My nephew, his partner and a lady friend of theirs are in town and coming to dinner. The guys used to live here and come back every summer and we always entertain them.
Our menu tonight will be lobsters, haddock chowder (made Sunday) peach ice cream I made, corn bread & I think store bought cole slaw maybe another summer salad or a green salad. It is another muggy day & I want to avoid cooking anymore than I have to. Otherwise I would have corn on the cob.
Wow I am coming over what a spread!
What a great menu. I'm not sure I would do another salad -- the coleslaw would be good with what you're serving.
Can I come, too?

Well our meal was delicious. The guests brought two bottles of wine (white and red) a blueberry pie from a specialty bakery and a huge bunch of field flowers they had just cut.
I also served sliced tomatoes and cucumber. Since they had corn on the cob already husked at the store I served that too.
Although I love flowers, my DN always does this and it is hard scrambling to put flowers in an appropriate vase when you are dealing with a meal and so most of them did not really make it through the night even though in water. There is not time to strip all foliage and re-cut and properly arrange.
Oh we had shrimp and grapes to start. BEst of all there is pie left over!
Oh, those lobsters look so yummy!
Corn on the cob can be nuked and therefore not heat up the kitchen additionally.
For two cobs, wrap each in waxed paper and nuke 1.5 minutes then flip and do another 1.5 min.
