Broiled Lobster Tail

The Delightful Broiled Lobster TailI can’t quite believe 2014 is coming to a close. My family and I had a really whirlwind year. We had two engagements, two weddings, and a baby born this year! I married an incredible man and left my job at Nestle to pursue a new career. I do believe this calls for a celebration.

Though my husband and I are going out to a neighborhood restaurant for dinner this year, I firmly believe that you don’t have to leave the house to celebrate on New Year’s Eve. An intimate night with close friends and family, great food, and a television set for the count down are really all I need. It’s also much easier on the wallet – especially now! Whole Foods is having their once a year sale on lobster tails. Instead of $9.99 each, they are $12 for two – such a good deal! I bought 6 and am keeping 4 in the freezer. I got this recipe for lobster tails from my dad. He usually cooks them on a grill, but, since I live in a NYC condo, the broiler is my best option. To go with the lobster, I also made Truffled Cauliflower Mash and a Kale “Wedge” Salad.
