Steamed lobster and corn on the cob, new potato salad with chives, dill, and shallots, and a bibb lettuce salad with avocado and red onion. Drawn butter (not optional) on the side. And that bottle of Jean A. B. Sauvignon Blanc? Cue the nervous-by-way-of-sheer-joy laughter. Because I didn't know how else to react.
It might have come later than anticipated this year, but I successfully got my lobster dinner in before Summer's end. Next up? The perfect lobster roll.
