2022 New Year Dinner At The Souto House. We had our New Year's Day traditional Dinner yesterday, and once again it was worth the wait. We started this tradition over 30 years ago, and hope to continue it for many more years. However, we did have to change things up a little bit this year, because of COVID supply interference.
In the past the highlight of our dinner has been a jumbo lobster per couple, which weigh between 7 to 8 pounds (see picture to the right). Some may think the meat from these HUGE lobsters would be tougher than the smaller lobsters, but it is just as tender. However, this year jumbo lobsters were not available, so we had to scale down to the next biggest size available, which was a 3 pound lobster per person (see picture to the left).
Along with the lobsters, which we bake stuff the tails, and boil the claws, we also had, twice baked bake potatoes, and a bottle of white wine. By the way the stuffing has crab meat, and shrimp in it. This is the type of meal you walk away from the table needing to unbuckle your belt, and there is enough left over for lobster roles the next day. Below is a picture of the finished meal.
