“Entertaining is not about perfection; it is about connection.”
Lucky for my friend whose birthday is January 4, we are returning from our Maine winter holiday about that time bringing her favorite crustacean, lobster, for a birthday dinner. Of course, that’s not hard duty since we like it, too.
All our big lobster dishes are in Maine, so improvising would have to work this night.
and handmade salad plates, each one different, from Ravello, Italy, work for the accompanying roasted potatoes and baked tomato. Ordinarily we would have corn on the cob, but this time of year it’s just not the same as summer corn.
A casual table at best but perfect for the occasion.
Oh, I have to tell you about this wonderful platter. It was given to me for Christmas by a wonderful friend who, when she saw it, thought lobster. Only after the fact did she realize the images were crabs, not lobster. Does it matter? I love the platter, it’s just the right size for piling on lobsters and, best of all, it will remind me of her every time I use it.
