lobster dinner, bon fire & smores!

what a life this is. beautfiful sunset dinner that we cook up together! tonite on the menu, fresh lobster (while me n matthew made a pasta dish out of our lobster, everyone else has it whole, w/butter garlic dip), fresh grilled corn, sauteed spinach, fresh tomatoes, long grain rice, wine or sake. my pasta was also amazing... using grilled portabello and grilled tomatos w/simple sauteed garliced mushrooms... w/fresh lobster chunks and feta cheese!
great dinner.
then off we go to the Mansion Beach (got permit for bon fires everyday, but we finally made it)! it was the perfect nite for it.
no high wind, breezy enought to carry the fire.
we built it right away, properly set up, directly on top of a pallet, perfect base. i was the fire master! kept it going all nite til midnite. n had smores with these ultra long sticks Dave had the brilliant idea of using. saw lots of shooting stars.
the only thing w/burning a pallet is tht u hv to pick out the nails afterwards. but tht's also kinda fun.
one thing i wanted to say about the lobster dinner.
i didn't realize until my frnds were talking about it... the scent n juices of lobster really attracts mosquitos! all week ther were no need for bug spray n last nite... wow, mosquitos galore.
even today we couldn't get rid of them.

look at the fire i built!
