Last week I was in Maine with some of my favorite girlfriends - a relaxing and low-key trip that was needed by all! (Many thanks to SARB for inviting us up!) Seeing that we were in Maine, I got my game face on and was ready to eat lots of lobster. In my world, lots = once or twice! Back story - once when I was really little on new years day, I ate lobster and by the end of the day I was sick. I'm sure it had nothing whatsoever to do with the lobster and more likely all of the ice cream I ate that day, but whatever, in my child mind, I decided I must avoid lobster at all costs.
Fast forward some 20+ years, I committed to eating lobster while on vacation because after all the world's best lobster comes from Maine. So 5 days later and 2 or 3 servings of lobster and I can safely say lobster is good stuff! Now I'm not going to start ordering it at restaurants left and right, but at least I now know I can eat it and be ok. Maine not only gave me a relaxing few days, but it also allowed me to conquer my lobster fears!
