Boston, Memorial Day weekend. Friday and Saturday:
Lunch on the waterfront with hubby and Mom (What? The DV has never participated in a lobster boil? Clambake? Wha? Poor deprived hubby ... Mom and I decided to bring on Lobstah Fest for Saturday's lunch.)
Saturday woke to the smell of sauce mom had starting making at 5 AM -- mmmm heaven. (Dinner for Sunday ... today is lobster!)
In the middle of Downtown Boston, neaar the waterfront, is J Hook:
Where we met lunch (and future lobster ravioli):
Boiled 14 pounds of Mo, Larry, Curley and Snappy, stinking up kitchen (Hmmm, we usually do this at the beach house where smells disperse a little better and more quickly ... )
Deck table before being covered with newspaper:
And our lovely view of Boston Harbor:
Above: Salad and amazing foccaccia from the salumeria waiting for tablemates:
|Mo, Larry and Curley on the way. Snappy didn't fit in the ginormous pot, so he went in after.|
Good thing we ate the salad and foccacia first, no room once the lobs and two giant boats of buttah arrived ...
Delicious even for biggies -- 3.5 pounders.
DELICIOUS meal, clean up, nap time again!
Coming next: lobster ravioli!
Thanks for such a great weekend, Mom!
