Blue Bracelets and a Bath: Funny Friday

Funny Friday:a multi-blogger challenge: one picture, five captions,  | developed and run by | #MyGraphics

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Here's today's picture. It was submitted by Me.

1. Louise Lobster: I don't think we're in Kansas any more.
Loretta Lobster: Actually, I don't think we're in Maine any more, I'm pretty sure we may very well be in Kansas.
Louise Lobster: Then quick, click your claws together 3 times and repeat after me "there's no place like home, there's no place like home . . ."

2. Leonard Lobster: Looks like there's nothing to worry about, guys, that nice lady seems to be preparing a bath for us.

3. Linda Lobster: I agree with Leonard, there's nothing to worry about, that nice lady even gave us these pretty blue bracelets.
Louise Lobster: I don't know, mine's a bit tight.

4. Husband (walking into the kitchen and looking at the floor): Is that dinner?
Wife (rolling her eyes): No, they just stopped by for coffee.

5. Little Boy (walking into the kitchen and looking at the floor): Mommy! You got me new pets!
Mom: Well, for the next half an hour maybe, but I wouldn't get too attached to them if I were you.

And now for something yummy. Not lobster, but if you're looking for a delicious Grilled Lobster Roll (can substitute shrimp or crab, btw) recipe, it's just a link click away:

Pear and Orange Tartlets

1 unbaked refrigerator pie crust
1 TBSP butter
2 Bosc pears
2 TBSP brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 TBSP orange marmalade
1 tsp candied ginger, finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped pecans
*Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place 12 tartlet liners onto a baking sheet. 
*Using a 3 inch round cookie cutter or a 3 inch round mouth of a glass, cut the crust into as many 3 inch circles as will fit. Roll out the remaining crust and continue to cut out circles until you have a dozen.
*Gently press each crust circle into and up the sides of each of the liners. Prick the bottoms with a fork. Bake for 5 minutes, cool completely, then remove the crust from the tartlet liners if desired (can serve in the liners).
*While the crust is cooling, core and peel the pears. Chop into small cubes.
*Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped pears. Cook and stir for about 7 minutes, just until they begin to soften. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and cook for 1 more minute.
*Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in the marmalade, ginger, and pecans. Set aside to begin to cool for 15 minutes, then spoon the filling into the cooled tartlet crusts.


  1. Bwahahaha! Perfect! I think I'll think twice before stopping by your house for coffee, though... ;)

  2. I was afraid you were going to make pear and lobster tarts. Gee, what a relief! Our farm stands are getting ready to close for the season, alas. The short season of somewhat local pears is drawing to a close, double alas. P.S. our local supermarket steams the lobsters for free so we don't have to listen to them complain about their blue bracelets. Oh and p.s. you didn't just give away where you live, did you?

    1. Back home they steam them for you too. They may have here I'm not sure, but since they were in such short supply and people lined up at 9am, I had to either cook them myself or have them for breakfast.

  3. I am happy I dropped by but no coffee please, it's yuck

  4. Love your comments and a recipe I can make for Mike! Win Win in my book!

  5. The pie looks absolutely fab, great job!

  6. Heeheehee! Maybe they are in Kansas, at least, if you are in Kansas. In Louisiana, our lobster are called crawfish and we don't have to band them, fortunately.

    1. Crawfish are delish, but Maine lobster is my absolute favorite.
