Friday I went to Costco right when they opened to pick up a few things (mainly milk). Check-out was speedy because the lines were short for once! Upon arriving home and unloading the car I realized that I had something that I did not buy (nor would really consider purchasing) in my cart and this something was $32 worth of lobster!

Immediately I called Costco and proceeding to explain how I was surprised to find this with my other items. Apparently the old man in front of me had purchased them but it was left on the check stand and was put into my cart instead. Joe (real name) thanked me for my honesty but said that the man had already come in realizing he had been robbed of his pricey dinner and told me to enjoy the lobster because if I brought it in they would have to throw it away!

First of all, I like seafood but have had lobster like maybe once (can't remember if it was crab or lobster) so I had no idea what to do with it!

If you ever have this problem here's what you do:

Cut shell in half right down the middle.
Combine butter, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper and pour over lobster
Broil 15 minutes
Garnish with lemon juice and have the butter sauce from above in little bowl for dipping

It was tasty!
