Delicious - Lobster Roll #Recipe

I have had this many times - it is truly one of my favorite sandwiches. A New England, Cape Cod must try for sure, if you have been there you know what I mean.  A lobster roll is some thing that is decadent and should be enjoyed from time to time... They are very easy to make at home with just a few ingredients. Yes lobster is a little pricey but OH So Worth IT!! recipe down below. Now get that big pot out and fill it with water.

The Lobster Roll

6 each
2 oz.
2 each

New England style top cut hotdog rolls
softened butter
celery stalks

  • Wash and dry celery stalks. Using a vegetable peeler, peel celery stalks lengthwise to create long ribbons.  Place Ribbons in ice water and set aside.
  • Trim the crust off four sides of the roll to “square off” the roll. Lightly spread softened butter on the three longer sides including the bottom. 
  • On a griddle on medium heat, toast all buttered sides until golden brown.
  • Fill each roll with lobster salad and place a twisted celery ribbon on top of each stuffed roll. Serve with chips or pretzels.

Lobster Salad
Ingredients for Lobster:
2 each
4 oz.
1 gallon
whole 1 lb. live Maine lobsters
Kosher salt (for cooking water)

Ingredients for Dressing:

1 Cup
1 each
1 tsp.
1 tsp.
1/2 tsp.
1/4 tsp.
1/8 tsp.
juice of 1/2 a lemon
small garlic clove - minced
parsley - chopped
chives - chopped
tarragon - chopped
freshly ground black pepper

Cooking those Lobsters!!

In a medium stock pot bring Kosher salt and water to a heavy boil.
Make an ice bath by filling a large bowl with ice water and set aside. Completely submerge Lobster in boiling water for 10-12 minutes.  Carefully remove from boiling water and place in ice bath until thoroughly chilled. (approx. 10-12 minutes).
Once completely cooled remove meat from the shell and discard shell. Cut lobster meat into small pieces. Set aside.

In a medium bowl mix remaining ingredients well to make the salad dressing.

Use a rubber spatula to gently mix desired amount of dressing into the cut lobster meat being careful to not break up the lobster meat.  Place in refrigerator in sealed container until ready for use.

 thanks and enjoy!!

New Cast Pics w/ their alter egos!! "Intro to Shere Khan" Video - Disney's #Jungle Book

THE JUNGLE BOOK opens in theatres everywhere in 3D, RealD 3D, and IMAX 3D on April 15th! #JungleBook

check out the cool new pics and bios

Scarlett Johansson / Kaa
Kaa is a massive python who uses her voice and hypnotic gaze to entrance Mowgli. The man-cub can't resist her captivating embrace. "Kaa seduces and entraps Mowgli with her storytelling," says Scarlett Johansson. "She's the mirror into Mowgli's past. The way she moves is very alluring, almost coquettish."

Idris Elba / Shere Khan
Voiced by Idris Elba, Shere Khan bears the scars of man, which fuel his hatred of humans. Convinced that Mowgli poses a threat, the bengal tiger is determined to rid the jungle of the man-cub. "Shere Khan reigns with fear," says Elba. "He terrorizes everyone he encounters because he comes from a place of fear."

 Sir Ben Kingsley / Bagheera
Bagheera is a sleek panther who feels it's his duty to help the man-cub depart with dignity when it's time for him to leave his jungle home. "Bagheera is Mowgli’s adoptive parent," says Ben Kingsley, who lends his voice to Bagheera. "His role in Mowgli’s life is to educate, to protect and to guide. My Bagheera was military–he’s probably a colonel. He is instantly recognizable by the way he talks, how he acts and what his ethical code is.”

Lupita Nyong'o / Raksha
Lupita Nyong'o voices Raksha, a mother wolf who cares deeply for all of her pups–including man-cub Mowgli, whom she adopts as one of her own when he's abandoned in the jungle as an infant. "She is the protector, the  eternal mother," says Nyong'o. "The word Raksha actually means protection in Hindi. I felt really connected to that, wanting to protect a son that isn’t originally hers but one she’s taken for her own."

Christopher Walken / King Louie
King Louie is a formidable ape who desperately wants the secret of Man's deadly "red flower”–fire. He's convinced Mowgli has the information he seeks. "King Louie is huge–12 feet tall," says Christopher Walken, who voices the character. "But he's as charming as he is intimidating when he wants to be.”

Giancarlo Esposito / Akela
Akela is the strong and hardened alpha-male wolf who shoulders the responsibility of his pack. He welcomes Mowgli to the family, but worries he may one day compromise their safety. "Akela is a fierce patriarch of the wolf pack," says Giancarlo Esposito, who voices the character. "He believes the strength of the pack lies in what each and every wolf offers. He's a great leader, a wise teacher."

See ya later movie fans!! :-)

#Orlando LONGEST COASTER - Lots of Pics and Video of Final Piece Of Mako's Giant track

Big Moves are finally complete at SeaWorld Orl. They have finally installed the final piece of Mako’s nearly mile-long steel track. This completes the footprint of what will be Orlando’s Longest, Fastest and Tallest Coaster... This will be one major stop on everyone's thrill list.. It won't be long before the other theme parks here in Central Florida try to out do this incredible coaster called mako.

Mako Fact! The 12,500-pound, final piece of track was topped with a waving American flag as it was lifted high in the air by a giant crane, and then bolted into place by workers.  The moment finished off a track that is 4,760 feet of pure thrill.

When Mako – a true hypercoaster – opens this summer, it will top 200 feet high and reach speeds of 73 mph. Riders will feel weightless as they reach the top of each hill.
