1 lb lobsters were $4.99 a lb at the local lobster pound, but we just passed their sign and they are down to $3.99 for a lb!!! Holy Moly! We had decided to splurge for this labor day weekend and bought 2 filet mignon's to grill, but NOW we are gonna buy 2 1lb lobsters to make it a perfect surf and turf! The corn on the cob at the market was the size of Alaska, which it always is this time of the year, so we bought 10 for the week....before ya know it, the cobbed corn will be gone! just POOF, gone, none until next may or june up here! :(

we are heading down to the bay for a long walk on the beach...and rock hunting ....before the eating orgy to come, hoping to scave off a few pounds before adding them this weekend!

there is a fair in a town called blue hill, that we plan to hit, tomorrow, but maybe tonight too if the entertainment is good!!!

how about you guys....? what are your plans?

I live in a close knit Marine/Navy neighborhood. We always get together on holidays and do a pot luck thing. I'll do my shrimp and there's usually hamburgers, hot dogs, steak, etc..and there'll be alot of adult beverages to wash it down.:tongue:

Found some thick boneless rib-eyes for just over 4 bucks a pound. A little 'cowboy rub', a little marinade, makes Bobby Flay look over-complicated.

the wife and I just had 2 succulent porterhouse's, red potatoes fried up with onion garlic and ham bits and some carpaccio, it was one of the sweetest cuts I have ever had of Porterhouse, Allen Bros. is the best, hands down ....mine was 1 pound and a half, I wanted it finish it but didn't.... I cut off the tenderloin for tomorrow morning. ;)

I'll be crawling around on my one one good leg with a house full of screaming monsters (unless I can chase them down to the lake)....



So you can ALL miss my hairy ass
:razz:


Seriously, though, I have the smoker ready and a couple slabs of spare ribs that are marinating in the fridge.
They'll enjoy most of the day slow-smoking while the Missus makes up the tater salad, deviled eggs, etc.....
I'll be monitoring her from the patio

i'm still a novice....we are recent transplants....according to Mainers, we are ''from away''....been here a few years....still feels like vacation....:)

we just found this lobster pound and it is just a mile and a half from our house....

but YES, summer....or end of summer, seems to be the cheapest!
