T Stands for Dreaming of Summer

After a doctor appointment, we decided to stop and have lunch at the 99 Restaurant, one of our favorite chains. We had been there the week before and the restaurant was offering a Lobster Fest, either Lobster Mac n' Cheese or a Lobster Casserole. 

Since I had the excellent Lobster Casserole, I was thinking of getting either salmon or Sweet Potato Encrusted Haddock, when the waitress said, "Did you hear that the Hot Buttered Colossal Lobster Roll is back on the menu"

Say no more! Summah Time!


For my beverage, I had the Bubble Green Tea (peach green tea with a splash of orange juice and mango flavored pearls).  Himself had a Pepsi. We also had a bowl of popcorn. Eaten before a picture was taken.


We decided to make our meal a 3 course meal. Add soup, salad, and get a petite dessert. I chose Seafood chowder and Himself got a salad with ranch dressing.


Oh, we also ordered the Short Rib Flat Bread. From their description: Crisp flatbread glazed with red pepper pesto topped with caramelized onions, braised short ribs, mushrooms and mozzarella and provolone cheeses. Delicious!


Himself likes the Smothered Sirloin Tips, mashed potatoes and Cole slaw. Don't eat!


I ordered the Hot Buttered Colossal Lobster Roll with fries, cole slaw, and a side of Summah sunshine. Oh, wait. That's a cup of drawn butter. Is it July, yet?


I forgot to take pictures of the desserts. Himself had the Peanut Butter Petite Treat (picture from the 99 Restaurant Menu). I had the Caramel Apple Cheesecake. Scrumptious!

  1. It's nearly bedtime for me, and now I'm STARVING. These are the most appetizing meals. I'm super impressed and want a salad (not fond of chowder) or some other soup, the flat bread, and the lobster roll, something I've never had. Your Bubble Green Tea sounds very nice, too, although I'm not into cold drinks at the moment. However, since you are wishing for summer, it's the perfect addition to your summertime meal this T Tuesday. Thanks for sharing and NO thanks for making me so hungry (grin).

    1. Their lobster rolls are one of the best. This one is stuffed with just lobster meat. No mayonnaise and no salad stuff.

  14. My mouth was watering reading this post and seeing the photos. I have got to get to a 99 Restaurant near me! I hope the weather cooperates for us later this week. Then Valentine's Day looks dry but very cold. Ugh. Happy T-Day! (And I loved your cow flying by comment on my blog and in your email reply to me.)

  15. Such a shame I rarely can have seafood. No, wrong. I cannot have seafood. Fish is all I get down (I made fish-fingers on Sunday, does that count?).
    Sweets are out of the question, too. "Brrrr" - it´s the genes, neither, not Dad nor Mum liked sweets.
    So. I´m totally cool (that Pizza looks yummy, though? Seafood? Then I´m out).
