Food Trip: A lobster roll from The Lobster Roll

This is a place that we have been to many times before on the way to the wineries of the North Fork area along the backways.  (The Lobster Roll Northside on Old Sound Road).

I just thought it would make for a tempting piece to show you what I always get when we drive by for a quick  bite.

Their Lobster Roll is simply delicious and meaty lobster heaven!  Not too heavy on the mayonnaise, and just right with the seasonings.  (Some lobster rolls tend to be too heavy on the bay seasoning which is good in moderation, but overpowering when used generously on seafood.)

Take note that they are only open on weekends in the winter months, but they are definitely worth the drive.

Here’s someone being funny by the bar where we sat. (The place was packed and unfortunately, outdoor seating was closed due to the low temperatures.

Food trip: Thanksgiving at Seasons 52

We decided to go simple this Thanksgiving and we went out to have lunch in Long Island for a change. Alan picked Seasons 52. They had a series of flatbread appetizers and Alan picked the Spicy Chipotle Shrimp flatbread which was something new and memorable. The flat bread isn’t quite “nacho thick” but the flavors more than made up for the ultra think “wafer-like” crust.

We aren’t really that much into turkey so it wasn’t suprising that we all passed up on the Thanksgiving offerings. Instead, I zeroed in on the lamb chops which were flavorful without totally removing the gaminess of the meat. Thanksgiving 2013 at Seasons52 Dessert was another treat. I picked two of their mini-cups and I loved the dulce de leche and the pecan pie taster. Gloriously sinful! Thanksgiving 2013 at Seasons52

Picked up from the Facebook status of the ex-wife of a friend of my husband’s. Someone not on my friend list but who had been on my mind for another reason altogether the past couple of days.

The words moved me so much that I had to leave a note even if I hadn’t seen nor heard from her in years.  It was just one of those things where I had to say something a leave an echo somehow.
