Lobster Roll Dinner
Aug. 19, 2012
First off, apologies for the lack of posts in recent weeks. Hopefully the delicious shots from this church supper back in August make up for it.
Believe it or not, this was my first lobster roll dinner. I know, I know...shocking. My mom and her sister were the instigators to attend this event. It was held on the same day as the Conquerall Bank Planked Halibut Supper. That was my first choice, but we checked that one out last summer so we decided to try something different this time around.
Tickets were sold in advance, by all accounts most were sold before the day of the event. We had no problem finding a table and our plates arrived shortly after we sat down.
The lobster roll was....amazing. I'm not sure what I loved more, the food or the presentation. The cardboard 'sleeve' was just right. The white bread, New England style hot dog roll was perfect. The potato salad sure hit the spot, especially when combined with a nosh of delectable cucumber salad. Not as good as mom's, but a close second!
The desserts were to die for, are the shots making you hungry? I'm getting hungry remembering the great meal.....
For dessert, I sampled the blueberry cake. It was moist and sweet as it should be. There was a dusting of sugar (and...cinnamon?) on the top too. Combined with the usual weak tea (not as good as the Maitland suppers, that's for sure!) it was a great way to end my meal.
We probably lingered longer than 'allowed', but I have seen plenty of oldsters take liberty with their post-meal chats so I didn't feel bad about having an extended sit, digest and chat.
Next summer, keep your eyes peeled for this event and add it to your 'must attend' list!
