'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving

Dinner improvised

I was so smug about getting my Thanksgiving dinner purchased on Monday that I completely forgot about what to do for dinner on the night before Thanksgiving.  On Wednesday after work, I stopped by Fairway and Citarella and both were mob scenes.  It was time to forage in the freezer to see what I could come up with.  I know that I live in NYC and there are a million delivery options.  But I think it's a waste of money and it always ends up being something fattening.  I was going to check my freezer to see if dinner could be cobbled together.

Frozen lobster tail from Whole Foods

I looked in the back of the freezer and found a package of frozen lobster tails.  I remember buying them a few months ago and I though they lacked flavor.  But desperate times call for desperate measures (OK, I'm exaggerating a bit), so I defrosted a lobster tail along with some spicey marinara.  They took no time to defrost.  To my surprise, the lobster tail wasn't flavorless at all.  It tasted pretty good.  I served it on top of the marinara along with fresh squeezed lemon juice.  It was delicious - and will be part of my repertoire from now on.
