David, being the master chef that he is, made fresh Lobster Rolls for Valentine’s Day. We’ve talked about making them before, but it’s not exactly an easy Monday night, post-work sort of meal.
Imagine lobster seasoned with garlic and tossed in mayonnaise. Now picture that eaten between a buttery bun. Now it’s ten times better than what you just imagined, right? We love Hawaiian style Macaroni Salad and are well-acquainted with using mayonnaise in our cooking, so adding butter to the mix was the perfect indulgence for a sweet Valentine’s day together.
Seven years have passed since I studied abroad in Shanghai and met some amazing people from around the country. Some of whom I still call my true friends. Jean lives in Chicago and has always held down the East Coast while I’ve stayed over here in Seattle, but we make the most of our reunions when it’s like no time has passed at all. We laugh like crazy people over scenarios that you wouldn’t really understand because we are basically actually totally crazy. Our latest catch up was over brunch at Local 360. The cozy nooks and thick wooden booths were perfect for absorbing the sound of our giggles and guffaws.
First morning glow of the year.
Pre-brunch coffee is always necessary.
