Best of CEiMB - July 9, 2009

Lobster Roll:
This guilt free creamy lobster or shrimp roll is a great way to healthily indulge in shellfish on those lazy day summertime picnic's. The Greek yogurt and mayo sauce is a great canvas to adapt for your own tastes.


This week Tessa from Handle the Heat took top billing:

And runner up goes to Liz of The Not So Skinny Kitchen:

There were quite a few really great pictures this week. It was hard to choose only two. Keep it up everyone!!!


Best post goes to our lovely hostess this week, MacDuff of Lonely Sidecar. If you read Duff's blog on a regular basis then you know that she always has some interesting and hysterical commentary on whatever is going on in her life at the time. And she has a wonderful way of always tying it into food.

Duff explains in her post the reason she picked this recipe was because she had plans to spend a long weekend up in Maine at The Lawyer from Southie's (TLFS) family beach house. However, just getting there was a bit of a scary ordeal.

The Lawyer from Southie took me up for a weekend at his family's home on the coast of Maine. In order to get there, we had to drive, then take a ferry, then drive again. I mentioned the rain, right? The rain was torrential. We snaked up the coast of Maine going about 30mph in the dark, with a rainstorm that was sure to wash the outlets at Freeport away. TLFS started referring to our camera as "The Black Box," only because if we were found dead, the video of us driving in the thunder and lightning, rocking out to Def Leppard and dodging huge bolts of THE LORD'S WRATH would be the only thing to let our family know that we loved them.

I think I speak for everyone when I say I am happy to know that they made it there and back alive. Check out the rest of her post to be regaled about tales of croquet and couples in coordinated argyle sweaters (and I am not hating on the argyle sweater, I love a nice argyle).

Great job to all this week. Can't wait for next week's noodles - I already made them and they are super delicious.
