How would you like delicious meals jam packed full of Gourmet Lobster, delivered right to your door? Well, that's exactly what happened to me, a few weeks ago. Hancock Gourmet Lobster sent me a goodie box of Lobster Pot Pies and Lobster Mac 'n Cheese. The kids were beyond excited and decided that we should save our lobster deliciousness until Daddy's day off.
Lobster has always been a favourite in this house. I remember about 14 yrs ago, Hubby and I went to Houston TX to visit some of his family. They ended up bringing us to a restaurant, which served all you can eat lobster. Hubby was in heaven and ended up polishing off 13 lobsters, while the rest of us sat in awe at the ease in which he tore those lobsters apart and practically inhaled them, LOL. Last summer when we took our trip to the East coast of Canada, one of our first stops was the fish market, to pick up some lobster. So, when the opportunity to try Pemaquid Point Lobster Pot Pies and Port Clyde Mac 'n Cheese presented itself, I could not resist.

|how cute is that pastry lobster?!?|
When I first opened the pot pie box, I fell in love. Even before eating them, I loved the the cute little pastry lobster on the crust and loved that they came in reusable ramekins. It made me want to bake them up, just that much more. After all, we eat with our eyes first and who could resist a cute pastry lobster? The mac 'n cheese looked equally delicious. I loved the topping, which I was certain would turn into a crispy delicious crust, while baking.
I have to say, that I never expected these meals from Hancock Gourmet Lobster, to be as delicious as they were. These were jam packed with huge pieces of lobster. Usually with similar products, you'd find 3-4 pieces of lobster, if lucky, but you should have seen the large pieces of deliciously sweet and savoury lobster in both the pot pies and mac 'n cheese. Hubby and Mr.B loved the mac 'n cheese best, while Queenie and I enjoyed the lobster pot pie. I do wish, however, that there would have been a few veggies in the pot pie. The puff pastry cooked up beautifully, and was a delicious buttery contrast to the savoury sweet lobster bisque type filling. The mac 'n cheese was ooey gooey delicious, with a great crispy topping, overflowing with chunks of delicious lobster. I have to say that both these dishes would be something I'd be proud to serve to dinner guests, and I'd even be tempted to try to convince them I made them myself (tee hee).
