Lamb, Meat of Champions

December 20, 2012 at 9:50 am Leave a comment

I had a strong craving for lamb the other day. Unfortunately, I’m the only one in the house who eats lamb. I like leg of lamb and chops on the grill. My mom can make a leg of lamb to die for; her mustard and herb rub compliments the fragrant meat perfectly.

Knowing my family was not going to indulge with me, I opted for chops. Simple sea salt and ground pepper on the charcoal grill would have been fine for me. But, I ventured on the internet to see if I could find a recipe that might entice at least my husband into joining me in the treat. I found two recipes to try; one was a Gorgonzola Crusted Lamb Chop and the other was a Bobby Flay Grilled Lamb Chops with Mustard BBQ Sauce. Both were delicious to me. Hubby tolerated it, and the kids were furious I made them each eat one.

I guess the bottom line is lamb, like other game meats, are an acquired taste. Looking back I probably should have included it in their regular diets when they were growing up. Take note new and yet to be parents, especially if you have a broad palate.

I'm Natalie and so glad you stopped in.

January 29, 2008 changed my life forever. Before that day I weighed a whopping 292 lbs. Today I'm at a very slender 145 lbs. (in a size 6 jean!). The gastric bypass I received that day gave me a new lease on life. With that new lease came a commitment to a new eating lifestyle; moderation and plenty of protein. One of the neat side effects is my very low tolerance for sugar.

I've always loved food and knew I would be challenged to find satisfaction without the sugar. Over the past three years I've created some masterpieces of both savory and sugar free foods. Guests to our home are always asking for my recipes.

On this blog I plan to share many recipes I've found and in many cases modified. Some are high-jacked others are creations or family recipes. I will do my level best to give credit to the originators of any high-jacked recipes.

All recipes are sugar free. None are fat free! I have a saying, "If you can't have sugar, bring on the butter!"

I will also share awesome restaurant discoveries as I find them. Many times I attempt to recreate them at home.

So feel free to high-jack recipes from my blog. Recreate the magic in your home, and enjoy the food with family and friends. Cherish the moments with them because tomorrow is not promised.
