We were just surprised by the FedEx Guy who knocked at our door at 7 PM tonight to deliver a box sent from Boston. (We are originally from up there but live in NC).

It contained a lobster dinner for two...and yup...the lobsters are live!!! Plus, stuffies (stuffed clams which you bake), white creamy New England Clam Chowder and all the gadgets and accessories need to complete and complement such a dinner feast!

Our very best friends knew we were missing real North Atlantic lobsters so they took pity on us I guess. For those who are wondering where they were shipped from...why Legal Seafoods of Boston of course!!

Tonight we feast!!! Tomorrow we remember this blessed event.

Anyone else wish to share similar events?

Last March our son had surgey in Charlotte,NC. The night before he and I went out to dinner and they had mussels in white wine sauce-I ate so many. Well after his surgery and taking care of him for 10 days I returned home to MN and guess what arrived? 5 Lbs of mussels from Seattle!! Thought we'd died and went to heaven. The two of us wiped them out in one sitting with a big loaf of garlic bread,

Wish he'd do it for Christmas.

Merry Christmas.

I remember years ago when I was little my Father owned a large manufacturing company. Well the people he did business with sent us baskets of fruit, baskets of meat and cheese, boxes of candy, it was almost like a food orgy at Christmas.

Ok, let's try to think together with all our might and send those thoughtful children of yours a telepathic message...."Send more mussels...send more mussels...Mama needs mussels"...Can't hurt!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year y'all

PS...Bob and Dianne...send more lobsters!

I moved out of state once (I'm from Chicago and have since returned). One Christmas my cousin sent me Chicago deep dish pizza from Lou Malnati's via Fed Ex. It was packed in dry ice and ready to bake. That was my favorite food gift.
