times by Sean Horgan with photos by Mike Springerand lots of lobster numbers “Gloucester hopes catch can claw its way to top: Push on to brand, market Massachusetts Lobster”
Horgan wrote about the Seaport Economic Council award announcements August 15th, City Wins $110,000 promote its fish, lobster “We’re really excited about the attention the program is getting,” said Sal Di Stefano, the city’s economic development director and its point man on the Gloucester Fresh campaign. “This was just a concept a few years ago and now it’s an internationally recognized brand. We’re really proud of that.”
MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT FROM MAYOR SEFATIA!
Photographing shorebirds early today and this Homie arrives on the scene, loudly announcing his catch. Before I could turn on my movie camera, he swallowed the whole lobster, in one big gulp! You could see the sharp edges of the lobster as it went down his gullet. I predict a Homie with a tummy ache.
The tremendous variety of seaweed currently covering Pebble Beach captures a wealth of sustenance for migrating shorebirds (and Homies).
Sanderlings, Sandpipers, Semiplamated Plovers, and one Snowy Egret at Pebble Beach today, September 12, 2017.

CBS Local-Feb 11, 2015
BOSTON (CBS) – For years doctors have been advising Americans to avoid eating certain foods high in cholesterol like eggs, lobster and shrimp, but new research suggests that this is not sage advice.
It turns out your blood cholesterol is dictated much more by genetics than by how much cholesterol you eat in your diet.
That said, saturated fats, like butter, cream, cheese, and animal fats play a larger role in the level of bad cholesterol in your system and those foods should still be limited to maintain ideal cholesterol levels.
Dr. Mallika Marshall says people with diabetes and certain other medical conditions should limit cholesterol-rich foods, but for everyone else, eating eggs and shellfish is probably fine.
Absolutely the greatest headline I’ve ever read. Great work CBS Boston

Over Labor Day weekend we went with our daughter’s boyfriend, Matt, to Passports for a beautiful lunch. We were greeted by wonderfully friendly, helpful, and super professional India, Lyla, and Shawna.
As all who have eaten at Passports know, within a few moments after being seated, guests are immediately served fresh from the oven, piping hot popovers. This is always a welcome treat, and was especially so for Liv and Matt that afternoon as they had been hiking all around Coolidge Reservation earlier in the day.
Next we shared a plate of Eric’s fried oysters and without a doubt, I think they are THE BEST FRIED OYSTERS in town! What makes Passport’s oysters so special you may be wondering? Because every single time we go, their fried oysters are fantastically crisp on the outside and sweet-salty fresh oyster perfection on the inside; Passports oysters are never, ever soggy or greasy.
We ALL ordered Eric’s fabulous Lobster Salad Roll and it was divine–big chunks of fresh sweet Captain Joe and Sons succulent lobster meat, surrounded by a lovely array of fresh seasonal veggies (mine is pictured, requested without roll).
Thanks Eric, Lyla, India, and Shawna for welcoming Matt and showing him one of the reasons why we love Gloucester!
