I just purchased 30 lbs of live Maine Lobster at a supermarket here on the CT shoreline for $3.99/lb., They steamed them too - did we ever have a holiday feast!!!

Happy Labor Day to all of you!!!

Great price!!
We go to visit my sister in Boston, and friends on the Cape every Spring or Summer, and the cheapest we've paid was $2.99 a lbs last November when my niece got married....
They are usually around $4.99 a lbs, but much more expensive on the Cape....
So much easier when they steam them for you....

Sorry Billy, I lost my invitation.

That is definitely a good price compared to here. I think it averages around $12.99.

Happy Labor Day to everyone as well!

Thanks! Most appropriate in a metaphoric way.

When I can afford them I have them steamed too at the store. My mom once told me I was being cruel to steam them live. So I lie to her when I take Blue Crabs I catch and steam live out to her and dad. I say they came that way.

It's really strange that lobster is less expensive than steak. In fact, most seafood is less expensive now. I have to wait for hamburger (ground round) to go on sale to buy it. It normally runs around $4.49/lb., and will go on sale for $3.79 to $3.99/lb.

No doubt the summer holidays are long past, the price of supermarket lobster is up to $8.99/lb on sale!!! It definitely is Autumn!!!

At least here, in New England, we still have great color in our trees!

Actually, $8.99/lb. is a good price for here. The fall foliage is one thing I miss about living in (S.W.) Virginia. The mountains were beautiful this time of year.

Penny, "I ain't" paying $3.99 for ground round..I hope! I wait till it's $1.99 or less and stock the freezer up.
