Congratulations to Sandra, from East Providence, RI, the latest winner of the B&M Facebook Fan of the Month Beach Blanket. And just so she doesn’t feel left out, we will also be sending a Fresh Lobster T-Shirt to Karen, from Burlington,Ma., this months runner-up.
Names are randomly selected from among our Facebook Friends. Feel free to Like us on Facebook.
As you may be aware, from perusing our web site, we provide catering for many types of fun outdoor events. Something you may not know, however, is that we also cater regularly for corporate and public institutions around New England. For example, we now manage daily lunch programs for Charter Schools and Head Start programs in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. We are also an approved vendor for the state of Massachusetts, which simplifies the hiring and invoicing process for the various departments throughout the state.
In the last month alone, we’ve catered breakfasts and barbecues for groups at UMass Boston, several dinners for the Rhode Island National Guard, on-site meals for construction companies, tailgates and student events at Brown, Yale, P C, Holy Cross & URI, and thousands and thousands of cups of cocoa for kids on the Polar Express.
So……if there is something you need catered for your school or business, or a customer you’d like us to deliver a meal to for you, just say the word. We’re always more than happy to help out.
Brian & Mickey

Join us, Santa and Mrs. Claus to relive the adventure of Chris Van Allsburg’s classic, The Polar Express, on a rollicking 90 minute holiday excursion through the Blacktone River Valley. It’s a thrill for children of any age, with chefs serving hot cocoa and cookies, a uniformed conductor and engineer, holiday sing-a-longs and gifts for all of the kids. They’ll feel as though the’ve stepped into the pages a strory book.
This journey takes place on a variety of dates between now and December 18th. For more info., go to http://www.blackstonevalleypolarexpress.com
With the cooler weather moving in, we wanted to share a belly-filling, heart warming recipe for Pasta e Fagioli, that we borrowed from our friend Trish at the FriendsFoodFamily blog.http://bit.ly/e5ZtM1 . It really hit the spot. We thought it was so good, that we prepared and served it to the children in the Head Start Programs we work with, and they agreed.
Join us this Sunday, October 23rd, at historic Linden Place for a Taste of Bristol. This is your chance to view a beautiful Bristol Landmark, while enjoying the varied fare of area caterers, breweries and restaurants.

Our friend Victoria A. was kind enough to take The Fresh Lobster traveling this summer. Go to http://www.facebook.com/BandM.Catering and win a Fresh Lobster Tee Shirt by being the first to identify where he is and what the monument in the background is called. Good Luck!
Summer is finally here and we would like to share a tip that you may find useful while grilling in the backyard.
Often, when preparing Babyback Ribs and Bone-in Chicken on the grill, it is difficult to keep the flame low enough, so that the meats cook slowly, evenly and most importantly, thoroughly. In fact, what people often find is a slab of meat that is a blackened on the outside, raw on the inside and a bunch of hungry kids who just want to eat.
To eliminate this problem, try arranging your Ribs (Beef or Pork) or Chicken in a roasting pan. Season the with whatever suits you; salt & pepper, garlic or perhaps Montreal seasoning. Cover the bottom of pan with water, tightly foil the pan and bake in your oven for 2 1/2 hours at 275 degrees. This will give you beautiful, ready to grill items.
Since the meats are already cooked, when it comes time to get the meal on the table, all you have to do is paint with BBQ Sauce, Thai Peanut Sauce, Ah-So sauce or anything you like, and pop them on the grill for a little charring.
A nice way to save work all summer long, or in to the winter for that matter, is to bake enough for several meals, then wrap and freeze for use at a later date.
It’s true. June 15th is National Lobster Day, and our little fella took it upon himself to visit Time Square for the big celebration. He said New Yorkers are surprisingly friendly. Told me he can’t count how many people have told him; “they’d love to have him over to their place………for dinner.”
