I’m a runner…and a Triathlete. That runner part of me is always wanting to get back to the Boston Marathon. I qualified, and ran it, several years ago…and have wanted to go back ever since. The last couple of years have been a bit weird for the Boston Marathon (just like most other events) – last year the race was done virtually, and this year they moved the race from April to October. The 2021 Boston Marathon is coming up on Monday…and once again, I did not qualify for it, so I won’t be there.
I won’t be there, but I can still throw a little “Boston Party” right here in Madison. For my Boston Party, I’m serving Lobster Rolls…with a little twist…no lobster! I found this recipe in Food Network Magazine – the headline on the cover read “The New Lobster Roll…IT’S WAY CHEAPER!” Cheaper yes – and pretty darned tasty too! Shrimp Scampi replaces the lobster in these rolls – they’re buttery…and garlicky…and delicious! When I told Dee what I was making, she immediately said that an Octoberfest beer would be perfect with it. She chose a great local beer – “Oktoberfest” from Vintage.
