Happy Father's Day!


We were also celebrating the first piano recital of the 2 boys, so I thought a very special meal was in order :-)

The steaks were seasoned with Barberian's steak seasoning and seared in a cast iron skillet, 4-6 minutes per side. The lobsters were simply boiled in a huge pot of water for about 15 minutes. The potatoes were baked in the convection oven for about 45 minutes. We had some drawn butter and lemon/lime wedges for the lobster and some sour cream and chives for the potato. To drink, it was a bottle of Cab Merlot.

It was awesome. The lobster fat was so creamy, we groaned with every delectable bite. The steak provided a salty, meaty counterpoint to the richness of the lobster. And to top it all off, we had warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Oh, caloric nirvana!
