Keeping Mashed Potatoes Warm

If you are just worried about keeping warm until serving (no traveling with them) you might want to try simply placing the pot with the mashed potatoes in in a larger pot (or roasting pan) on the stove and filling the larger vessel with a few inches of hot water and keep on a low simmer. The water / extra pan should keep them from scorching until you are ready to serve them. Seems to work well for me...

Christmas Eve Lobster x 30

I'm having approximately 30 people over for a Christmas Eve dinner. There's no way I'll be able to have all lobsters coming out of the pots at the same time...more likely two separate batches about 15-20 minutes apart, which leaves me wondering what to do with the first batch. Has anyone had any luck with keeping lobsters warm in a steam tray for half an hour or so? I'm concerned they will dry out or become rubbery / over-cooked. Any thoughts / suggestions? Thanks very much for any advice!
