Long Lazy Lobster Nite

I love the summer. To me, nothing could be better than long balmy nights, meals on the deck, and just good ol' sunshine. I wish the season would last forever. Unfortunately, here in Jersey it doesn't, so we embrace it while we can. One way to do that is summer entertaining!

{I like to keep appetizers bright, colorful, and almost guilt free.}

{I'm sure Matt and Lisa would agree that you can't argue with an entree of simple Lobster tails swimming in butta.}

{For a side dish - Michael turned his raw handcut potatoes....}

{...into these delicious french fries!}

I love You BUCU

You know what Mike and I discovered recently? The new spot to visit for an awesome burger is Bucu Burger in Paramus. Bucu opened in January and is a burger and cupcake bar (their name merges he first two letters of “burger” and “cupcake” - BUCU, get it?). Super cute concept! And while I can't vouch for the cupcakes because I didn't try one, I CAN say the burgers are terrific. Beefy, tasty, thin patties of goodness. I think it might have something to do with the fact that burgers at Bucu are made with a coarse-chopped blend of beef from North Bergen-based Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors (the guy behind Shake Shack's blend).

{Bucu's burger. Really really tasty.}

{Hand cut Chili & Cheese fries...need I say more?}

{I couldn't resist trying their hot dog. Good, but the burger wins hands down.}

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend. Stay cool ;-)

I've been on somewhat of an extended blogging break but hope to return after a long, restful weekend!
