Yesterday was my mom's birthday! So we had a very quiet and fun lobster dinner at the shore...which included sparklers (and a small burn, everyone's ok) an awesome Potatoe Salad from my brother in law and a Watermelon, Basil and Feta Salad and my version of a Grilled Caponata and Arugula Salad (click each one for the recipe.) We followed all that up with a strawberry shortcake and as soon as we finished singing "Happy Birthday" fireworks went off, no joke! (The golf club across the street was hosting a wedding and it was literally just perfect timing) But my mom deserves nothing less than lobster and fireworks for her day!
Happy Birthday Mom! I love you VERY much.
