Comment on Lobster Noodle with Hot and Spicy Scallion Butter by Megan | Make Eat Repeat.

Do people actually pull off the elastic bands before cooking them? Yikes! I’m a Mainer and I have yet to cook my own lobster but you have inspired me to give it a try…even if it may be terrifying. I’m ready! This is a great sounding recipe!

Fiddlehead Pasta Recipe
I think fiddleheads are great! I bought a GIANT bag for my husband and I and was planning on offering some to my brother but I ended up eating them all in 2-3 sittings!
It makes me wonder how much more people would appreciate most vegetables if they had a short season like fiddleheads and weren’t able to find them all year long ..

Beef and Ale Stew with Buttermilk Scallion Dumplings
This sounds great, I love the addition of the dumplings to this and I am going to try and make it before warmer weather approaches.
Also, I hear you on the snow! It seems like an every day event lately and I kind of forget what a full sunny day looks like. I currently live down a dirt road in the middle of the Maine woods so the mud has been insane to drive through and, yes, I know it will get worse! Soon we will be moving back to Portland in May/June…I am counting down the days!

Chorizo y Papas Grilled Cheese (Homemade)
I love the different textures in this! Yuummmm, guess I’ll have to wait until next week to cut back on meat 😉

Crusty Chicken Thighs with Mushroom Ragout
The title “crusty” is why I clicked over…yum! What a great idea to cook it in a cast iron skillet, I will be giving this a try!
