Try It!

I believe in trying everything once.
I believe you should do things that scare you (a little).
You never know what you might like!

Yesterday, I had a fresh lobster at Chelsea Market!  I couldn’t take pictures while eating because hello, hot melted butter on my iPhone?  Terrible idea. 

I’ve never been a huge fan of lobster, but this one was delicious!  Mmm his yummy claws…makes me hungry just to look at this picture!

Ultimately, though, I can’t stomach eating lobster like this.  I’m a pescetarian, guys!  I firmly believe in only eating food that I could potentially catch and kill myself.  Look at that mug shot – take off those rubber bands and I would be the one in hot water!

That night I sent Eli out to get groceries – zucchini and beans to make more enchiladas for the week to come, and some soup because I feel a cold coming on.

Eels brought back not one – but TWO! – of the seaweed snacks I tried on April Fool’s Day and yes, LOVED!  They’re so addictive, I easily go through the whole package myself, which is okay because Eli tried one this time and he doesn’t like them.  Can you believe it?  His loss…

I can’t imagine going through life ruling out trying new things because of fear or intimidation of the unknown.  I am always excited to try new things provided they are not meat (ew!) or something I’m allergic to (eggs, fruit, fresh vegetables).  Just TRY things!

  1. You're allergic to fruit and fresh veggies?! You poor thing! I enjoy lobster but I prefer crab. Mmm crab cakes. And I'm hungry now.

  2. Did you forget Rhode Island lobsters? You liked it then, until the boys made puppets??
