We understand why the folks at online lobster site LiveLob.com would be a little down this time of year, what with everyone thinking, “Turkey, Turkey, Turkey!” But we doubt their effort to convince anyone to serve lobster instead of the traditional bird is gonna fly. Still, we offer them kudos for trying: “Lobster is a versatile food that works in many holiday dishes or recipes. It takes much less time and effort to prepare than a roasted turkey, and lobster can simply be boiled for a few minutes and served!” they claim. But their site’s worth a visit for the pumpkin cheesecake dessert, and their famous pumpkin pecan pie. But lobster as a main course? Reminds us of the year Mom made a ham instead of turkey. (Yes, really.) We never let her forget it. You don’t make that mistake twice.
