On a roll

This coming Saturday my darling and I will embark on our longest training run — a full 26.2 miles — in preparation for the Marathon du Medoc. We’ll start at our home near Greenlake, wind north through the neighborhood and down to Golden Gardens, head along Shilshole to the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, cross over to Commodore Park, head south along the train tracks to Myrtle Edwards, continue along the waterfront to Jackson where we’ll head east to Lake Washington Blvd. We’ll continue along the boulevard, hopefully catching glimpses of the Blue Angels. We’ll then head up Madison to the arboretum, then over to UW, where we’ll pick up the Burke-Gilman trail. Cut through Cowen Park, then make our way back to Greenlake. Run around the north end, then stumble our way back home.

So, WHY is this relevant to a food blog? Well, I determined over a month ago what we’ll enjoy for our victory lunch: lobster rolls! The one problem — you can’t find traditional New England-style rolls here on the west coast. They’re the ones that are split at the top, with flat sides for grilling. But fortunately a quick call to Mom and Dad rectified the situation, and here’s what landed on my doorstep yesterday:

New England rolls

I’ll be sure to let you know how they turned out!

  1. Fab choice! After my stint of living on the East Coast, I fell in love with those! Enjoy!

  2. People here on the West Coast just don’t get the concept of PROPER rolls for lobster rolls! My mom felt totally silly mailing these to me, but the postal clerk said it happens all the time. Now if I could just find the right type of clams for New England style fried clams (they’re the big ones with the bloated stomachs. Yummy!)
