Loster Tail!

The other day I was flipping through the grocery store ad and they had lobster tail in there.  For some reason that just jumped out at me.  Hadn’t had lobster for awhile and it sounded so good.  Did some quick thinking and determined some good food to match with it and had a delicious basic dinner of lobster tail, asparagus and home fries.

Just picked up some red and sweet potatoes and tossed them with rosemary, S&P and garlic powder.  Baked them at 425 for about 40 minutes.

For the asparagus, decided to just blanch it.  So put it in boiling water for 2-3 minutes then rinsed with cold water (you can be really good and dunk it in ice water, but this can be just as effective for a quick method).  For the lobster tail, I boiled them for about 5 minutes and it was perfect.

Come the end, paired this with a nice French white wine — Sancerre.  Absolutely delicious dinner.  Might just have to make it again.

Cooking…4,5,6…Lobster Tail

After making biscotti last night I wanted to treat myself to a nice dinner.  A grocery store had lobster tails on sale so I couldn’t resist that!  Decided to just steam one, saute some spinach with garlic, get some tomatoes and a nice baguette to dip in olive oil & balsamic with Artisan Salt and pepper.  Served all that with a very nice Pinot Blanc from Chateau St. Jean.  Perfect dinner for a Friday night.
