Lobster and Grilled Vegetable Salad

I try not to post the same thing more than once. But in the case of lobster, I have to do it. I don't know if everyone does this or if it's just me, but I can't think of any time I've ever eaten lobster and haven't taken a photo of either the lobster on it's own or me gleefully holding the lobster. There's something so special about it. I just love it. Which is probably why my husband and I decided that for every year we are married, we will have that many lobster on our anniversary. Tomorrow is our 4 year anniversary. We were celebrating this evening and enjoyed 4, very large lobster. My husband grilled some red pepper, onion, garlic and potatoes on the barbecue and tossed them with some baby spinach, basil and oil – a great complement to the lobster and so good.

We even started off with a bit of leftover gazpacho.

And enjoyed this delicious wine brought over last week by my friend Dino. Carefully chosen in the most recent batch of vintages at the LCBO.

Everything was amazing. But I think going forward, we're going to have to push our celebrating by a couple of weeks so we can hit lobster season. The longer we're married, the more expensive this is going to get!
