Lamb loin chops; panzanella with eggplant; exploding beer bottle – 23 September 2017

OK, so this set out to be a great dinner and it was, and then the beer (actually, cider) bottle explosion definitely made it a memorable evening. I wanted to make the eggplant panzanella from Weber’s Big Book of Grilling … Continue reading

Lamb kebabs rubbed with spices; broccolini; reheated coconut rice – 18 May 2017

Well, this was pretty cool. Not perfect, but good. We had this coconut rice left over, and I decided it might go well with some middle-eastern-spiced lamb. So I looked up recipes for lamb with cinnamon in them, which led … Continue reading

Scotch Broth; semonlina-with-bay patties; chard stems – 16 May 2017

I used my lamb broth from last week’s leftover bits to make Scotch Broth. I defrosted some bits of lamb from 2012(!!) that were marked as being small chunks – they were too small for a good kebab, indeed, but … Continue reading

Leftovers tonight. I cooked up the one cup of cranberry beans resulting from D’s shelling adventures a day or two ago, using the Bertolli recipe. While I took a shower, he got all the rest of the lamb off the … Continue reading

Lamb Merlot; semolina with bay; asparagus with aioli – 8 May 2017

We had this odd non-cut of a lamb leg in the freezer, left over from some previous lamb dinner (with R&E) when the requested cut was made in the wrong place. Instead of getting a shortened bone-in leg of lamb … Continue reading

A major birthday for D, so we took R&E and went to Chez Panisse for dinner, having remembered a month in advance to call in for reservations. Next time should get first seating, though, as dinner lasts quite a long … Continue reading

Grilled lamb with “Indian spices”; cumin-spiced kabocha squash; naan – 3 November 2016

I discovered that my remaining half of a large kabocha squash was still doing fine in the fridge, so thought about ways to use it. I came up with one, then decided perhaps it needed lamb to go with, then … Continue reading

Shrimp, watercress, and lemon over gemelli; some version of bok choi – 28 October 2016

Since I cluelessly bought the wrong amount of shrimp yesterday, we had a bunch (in fact, about 12 oz) left, and decided we really needed to cook them today. I originally thought I’d just make a pasta based on last … Continue reading

Lemon kefta tagine; couscous – 19 December 2015

I’d been wanting to make this tagine again for awhile – in fact, wanted to make it all last winter but couldn’t find the cookbook (which appeared back on the shelf… just missing it? It’s thin…). So when R&E donated … Continue reading

Lamb chops with “Lamb Merlot” marinade; kale with bacon; cannellini beans – 25 December 2013

Normally we would have a big feast that requires multiple cooks on Christmas, but with the guys engaged in a construction project-with-deadline, I was pretty much it till dark, so D and I settled on a fairly simple meal to … Continue reading

Scotch Broth; broccoli – 23 October 2013

We had made lamb broth/stock by boiling the bones from some lamb chops we had eaten, along with one carrot. I took it out today to make this soup, which, in its Campbell’s incarnation, was a favorite of my childhood. … Continue reading

Grilled lamb kebobs; fresh shell beans; beet greens – 5 July 2013

I was going to make a polenta and shell beans, but it got too late for grilled polenta (which has to chill for 4 hours after an hour of prep and before grilling), so I moved that dinner to Sunday, and … Continue reading

Grilled lamb kebabs; cannellini bean salad; sugar snap peas with mint – 15 June 2013

Weber’s Art of the Grill has fabulous side dishes. I wanted to make this cannellini bean salad, though what it accompanies in the book – a marinated rack of lamb – is normally too pricey and too much work (i.e. … Continue reading
