Today, we’re featuring Felesha from Say Grace Blog again. Be sure to stop and take a minute and give her a shout-out for sharing another delicious recipe with us.
Hey there, Gather for Bread Pals!!! I’m baaaaack! Today, I’m sharing these succulent Gluten Free Spicy Lobster Bites! Oh yeah! Hubby and I just celebrated 5 wonderful years of marriage along the coast of Maine. Bar Harbor, ME to be exact. What a beautiful sight to see!
We enjoyed rock climbing, kayaking, a lobster boat tour and dined on the freshest lobster known to man! If you haven’t been, be sure to put it on the bucket list. This was hubby’s first experience with a WHOLE lobster! He’s always enjoyed lobster tails (which is really the abdomen by the way) but he’d never tried the deliciousness of the gorgeous lobster claw. It was love at first bite he tells me!!
On our trip, we enjoyed lobster for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Once we returned home, we were still in a lobster kinda mood and he wanted me to make my Overboard
Seafood Linguine Alfredo and these lobster bites that we always enjoy when we visit Ruth’s Chris restaurant. If you haven’t tried these at the restaurant, I can tell you that these Gluten Free Spicy Lobster Bites come pretty close to their original. They’re so good that Momma enjoyed them with us and she doesn’t even eat lobster! I wanted to even recreate the pickled onions and cucumbers that Ruth’s Chris serves this yummy appetizer with and they were a really nice complement to the dish.
It was so nice to just unplug and get some good ole R&R with hubby! We needed it badly as we get so caught up in what life brings and it was great reestablishing that much-needed connection as husband and wife. I love the scripture in Song of Solomon that states, My lover said to me,“Rise up, my darling! Come away with me, my fair one! Look, the winter is past, and the rains are over and gone. The flowers are springing up, the season of singing birds has come, and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air. The fig trees are forming young fruit, and the fragrant grapevines are blossoming. Rise up, my darling! Come away with me, my fair one!” – Song of Solomon 2:10-13 (NLT). Nurturing marriage was a big priority back then and it still holds true to this day.
Say Grace and enjoy Pals!!
