Thanks so much for your attention! Hoping you can advise me on my live lobsters. I bought live lobsters at 11am on Tuesday in Rhode Island.
They packed them in paper bags and ice bags and I put them in an insulated bag and flew home to Colorado. Once home my husband said to put them in a cooler and put the cooler outside on the back deck (18 degrees out). Its now Wednesday night and I just Googled ideas on how to cook them. I now realize they should have been in the refrigerator!! I just now put them in there. The temp did not get above 30 today where I live.. but they were in a cooler with a lid!
I WAS planning on a lobster dinner for friends on Friday night. I'm now reading there is no way that will work. So right now it is Wednesday night at 11pm. I can't cook them right now! The soonest I can cook them might be Thursday around 3. Does it even matter? Have I missed my opportunity? Do I have to throw them away? Thanks
