The Great Mountain Lobster Boil

Some friends of ours were having a Lobster Bake party, but we already had plans to go up to Show Low for the long weekend. So, we decided to try one on our own. I researched on line and couldn't decide between steaming or boiling. We ordered all the seafood from the seafood restaurant on Baseline in Gilbert. The owner convinced me that boiling was tasty and easy, so a "Lobster Boil" it was.

Sara had everything ready for our picnic.

Brian and Brad in charge of the boiling pot. Here they are adding the potatoes.

Missy and one of the live lobsters. It needs a quick shower before it's final baptism.

The little 1 lb lobsters are called "chickens"

Going in the pot.

Coming out of the pot. mmmm


Wow!! Doesn't that look great? Our boiled lobsters, corn on the cob, red potatoes and shrimp.

I have to say it was pretty easy, delicious, and soooo much FUN!

It was a lot of fun. I think we may have started a new Gregory family tradition. Great weekend, the food was awesome, and the weather was perfect ( almost).
