The Food We Ate In Cape Breton

After visiting the Lobster Factory we picked out lobster for our annual family cook out in Cape Breton
The cook out is always a highlight of our trips to Nova Scotia
This is what we brought our lobster back in
We also made a quick stop at a crab factory and grabbed a bunch of fresh crab

We brought these guys home
Then my father in law got busy with the cooking! 
Dr. J and his dad

The crab in the pot

Lobster in the pot
We ate like kings and had a ton of leftovers- 
The best leftovers ever- fresh crab and fresh lobster

Here are some of the culinary treats we made:
I made lobster broth- it needed very little to make it delicious and nutritious 

I added onions, garlic, bay leaves and celery

Lobster salad

Which for some reason tastes best on white bread buns

Crab salad 
Dr. J made lobster and crab Etouffee

It was amazing over rice

And we made crab omelette's

Delicious Memories!
