Spaghetti with Lobster

Spaghetti with Lobster 1

I’m always razzing Mr. Prevention about not eating fruit. If he eats a serving of fruit a WEEK, I’d be shocked. It’s not good! He’s a far better vegetable eater and it’s not that he doesn’t like fruit, but he “just doesn’t think of it”. Whatever the heck that means.

So this morning, he’s scrounging around the kitchen looking for…something. I ask what he’s looking for and he says, “Do we have any fruit in this house?” I respond with a dumbfounded look on my face and say, “Yes…apples, kiwi, bananas, grapefruit, cherries, blueberries…” And he says to me, “I guess I was looking for raspberries or strawberries…”

Aren’t some conversations simply exhuasting?

He’ll always tell me he feels bad for the employee working check-out in the lane we choose at the grocery store. “You have so many BAGS with random fruits and vegetables, Nicole. They don’t even know what it is you’re buying and have to look up the code and it takes forever.”

Oh. My. Heavens. I’m (not) sorry for eating fruits and vegetables, my love!

But sometimes, you just need a bowl of pasta and plenty of it. You need a comforting, decadent meal that you wouldn’t have just any given day. And you suddently find yourself incredibly grateful for the impulse purchase of lobster meat from CostCo a few weeks back. I love when my seafood comes without shells, bones, and eyeballs…and in bite size pieces, too? So worth the cost (if you can’t find lobster meat out of the shell/tail, however, just consult the link below to the original recipe).

Mr. P was hoping for a creamy, alfredo-like sauce with this dish, but I insisted that the lobster be the star of the dish…and that it was. Simple, classic, delicious! Serve with a glass of sauvignon blanc!

    Never tried lobster with spaghetti before but it looks tasty and healthy.

    As for fruit, you have to watch out for GMO. Always choose organic, if you are going to have it.

    Do you use reusable produce bags? That makes it even more time consuming because they aren’t see through, but it’s so worth it! Mr.P would be mortified by our check out line. We typically have 10-15 different types of produce and 5-7 different bulk bags. But we try to avoid the new checkers or checkers in training because it really is there nightmare.

      Hi Kel! Thanks for the suggestion…I definitely need to look into reusable produce bags! Love that idea!

    That looks so good. I love the idea of lobster outside of the restaurant. I always think of it as too decadent for me to have at home but, Costco? Never crossed my mind! Gotta check that out. Thanks!
