I may have mentioned at some point last week that we had some fresh lobster that needed to be consumed. Friday night was the night. The boy and I made a Lobster and corn chowder, biscuits (Grands) and cooked up some lobster meat plain. We also cracked open a bottle of Port that we bought during our tour of the Finger Lakes. We opened the port primarily because we needed brandy for the chowder and we didn’t have any. 🙂 The port worked just as well. It was a very yummy and lovely dinner. Even if it indicates that we are now getting old. Drinking a glass of wine while cooking dinner…sigh, what have we come to? 😀

Wanna see our yummy dinner?

A complete meal, bowl of chowdah, fresh lobstah, a biscuit and a glass of port.

I surprised myself with how much I really enjoyed the port. It also gave me a bit of a kick. 🙂 I wasn’t expecting that. The bottle had enough for a glass for each of us and the 2 tbsp we needed for the chowder. Perfect portion.
