Jim Hughes Funky Lobster Claw

Hi Joey,

   An interesting event happened last night at our neighbors Lobster party. They went to a market here in Naples and asked for 9-1 1/2 pound lobsters. They were given 2 bags full of Lobsters and brought them home.  As they were cooking, this claw was noticed. Apparently, something under the sea also has a craving for this fine meat. All they got of this one was a bite, and the bite had grown over with a dark hard shell. I’m sure that you have seen this a lot, but it was a first for us. It made a great conversation piece.

Sista Felicia Kicks Some Panini Ass

She tells me that ever since she got this panini press that she uses it at least once a day and is thinking of having a panini cooking demo/party.  I’ll let y’all know when we iron out the details.  Hers is a Delonghi and looked to be constructed pretty solidly.
