Hi there! I was at the market today and bought fresh and live lobsters at $6.99 a pound. A good size lobster is usually a pound and a half, so I bought some and cook them at home for dinner. There are different ways of cooking lobster but I usually cook mine by dunking it in a boiling water. One time I also tried cooking it using a steamer canister that is specifically just for lobster. Between these two methods, I prefer the boiling way because the lobster ends up juicier than when it is steamed. I eat my lobster with butter and garlic for dipping. I also like it with white rice and corn on the cob. How about you? Do you buy live lobsters? How much does a pound cost in your area? How do you cook it? Would love to hear from you.

To be honest, I've never had lobster so I couldn't tell you word one about it. But, I've heard it's really delicious so perhaps one of these lucky days I'll be able to try it out. Wait, I've got a pound of shrimp in my freezer, I'll console myself with them for now. *lol*

Hi. Hope you'll be able to try it someday. There might be restaurants near your area who offers this on the menu. Got to try it once at least and if you like seafood, I think you'll gonna like it. Shrimps ain't bad as alternative. I love it too! Enjoy!

I have never eaten lobster before. I am not a big fan of seafood unless it is breaded fried shrimp.

That's fine if you don't like seafood. Though it has been said that eating more seafood is one way to improve our diets and our health in general. Eating in moderation in all kind of food is also the other way to a healty you. Enjoy!
