My husband’s nephew, well not really, his 2nd cousin once removed, but he’s slightly older than our eldest son and it’s just easier to say Uncle and Aunt for his four year old.

Okay are you still with me? My nephew and his four year old have been coming over most Sunday afternoons for dinner and fun. Wayne is a stupendous cook in his own right and we have a blast hanging in the kitchen and coming up with fun stuff to eat! His four year old will absolutely eat ANYTHING you put in front of him, I love it!

So the boys had it in their heads that they wanted Lobster Alfredo a few weeks ago. But REAL Alfredo as my nephew says, “F&%@ that Cashew milk!” …. in other words, heavy cream! So, feeling a bit sorry myself since I couldn’t eat it, I said OK but I need a cup or so for my own dish.

This was totally better than lobster alfredo! (Well, perhaps not, but I’ll never know!)

After a trip to the local fish monger we were armed with our culls, which are not prefect (usually missing a claw) so they are only $6.99 a pound. Which is cheap for our area.

Have you heard that lobster has a lot of fat and is unhealthy? Nothing could be farther from the truth. That is, if you skip the butter!!! At less than 100 calories per serving, lobster has less calories, saturated fat and cholesterol than beef, chicken or pork!! Surprised? Check out this article!!

    Spinach and cheese – this one will never get old! Do you think I can substitute salmon for lobster? Or any fish? Shrimp would probably come closest, right?
