Project 365 Day 185

Happy Fourth of July to my American friends and Happy Father's Day to all the Dads in my family.

Today we hosted our annual Father's Day lobster boil.  My parents were in Florida on the actual Father's Day, so we had a brunch with dh's family then and postponed the feast until today.  Cooking and preparing lobster is a bit of a messy job, and the little cracker tools you sometimes see in restaurants are not particularly useful for breaking the shells on a large quantity of lobsters.

We boil them in a huge pot outdoors and then the "dads" look after the messy bits before we all sit down to eat.  In this pic you see my dad (left) and dh's dad (right) using the most efficient tools:  hands, cleaver and hammer!

Top this off with a variety of cold salads and you get the makings of a truly delicious meal!
