Lobster II

OK so here's the deal...if something is really fantastic, there's no reason you can't do it two weekends in a row with a different set of guests! I felt like we really got the lobster dinner under control last week so we knocked it out again to another round of rave reviews. We even repeated our trivia questions, though Amy sewed fresh bibs! I kept things interesting for myself by switching up the salad and dessert. Greg had an awesome idea to make mini avocado and toasts ala Cafe Gitane to accompany my salad of mixed greens, cucumber and pluouts. And the best dessert of the summer, by far, was blueberry pie ala mode. A million blueberries later, it was the perfect finale for lobster dinner. How nice to reuse last week's grocery list!
Who ate lobsters during colonial times? Servants and children, as they were considered a poor man's food
