Cold to Hot ~ Back Therapy & Attorney Office ~ Picture of the Day ~ John Montagu ~ Ruth's Marinated Mushrooms ~ Jack & Gracie Elliott ~ National Lobster Day ~ How I Cook A Lobster Tail

Good 37º ice on the barn roof clear morning. 
Another clear sunny day yesterday. After starting at 35º with ice on the barn roof, we topped at 87º.

Yesterday I saw Stacy for my 1 hour back therapy session. Ahhhhhh..... feels so good. 

Then a quick stop at the attorney's office for an appointment to get some information changed on my Advanced Health Care Directive. This attorney office name always has cracked me up... Heuertz and Monen. If it hurts he will be moanan! LOL. Yvonne, who works at the front desk said people stop a lot and take pictures of their sign!
Picture of the Day
Interesting about John Montagu ....
 John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, was a British statesman who succeeded his grandfather as the Earl of Sandwich in 1729, at the age of ten. He is best known for the claim that he was the inventor of the sandwich. A very conversant gambler, Lord Sandwich did not take the time to have a meal during his long hours playing at the card table. Consequently, he would ask his servants to bring him slices of meat between two slices of bread; a habit well known among his gambling friends. Because John Montagu was the Earl of Sandwich others began to order "the same as Sandwich!" – and the "sandwich” was born.
If you like mushrooms, you will love these! It was published in Epicurious in 1998. I put this on my blog 4 years ago. Made them lots of times.
Ruth's Marinated Mushrooms
2 parts oil (salad oil, or 1/2 salad oil and 1/2 olive oil.. I use all olive oil)
1 part lemon juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
ground pepper
Worcestershire sauce
chopped parsley
Dry mushrooms thoroughly. If brown, soak in mixture of one part lemon juice to three parts water to bleach.
Mix oil, lemon juice, crushed garlic in a bowl. Add mushrooms. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Worchestershire sauce. Add several pinches of basil, oregano, and chopped parsley.
Let marinate at least two hours in refrigerator or one hour out. Stir while marinating.

National Lobster Day is observed each year on September 25th.  
The simplest way to enjoy Lobster is boiled then dipped in melted butter.  A couple of favorite lobster recipes include Lobster Newberg and Lobster Thermidor.  It is also the main ingredient in soup, bisque, lobster rolls and salads.
Large lobsters are estimated to be 50 years old.
Celebrate by enjoying a delicious lobster meal at your favorite seafood restaurant or by cooking a lobster dish at home.  Use #NationalLobsterDay on social media.
 Following are some “tried and true” recipes for you to enjoy.
According to the Guinness World Records, the largest lobster ever caught was in Nova Scotia, Canada, weighing 44.4 lbs
In 2014, Senators Angus King and Susan Collins of Maine drafted a joint resolution designating September 25 as National Lobster Day. Recognizing the men and women in an industry with a long and rich heritage, the proclamation celebrates the lobster from sea to table.
The easiest way to cook lobster was taught to me by my nephew Jimmy who had been a cook at a restaurant for a time in Tahoe..... pull the meat out of the shell by making a cut down the entire length of the shell on top.
Put the meat on top of the shell, brush with clarified butter and sprinkle with paprika.
Bake at 400º for 15-18 minutes. PERFECT!!!
