Steamed New England Lobster

Yum.  We’ve been here 3 nights and I have had 2 lobster meals.  Lobster Bisque and Seafood Kristopher (lobster, scallops, and haddock in a creamy Alfredo sauce over fettucini).  I have eaten fresh seafood, clams, cod, scallops, lobster, or oysters for every meal.  Every bite has been yummy.

Just a few minutes ago I had steamed New England lobster in the shower.  In what has to be the most unusual and weirdest complaint in the history of hotel suites, we ran out of cold water.  Yes, you read that correctly.  I bathed my body and washed my hair standing beside the main stream of the shower and splashing hot water on myself because it was just too hot to stand under — even coming out of the cold nozzle.

What’s up with that?  We don’t know, but we survived it and are the cleanest we have ever been — even if we did have to take ourselves out of the shower using lobster forks. I wonder if it is a side effect of this weird storm?

Oh, speaking of the storm, our flight has been grounded.  We have to stay in New England in this luxury suite with the giant feather bed for one more night.  (We are so abused.)  Amoeba’s niece works here and, since it is the off season, we were given one of the best rooms in the house (sitting room, bathroom, bedroom) for the rice of a regular double. The room included a giant jacuzzi bathtub and an electric fireplace.  We also have free wifi, a candy dish full of tiny sweets, 2 giant TVS and free bottled water. All that and unlimited hot water.  What more can one ask for?

In case you are wondering, we also passed by the Mayflower II, visited Plymouth rock, and the Daniel Webster estate.  Yes, I have photos.  I will share when I am less busy.  Much time has also been taken up visiting family, which is as it should be.


  1. I’m certainly not sorry for you this morning! My mouth is watering over the meals you have been enjoying. I had lobster 29 years ago in Massachusetts and I’ve never forgotten how incredible delicious it was.

    I worried all night about losing power while the wind (gusts over 50mph) kept me awake until 4am. So far, so good –we still have power — but now I have to go out and drive in this madness.

    1. Karen — Amoeba asked me yesterday if I was tired of seafood yet. My response was, “Am I still breathing?” I had a Cape Cod Reuben the other day. Fresh cod, Swiss Cheese and cole slaw grilled to crispy brown perfection. Delicious.

    1. Barbara — I wondered that myself! I feared if I wanted the soap out of my hair I’d have to use the bottled water, but I acclimated to the temp, it was hotter then I like, but not lethal.

    1. Bill — this is my first visit to the Atlantic, but it likely won’t be my last! i love the food and this ocean is so different than my beloved Pacific, but no less beautiful.

  2. A regret of mine, held since maybe 1992, is that I didn’t try the McLobster sandwich Boston McDonalds were selling when I visited the city.

    1. SN — not just a hot shower, a HOT shower. The toilet tank filled with hot water, too! When we told the desk clerk, she didn’t half believe us.

    1. Nessa — those aren’t our nrmal shower habits, trust me. As a rule, I usually prefer my water temp at least a bit below boiling.

    1. Sounds like you been eating like royalty. I love lobster. 🙂 I’ve never been back to New England except for one quick trip to Boston for one day. That was the extent of my visit. It was for work. I’d love to see all those places you have visited. I can’t wait to see the photos 🙂

  3. Seafood IS what it’s all about! It all sounds scandelously yummy! Nothin’ can fatten up seafood like a great alfredo sauce! I am going to head NORTH one of these days – just so I can eat steamed lobster with drawn butter! As MUCH of it as I can possibly ingest! Yes, I will pray upfront for forgiveness of my anticipated gluttony!

    I’ve never showered with Lobster … but I’m not OPPOSED to the idea! 🙂

  4. So, I guess you are enjoying the snow?? Sounds like a fantastic suite! I have not had lobster since hubby and I went to Maine over 16 years ago. We want to go back one day with our girls. The new england states are beautiful. Come to think of it, America is beautiful!
