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!


  1. A birthday to remember!!!!! Happy Birthday


  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).
