An Unforgetable Dinner

I celebrated my birthday earlier this month. One of the surprises I got for my birthday is a special dinner lovingly prepared by my husband(I'm not the only cook in the family). Our son visited his grandparents that weekend(it's great because my parents live close by!)

He surprised me with lobster thermidor -- one of my favorite preparations for lobster. Lobster Thermidor is a labor of love. It took him hours to make this dish. I'm not exactly sure how he made it -- I was not allowed to help :-) Six pounds of live lobsters were sacrificed in a rich creamy cheesy sauce. They met their demise in the most glorious way.
He also baked a delicious coconut cake from scratch. Heaven.
