Elizabeth's mom cooked the lobsters and they were excellent.
The sliders were good. Nothing special, but perfect for eating in front of the TV while watching football.
The second pizza was barbecue chicken: a grilled chicken breast from Taylor's, some barbecue sauce, mozzarella, red onion and cilantro. This was my favorite pizza of the evening.
The third pizza was caramelized onions, goat cheese and chives. Originally I had planned to make balsamic onions, but my parents didn't have enough balsamic vinegar. One thing they do have plenty of, however, is wine. So I added some pinot noir to the pan and reduced it until the onions were covered in red wine. This was good, although I wish I'd added some jalapenos to it to give a little kick.
The fourth pizza was a cheese pie: mozzarella and Drunken Goat. Very good but nothing too special about it.
The final pizza was my usual roasted garlic and basil. This was the first pizza to disappear. My dad had several slices of it. While 6 of us were sitting at the dining room table, my dad stayed on the couch and watched the UCLA football game. I could tell my mom was getting annoyed but I understood his motivation: that was UCLA's fourth and most likely final victory of the season, another losing season almost guaranteed.
put Zankou sauce on a donut.
I got the house special beef and Elizabeth got the chicken with snow peas. Both were great and there was plenty left to take home, just like always.
