Lakeside Clam Bake
Kris and I did a clam bake for our friends and family yesterday. On the menu were steamers, little necks, lobsters, shrimp, and kielbasa all in the pot. Cooked separately was corn on the cob and roasted potatoes. The only other ingredients were steam, lemons, and salt; and of course, 3 pounds of drawn butter. We served the entire meal dumped out on a table in the center of our yard. It was great watching everyone crowd around the table and helping themselves. The communal aspect of this meal makes it a lot of fun. Some take a plateful and find a seat and others just graze off the table. Either way, it was a great meal.
