Wordless Wednesday Tasting Lobster for the First Time #WW

When in Maine, James tried fried clam strips and fish and chips for the first time. I don’t care for seafood, so I never cook it. My Mother-in-Law Gerene loves seafood and loves to see the kids try new things. She surprised the boys after brunch with a couple of cooked lobsters and some raw oysters.


“Today, you will try lobster!”


and the face says it all!

lobster6James said, “If it was fried, I would try it again.” LOL That’s the American way! Batter it! Fry it! Love it! :)

    Okay, that is a very funny series of photos. I do like seafood, but had never had lobster until we went out to Red Lobster for our first anniversary. Not too bad, but not something I need to have.

    What a riot! My uncle owned a small seafood restaurant when I was little. Maybe that’s why I always loved seafood.

    Ooh, I love lobster. That’s funny, because other than shrimp, I hate seafood. Never tried it fried, but bet it would be scrumptious that way too :)

    Funny, I don’t like seafood, either, so I won’t cook it – but every now and then my 6 year old will order fish & chips while we are out. I don’t know where he learned to like it, but I’m glad he can get it at restaurants because I won’t make it for him at home LOL.

    I personally love lobster and most fish, clams only in chowder but not oysters on the half shell, yuck, smoked are good. Its fun that he got to try lobster.

  14. 14

    that’s okay James I agree with you,too much work to get it out of the shell an then dip it in butter,,fry it in butter first! then it would be great

    I love lobster and so does my son! While i have never prepared it at home (just couldn’t!!), we do order it at a restaurant on occasion. When we went to Maine, i think we had it everyday in some form – yumm lobster rolls!

    How adorable! I’m cracking up here! Fry anything! Guess they are too young to appreciate lobster! But how nice of a gesture! I love lobster, and I won’d try raw oysters!!!
