|From Lobster Dinner by Dad|
Mom had told me that Dad had become quite the professional at cooking lobster, so I asked if it was in the budget to have a lobster dinner. “Is that what you want for your birthday dinner?” asked Mom. My birthday’s not for another month, but I’ll be in the Bronx then, and won’t have enough time to come to Maine. I said yes, and made sure to have my camera to document the process.
My brother was right when he said that Dad had an impressive apparatus for boiling lobsters. It was a fun process to watch as he steamed the clams (steamers) first, and then the lobsters themselves.
