Going Coastal

I don't know about you, but my mind has been on everything coastal lately.  Here is a party idea that if you are lucky enough to live on or near a coast is perfect for you.  Even if you don't live near the coast you can recreate this in your own backyard! 


A lobster boil is a fun, casual (or formal) way to get friends together and enjoy this fabulous seafood with a nice glass of Chardonnay and get a little messy!  Simple sides complete the feast.  Be sure to have plenty of handi-wipes for your guests.  Oh and don't forget the bibs!


I headed straight to Coastal Living to get the how to on doing your own lobster boil.  You can find some great tips for yours here.
