I'm 26!

My birthday is today and I've always wanted a crawfish boil birthday party, but by November the season is well over.
New England's answer to this is the lobster boil!!



I cooked up some spicy potatoes, corn, mushrooms and onions and poured everything out on the table!





And then came the lobsters. It was a BYOLob party so everyone brought the lobster of their choosing.


Ian's chosen lobster weighed in at a whopping 3lbs! Dwarfing ours and doubling each of their weight in one fell swoop.

















Amazing! They were so yummy!


And I made pecan pie for dessert (over which we both laid hands and said prayers for the successfulness of the crust-- they worked by the way)
Best pecan pie ever!! Another one might be on the Thanksgiving menu!

  2. I don't know what Ian was thinking. That lobster is ridiculous. Looks like you had a great time (and the pie crust looks perfect).
