What I Ate – Fresh Lobster

We’ve had beautiful weather around here. I am enjoying it while it lasts. Heard there’s a storm coming soon.

Admiring the  last of the ripe oranges. They are sour though :(

And enjoying the last of the beautiful plumerias. It might be the last bloom until next season. My mother-in-law gave us a few plumeria plants. They are still in pots, but we need to plant them and find them a permanent place in our garden.

We are taking a trip soon so I am trying to eat up the last of the dairy products in our refrigerator.

Breakfast this morning was a yogurt bowl. A cup of greek yogurt, 1 large honey crisp apple and granola.

I love the taste of creamy, thick yogurt mixed with crunchy apple and granola. This combo is usually my afternoon snack but it’s great for breakfast too.

Fresh Mexican Grill food for lunch.

I love fresh salsa so this is one of the reasons why I love eating at Rubio’s Restaurant. I eat a total of 8 mini-cups of salsa for one plate of food.

I got the Fish Taco combo. This is my favorite plate from Rubio’s. Simple but tasty.

I requested black beans on the side instead of the regular refried beans.

Chris cooked something special for dinner.

It’s now lobster season and Chris caught some fresh fish (halibuts) and lobster this week. You can read more about his diving hobbies on his blog.

He cooked lobster stir fry. He used fresh vegetables, jalapenos, cilantro, oyster sauce and other spices. It was delicious.

It was a great meal to welcome the beginning of lobster season. Hopefully we can host a dinner party with friends soon and include lobster in our menu. We talked tonight about how lucky we feel to have access and being able to eat fresh food, especially fresh seafood.

Hope you are having a good week so far!

  7. Hubby and I used to frequent Rubios a lot when we lived in San Diego. Heck, there was one on campus at the main center. LOVED their fish tacos. When we moved back up north we couldn’t find any Rubios anywhere. But now, they built one just down the street from us. I don’t know if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. LOL.
