Lobster Dinner

Posted by Picasa
Last week Nina brought is some of the biggest lobster tails I have ever seen. About a month ago, we helped her take care of a terrible burn on her leg. To show her appreciation and to hold out her hand in friendship, she gave us this gift. Tonight she came over to help me fix this delicacy. She showed me how to use fresh lime juice to make the meat whiter and take away the fishy taste. We diced up onions, peppers, and garlic to saute with the meat in a lot of butter. Two whole sticks! Definately a heart attack waiting to happen in there! But I decided that if this was my last meal, I couldn't have picked a better one! It was the best sea food I have ever tasted! Even Brian who doesn't even like the stuff, said it was delicious! I tried to impress on the kids that this was a special treat weather we were here or in the states. They are convinced that we should have lobster for every meal. So much for living the life of the deprived missionary family! Pass me some more of that butter slathered "langusta". YUMMY!

Way to go Brian! I felt the same way until I tried my first Maine lobster. It's amazing how this shared gift was able to alter the feelings of one. I can only imagine what will happen as you guys continue to share God's word and His love with so many.

God Bless,
