The First Lobster Mac and Cheese Blog!

Welcome, everyone!  This is the first blog post on the first lobster mac and cheese blog… ever.  Yes, it’s ok to laugh… I am too.  What started out as a simple search just so happened to turn into a bonafide conquest of all the best lobster mac and cheese recipes.  And I’m not talking about the kind you’d find on the back of a Velveeta box…. no, I’m talking about the Top Secret, “grandmother gave me this 20 years ago” kind of recipe.

Yes, mac and cheese is great as it is, but I’m a barrel-chested American.  I need protein.  Let the high schoolers, marathon runners, and sorority sisters have the regular stuff – I need some meat!  And what better way than to combine an American staple with some good ole’ fashion lobster.  Not the fake stuff either…  I’m talking REAL lobster mac and cheese.  The kind any lobster boat captain would be proud to eat (I’m pretty sure they eat lobster mac and cheese).

Now, I realize the price of lobster can be pretty darn expensive (at least if you live in the midwest, like me), so I’ll be on the hunt for some of the best overnight-shipped lobster deals out there.  If I’m lucky, I’ll be able to provide my readers with a nice coupon code for one of the Maine lobster companies I’ve got my eyes on.  And if that happens, my lobster mac and cheese production will sky-rocket.

So please, join me on my quest in finding the best lobster mac and cheese recipes.  If you happen to have a good one – please, share!
