Friends, Christmas is over, and I’ve taken down my tree and done my usual winter cleaning. Instead of spring cleaning, for me, the time after Christmas always warrants a little deep cleaning to get the pine needles, dust and dirt I’ve neglected out of the house.

Time to open the windows, air out the house, freshen up (or change out) the pillows, toss the winter greens and droopy amaryllis blooms, and start over.

It’s also time to think about New Year’s and drop-in guests.

Although I’d say our family loves a good charcuterie board, this week we’ve served these delicious Easy Lobster Roll Sandwich Recipe.

Mm-m-m, lobster. Each bite is a savored treat.

Make the lobster mixture ahead.

We love adding fresh dill.

Right before serving, heat a pan and griddle the rolls for about 2 minutes, until golden brown.

That is the secret to the most buttery, toasty bread :)

  1. I agree……right after Christmas (well New year for me) is a great time to deep clean. I usually wait til the new year to take things down, but I think this year it will be this weekend since I have to drive to seattle on the 1st to pick up my oldest and her hubby from their airport. Not gonna want to take down decor after that.

    Love a good lobster roll. We found a great cafe in Portland that serves an awesome lobster roll.

    Not much going on for us on NYE…maybe later in the day we’ll hit my inlaws for games and fondue.

  2. Looks yummy! I enjoy your blog and love the pics! We live very different lives. It’s -3 here right now so no windows will be opened unless the carbon monoxide detector goes off! Lol. And the Christmas tree stays until New Year’s Day since the first tree pick up isn’t until after that.
