My Happy Place

For my first post, I'm going to talk for a second about my happy place before I get back to enjoying the day with my family.   I Love the beach!  There's nothing more relaxing to me than hearing waves crashing in the background.  My kids are collectors and I just prop my chair at the waters edge and let them collect clams, sand crabs, shells, and whatever else they might want to collect.
All those clams we're collecting got me thinking about dinner and I'm in the mood for fish.      Summers almost over and I'm going to squeeze in 1 more lobster and clam night. 
I have the absolute best way to make these two things which are me and Josie's favorite!

21 Day Fix approved LOBSTER
Lots of people I know go to Jordan's and have them steam the lobsters.  I used to do that too.  But I started steaming my own and man, do they come out delicious.  All you need is a lobster pot from Bed, Bath and Beyond.  It's under $50 (especially with a coupon).  Here's what I do.

Lobster (we get 4- 1 lb and a quarter)
Sea Salt (about Tablespoon)
Water (about a quart)
Clams (I like a dozen cherry stones)

1.  Put water in bottom section of pot. Put the lid on without the steamer section to bring to a faster boil. Add salt.  Bring to a boil.
2.  Put live lobsters in steamer part of pot.  Lol, I definitely have my husband do this! Put steamer part on bottom section of steamer and cover.
3.  If you use 4 1 lb and a quarter, leave the lobsters for 20 minutes.   Then add the clams and leave for another 5-10 minutes.
4. That's it!  So easy and they are so much better then getting them pre-steamed.  Sometimes I'll use a tsp of melted butter but when you make your own, you might not even need it.

This is just your red containers!!  Make sure you have a bunch left over for the day and ENJOY!!
