    I'll try the scampi recipe. I also want to try something, well you know, spectacular that will have them talking about this Christmas for years to come.

    Okay, so here is how it went....


    I barbecued lobster, I did try it out on my own family first...

    I boiled them first for 10 minutes then I soaked them in a butter & garlic sauce then laid them on their back on the BBQ. You can pretty much tell when they are done by color, bright red = done. I must say so myself because none of y'all tasted them, they were tres magnifique!

    The salad was, (what else?) crab salad.

    I made corn chowder with lobster (instead of the lobster bisque), shrimp scampi (thank you Mr. P it were great), clams on a half-shell and a crab alfredo to round the dinner out.

    For desert we had bananas foster...

    I believe my status as the best culinary artist in the family has now been cemented, everybody had more than their share and left barely able to walk.
