Maine Lobster Rolls

Author Notes: Nothing says "summer" like a Maine lobster roll. It is so easy, but super luxurious & special. You can use left- over lobster meat from a previous feast or you can buy a lobster or two & add them to boiling water for 3-4 minutes until the lobster shell turns pink. Then remove the meat. You can also buy already cooked/shelled lobster meat from your local fish market.we eat. happy.
