Dawg and Calson..
Great thick loin lamb chops (at least from Costco) are so easy to cook to perfection!
Season however you like, and fry them dry like a ball, on all five sides starting with the flat side of the bone. Don't overthink it..and don't over cook the little darlings.
Pink is best. Perfection!

I haven't made up my mind yet for tonight's dinner. Been watching Food tube all day yesterday, might go for a nice steak pie unless it's too much work.

Went to a fundraiser lobster dinner at a local yacht club. It was prepared by a group of volunteers who work in the maritime industry, and proceeds go to scholarships for maritime education, local environmental groups, etc. We've been to these before. They do about 20 of these per year, and have it down to a science. There were 80 people at last night's dinner, and they do them for up to 200 guests.

Dinner was the traditional New England twin lobsters (small ones), steamers, clam chowder, baked beans, corn on the cob, and boiled red potatoes. Most left with doggy bags with the second lobster.

Try grilling the lamp chops too. I love lamb grilled over coals.

We made the low-country boil for about 25 teachers last night. It was so crazy, I forgot to take pictures

We had eight pounds of shrimp, four pounds of mixed seafood, four pounds of mussels, about eight pounds of andouille and bratwurst, eight pounds of red potatoes, 20 ears of corn, five Vidalia onions, several whole peeled garlic cloves, and two quartered lemons with Zatarain's boil seasoning in a few gallons of water in a propane cooker thing.

I also roasted a couple huge seasoned chicken breasts and two of the brats for the two people who are allergic to seafood, and made a separate pot of veggies with a couple Tofurky kielbasa sausages for one person who is vegetarian. Plus 30 baked garlic bread sticks. Store-bought cheesecake with mixed berries for dessert.

We had lots of help, but I fell right into bed and slept very well. Check ☑

That is on our end of the month list. I will pick up some fresh clams and a can or two of whole baby clams. I already have two bottles of clam juice.

My sister and I used to go to the lobster fest every year when they put the boats in the water at the yacht club. I used to collect the lobster shells for the broth. Bring home about ten shells or more. Used it in clam chowder. Now I just make it with shrimp shells and the couple of lobsters I boil about two or three times a year. A lot of folks do not pick out the meat from the body. (Me included) Those parts make for a great broth.
