Foodie Friday: Dr. G's Feast

While Bandwith and I stood in the Publix bakery, arguing if the cake was large enough for a whole "Happy Birthday, Dr. Gollum" to be written on it, the lady at the bakery wrote Dr. Goloum.
Close enough.
Bandwith cooked T-bones, grilled corn, and lobster. A good time was had by all.
Hope your July 4th is fun filled and, above all, foodie.

  2. Hahahaha! At least it didn't say "Bon Voyage Shirl and Benny."

    Ummm... lobster. I am way overdue for a lobsterfest. Best tasting scavengers under the sun. Or sea.

    Happy 4th!

  4. Great Birthday feast.. Happy Birthday Dr G! I always use Publix bakery for cakes. They made a hamburger one for me for my husbands birthday one year. Nobody wanted to cut it.. it was so beautiful. I always stop in for Foodie Friday to see what you and everyone else has whipped up each week.. however this is my first time participating. I hope everyone enjoys my southern supper.
    Happy Safe 4th to Everyone.
    Hugs,
    Debbie

  14. Happy Birthday to Dr. Gollum! I love the flowers on the chocolate cake, Yes, there was enough room! I just love round cakes for Birthdays. I even love more is the lobster! I guess we will not have it anymore as we have what I call these days our mini lobsters, (crawfish) just to get to hubby he knows I love lobster! For he says we have plenty of crawfish in the pond! ( he is raising crawfish in a pond, experiment with Mississippi State University) Sounds like you had a great time, Have a Happy 4th!

  19. Happy Birthday Dr. Goloum! What are you going to do? No "white out" for icing! I'll bet it will taste just great. What time's dinner? If I leave right now, I think I can be there in time!

  20. Happy Birthday, Dr. Gollum! That lobster looks so scrumptious.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  21. The two favorite foods at The Hut are lobster and cake, especially those from Publix. My birthday will be here in about three weeks and my cousin, whose birthday is also this month and we are the same age, decided months ago that we would get their Chocolate Ganache Supreme and eat the whole thing by ourselves — even if it takes all day!

    Happy Birthday Dr. G and Happy 4th to All!

  40. You could submit Dr. Gollum's cake to Cake Wrecks....LOL! Actually, his dinner sounds devine. I could go for some lobster right about now. Especially prepared by a professional chef - how good can it get! ~ Robyn
