It was a pretty "Eat Local" meal...lobster from off the coast of Nova Scotia, local new potatoes and fresh mixed greens and herbs for the salads. And for the hold outs...Canadian beef steaks.
Here's the best lobster recipe anywhere from Clearwater who believe in sustainability and responsible stewardship, and the ones we had...1 1/2 pound/680 grams of the juiciest, sweetest, most delicious lobsters found anywhere.
I brought the salads...usually at local Nova Scotian Lobster Suppers, you'll also find potato salad, and I wanted to take it beyond the usual, very mayo versions found around here.
Roasted Potato & Garlic Salad with Mint (somehow, I don't have a photo...too bad, it's almost as pretty as it is delicious) still has some mayo (I like Hellmann's with Olive Oil) and some white wine vinegar. The real stars are the roasted garlic and fresh mint.
Instead of coleslaw, I made an Asian Mango Salad made with local mixed greens with blackberries as well.
The Birthday Girl wanted some of my Katherine Hepburn Brownies for her cake. How could I say no? Lots of candles to blow out, so Boaz helped his mummy.
Dinner was delicious, filled with lots of local goodies and now we're off to Montreal and Toronto. I'm sure I'll get some time to share some photos of our food journey. Don't be jealous.
