Last Nights' Dinner: The Birthday Special

My favorite pal Ms. Knit-Whit and her K-spouse came for dinner last night and we indulged in some dinner deliciousness in honor of her impending birthday. A while ago now she had mentioned wanting to have a lobster roll. Where she got the idea I have no idea, but that was all the incentive I needed to put that on her supersecret birthday suprise dinner menu. It was a little bit of an adventure finding lobster around these parts, but I managed and that was certainly made up for by the fact that the lobster roll is actually a pretty quick and easy cooking endeavour:

I made these in what I understand to be the classic fashion, a bunch of lobster meat with just the slightest coating of mayo and some salt and pepper, (although I couldn't resist adding just the tiniest bit of lemon zest, too) on a buttered, toasted roll. Along side, we had the requisite pile of potato chips and a little butter lettuce, hearts of palm and avocado salad with a tarragon vinagrette. It was a fabulously simple and delicious meal.

Here is an after dinner shot of the our birthday girl and her charming date:

Be sure and head on over to her place to find out what was in the bag!
