June is National Seafood Month and as part of that celebration, today is National Lobster Day!! Have you enjoyed your lobster yet?
No matter how you enjoy your crustacean fixed, you're sure to find something to your liking at, what I believe to be, the world's largest lobster buffet - Custy's Seafood Buffet in Stonington, CT (just down the road from the casinos). Dinner there was the highlight of our vacation in my husband's mind. If you love your seafood, check it out!
Today is also historic in food history as, in 1789, General George Washington was served a new dessert treat by Mrs. Alexander Hamilton - ice cream!!!! There's no word as to who actually invented the treat but I wonder if George whispered to his neighbor something along the lines of "This just might catch on!"
Also notable is the death of Jimmy Dean last year, founder of the Jimmy Dean Meat Co., known for his country sausage. (Oh yeah, he sang a little too.)
OK, I'm off to find a lobster roll for lunch.
Happy Thanksgiving, Serious Eaters! - With the Thanksgiving preparation madness winding down, and the cooking madness about to begin, I have to take a moment to reflect on the many, many things...
