National Lobster Day !!
(Which is today by the way.)
Today is National Lobster Day! Did you know that lobster was once considered peasant food? In the 1800s, lobsters were incredibly plentiful and New Englanders could simply walk down the beach and capture them during low tide. Many servants lived off of lobster during this time period. In fact, one Massachusetts community had to pass a law that limited how often you could serve lobster to your servants. It was a modest three times a week!
Today, lobster is considered a luxurious delicacy all over the world. In the state of Maine alone, lobster fishing is a $1 billion industry. There are many ways to enjoy lobster, but the most popular cooking methods are boiling, baking, steaming, and grilling.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t eat anything with a face still on it… just… no.
Also, today is National Smile Power Day and Nature Photography Day and National Flip Flop Day.
So I’m gonna put on my flip flops, smile, go take some nature photos and think about dancing lobsters (because why not)
How you celebrate is up to you. 🙂
