Last night was the big Lobster Bake at the Hopkins’ home. If you weren’t invited, don’t feel bad…. this was a donation dinner from a fundraising event, so unless you were at the fundraiser and had the winning bid… sorry!
There were eight lovely guests. It is currently 11:30 AM the following morning and Dave and I have just now finally gotten it all cleaned up. Here is a pictorial of the event… recipes to follow.
The lobsters arrive via Fed Ex from Maine.
Lobsters go in… ( an extra special thanks to Peggy for helping with this part and the photos … would have been impossible to take picture of myself doing this!!)
… and they come out!
Layers of sausage, clams, mussels, shrimp, corn, onions, peppers, lemons, spices, and wine…. create a clam bake!
Waiting for the guests to arrive
