Happy Birthday Murica!
So for the 4th of July-I thought, oh I should post one more sea life themed piece of jewelry, my mom owned, as we spent so many 4th of July celebrations together at the beach in Long Island. But the reality is she would not have worn starfish earrings, she probably would have worn big ol' clip on earrings that looked like fireworks exploding. And a crazy red white and blue blouse. Since I am in possession of neither of those, I have decided to post a picture of the fabulous meal we had with our dear friends Peter and Shannon. This is a quintessentially American meal. And I am proud to say, made from scratch. Peter was the MVP, making homemade rolls. As a group we shucked eight lobsters, and managed to save what could have been an undercooked catastrophe, by sautéing the whole lot in butter prior to mixing with mayo, lemon juice, pepper, and LOVE. My mom would have adored this meal, and as butter was generally always her answer to any cooking situation, I'm sure I made her proud.
