Fried Chicken Flop

Hey everyone - go read about my fifth Yankee Challenge: Fried Chicken here!!! 

It was a bit of a flop - my chicken crust was delish but it wasn't cooked in the middle. However, my mashed taters and collard greens were a hit! There are still a few days left to try the challenge and win some Calphalon and a free T-Shirt. Just cook up some fried chicken and post the story and pics on the Facebook fan page!!!

Lobsta Rolls

One of Mr. Bear and my favorite dishes that my mom makes whenever we go home are Lobster Rolls. They are delicious, easy, and so so yummy - plus they just scream Connecticut! (Some lobster rolls are served cold w/ mayo - ours are hot and buttery, mmmm).
1lb Fresh Lobster Meat
1 stick butter
8 hot dog buns
1. Begin to melt the stick of butter over low-med heat. Add the lobster meat. Cook until butter is melted and lobster meat is tender. 
2. Using a fork and knife, carefully cut the lobster into bite sized pieces. Spoon into a hot dog roll. Sprinkle with parsley. Enjoy alongside homemade french fries and coleslaw!
