Lobster Rolls

To me, the perfect lobster rolls have a great sauce, a bit of green crunchy leaves, and soft sweet lobster. We still have some crayfish in the freezer so I made these for St. Valentine’s Day.

We have two flights of stairs in our home. The one is steep, but straight and leads from the garage to the cottage. From there we have a walkway into our study. This is the one used by Dave and the dogs, and by me when we go out at night. The other set is a spiral staircase leading from the pub to the walkway at our bedroom. I use this one mostly as I find it more convenient. Molly, our Jack Russell, thinks so too, so she uses it during the day. The other night after Dave had locked up, I noticed a candle was burning. For the first time ever I did not turn the light on to go down the stairs.

I am not sure why I did not do so, because even though I can do the straight stairs in the dark, I know I cannot do the same with the spiral ones. My foot slid on the last of the turning steps and I missed it completely. This saw me tumbling down the remaining three steps. I had to hang on to make sure I did not land on the tiled steps below me. And as Dave had created a chair barrier for Holly, I had to ensure I did not slam into that either. I have serious bruising where my body connected with the treads. And I was really sore for a week after my fall. Needless to say, I won’t be doing that in the dark again!

  1. Wait. You have a cottage and a pub?????!! I might have to move in with you! I finally had a lobster roll in New York City just a few years back, and wow. It was fabulous. Thanks for a recipe!

  2. I had never had a lobster roll until two years ago with my daughter in Montauk NY. During the pandemic of all times! I thought I had died and gone to heaven. So sad I had missed out on that experience all those years. Love your recipe. I must try it at home now. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This looks delicious! I just had my first lobster roll on our January Florida vacation. I have some crab in the freezer so I’ll have to try yours. Glad you are okay (if bruised). My sister has a pub shed they built outside
