Memorial Day Weekend

Hello, hello. I hope everyone had a wonderful (and remembrance-filled) Memorial Day weekend.

I was lucky enough to get together with a few of my family members at our beach house; we enjoyed the sun (it was hotttt), the company and had some fantastic meals filled with amazing conversation.

Saturday night – we had this amazing lobster and shells salad that my aunt and uncle made. An Ina recipe, it did not dissapoint!!

The salad, piled on top of a bed of greens, made for the perfect, light end to the day. I went back for seconds…and maybe a tiny helping of thirds. So. good.

(Cell phone quality pictures? Yay…. haha)

For dessert there was pie, a few cookies (Tates – which are so thin and delicious), and vanilla ice cream. We had blueberry and blueberry/apple crumb pie. They were both so good – but my fave was the apple and blueberry combo.

Pie makes everything better 🙂

On Sunday, we had a wonderful meal of grilled chicken, salad and rice pilaf. An amazing meal outdoors, next to the Atlantic – doesn’t get much better.

Pretty patriotic. haha

Hope you all had wonderful weekends, wherever you are!!

  1. Mmmmm loving the sound of the lobster macaroni salad, but like you said, Ina never disappoints 🙂 my friend had a lobster mac ‘n cheese dish during Memorial Day Weekend — what a better way to start Summer than with some lobster?
