Cooking for others is fun, but when you have to work in other people's spaces it is sometimes difficult. I forgot to bring my tongs and a chef's knife with me. I had to use a little serrated blade for my cutting and prepping, and a pair of salad tongs to work the grill. But all things considered, the rain and the lack of tools, everything turned out. Just remember to bring your favourite or must have tools if you are cooking at someone else's house.
This meal was amazing. I seriously could have finished that steak in one go, but I forced myself to save some for later. And the lobster tails, like I said, were kind of beefy tasting for a fish. I don't know if that is from the basting both the lobster and the beef tenderloin with the butter, but it was good. Good enough to try again. I fear that I may have overdone the lobster a little. You have to keep a close eye on that, the last thing you need is rubbery lobster. That is almost worse than rubber duck!
