How To Cook A Lobster (PEI Style)

When you come visit my Hidden Island Paradise you won't want to miss the taste of our lobster.

I suppose that lobster could be cooked in various ways but you don't have to look beyond learning the art from someone who lives right here.

 The video above walks you through of proper PEI way to cook live lobsters. I can attest to the quality of this method.. I have eaten my share of lobster cooked this way and they were mmmmmm good!

It's your choice of  how you buy your lobster, live or cooked (cooked is usually 50 cents to a dollar, more per pound)

If iyu buy em live and follow the instructions in the video, you WILL experience the unforgettable taste of lobster from my Hidden Island Paradise.

TOP SECRET TIP...PEI Tourism Fell Off A Cliff!

I am showing you an actual real time Google graph for the keyword "PEI Tourism".

Notice anything interesting? I do, The sharp decline in hits on the far Right. As you can see interest peaked last summer when Regis and Kelly were here, dropped away after the off season and began to build again coming into the summer of this year. Right up till the Royal visit and then "Off The Cliff!"

Every cloud has a silver lining. The silver lining in this cloud is a hidden treasure for you. If you have been thinking of coming to visit my Hidden Island Paradise then, NOW IS THE TIME!

With tourism falling like a stone there will be bargains to be had everywhere. I don't have any doubt that you could play let's make a deal and name your own price. Next year will be another year and things will have most likely rebounded by then.

This is a one time opportunity. Unless a tourism miracle happens like, right now! Anyone coming to visit will practically have their own private island. White sand beaches, rolling surf, fresh seafood like lobster (season opens again on August 10th) and Island produce like new Island potatoes, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and all the fresh homemade jams and jellies you can eat. All of the August festivals and fairs including Old Home Week with it's world class horse harness racing Even September can be a beautiful month here on my Hidden Island Paradise with yet another celebration of food with "Fall Flavors".

So, if you were thinking, maybe. I think this silver lining is looking you right in the face. Don't delay, book your vaca  today. Come visit me on my Hidden Island Paradise. I know you won't be disappointed

Shhhh... DON'T tell anyone that you found this post. ONLY share it with your very best friends. Remember to say "Hey" when you come by. Thanks! 

p.s.I enjoyed a beautiful supper this evening at The Station Cafe on the Montague waterfront. A beautiful evening to enjoy a delicious meal out of doors. Thanks Louise! Earlier I spoke with my friend Teri at the Firerose Gallery next door to  "Setting The Trend" in the "Down East Mall". She is just waiting for you to come by for a visit. Oh, and don't forget my friend Cindy at Grandma's Trailside Tea Room. It is also always a favorite stop. You never know I might see you at any of these locations, so don't be shy, say Hi!

I will post again soon.

Grandma's Tea Room Update...

Welcome to Grandma's Tea Room

Well it's the 1st day of July 2011 and The Royals (William and Kate) have arrived in Canada. They landed in Ottawa yesterday afternoon and are by now enjoying the  Canada Day celebrations around Canada's capital city and around Parliament Hill or "The Hill" as it is commonly referred to by many.

Excitement is mounting on Prince Edward Island as it will be the next stop on the Royal Tour.

Grandma's Tea Room is ready after much heartfelt preparation Cindy and Guy are ready to receive guests.

I posted a few days ago "The Royals Are Coming...Let's Do Tea". Do call Cindy to book your reservation for Royal Tea - Hat's and Hospitalitea at Grandma's Tea Room.

Cindy emailed me some pictures of the newly decorated tea room for the Royal Tour and I have uploaded them for you to see too.

So, don't forget, having tea at Grandma's Tea Room is special any time but this, this is really something special. Don't miss this opportunity. Call Cindy at (902) 367-7851

p.s. I had the opportunity to sample the tea and scones in the tea room along with the wonderful hospitality of Cindy, Guy and Sydney (granddaughter) on Wednesday. I have to tell you that you will not be disappointed. The tea and scones are the best ever!  As was the conversation and overall Hospitalitea....
