Today my cousins Janet and Larry, and Janet’s husband Dave came up for our annual Lobster Fest. They stopped to pick up the Lobster, steamers and corn all fresh from the sea and the garden, on their way up here and they arrived by 10 o’clock.
I’d been cleaning and puttering all morning and I’d managed to set the table, put out the dishes and I got the pots we would need too.
The Lobsters before being cooked!
When Dave and I unpacked the loot, we worked together deciding which lobsters to cook in which pot and when and where to cook the corn and steamers. For those who do not know, Steamers are Clams.
My cousin Janet took this picture of Dave and me after we put everything we had cooked on the table!
Dave and I cook so well together. Since we had 5 pots that all needed full flame on the burners, we did a bit of juggling and in about 40 minutes (By this time it was about 12:45) we served up the luncheon. If anyone left here feeling hungry, it was their own fault.
We each had a two-pound Lobster, Corn on the Cob, Steamers, and Potato Salad. I never really appreciated the size of a two-pound Lobster until I found myself unable to finish mine!
Janet took this picture of her two-pound Lobster! Just look at that sucker!
I cleaned the rest of my Lobster, and the rest of Jack’s Lobster and we have enough for a nice meal tomorrow. I really must be getting old if I am unable to finish my Lobster!
My homemade potato salad with eggs. A real hit today!
One really great thing about cooking the meal with Dave was that at the end of the meal, Janet washed all the cooking pots. I managed to get all the other dishes into the dishwasher, but all those pots! She made quick work of them, and she told me that she really likes washing dishes. I’m thankful. At this point in the day, I was getting pretty tired.
So Lobster Fest 2019 is over and a success! I love eating Lobster, but more than that, I love getting together with my family! Thanks, Janet, Dave, and Larry!

The two pound lobster looks huge. I could never eat that much, especially with other things. Isn’t it good when you can work with harmony in a confined space like a kitchen.
What a feast!
My eyes popped out when I saw your kitchen and then the plates !! Wow ! what a fest !! Lobsters are very expensive here and only for special occasions, like Christmas or New Year !! I always remember the “Lazy Lobster” I have eaten in Cape Cod !!
Fabulous! Our local IKEA had a lobster festival dinner last Thursday. I had bought tickets to go with my husband, but then had something else on, so my husband invited a friend. I would have loved it for sure!
