Grilled Rosemary Lamb Chops | Brown Rice | A Medley of Steamed Vegetables with Shallot Oil
I came across this quote a few days ago and found myself thinking about it quite a bit today. It sums up both our day, as well as our dinner this Sunday…
Nothing fancy…the day was filled with barn, horses & baseball. The girls needed to ride, there was plenty of packing to do at the barn in anticipation of the upcoming show this weekend and Max had an afternoon baseball game. We all made it home around 4:00pm. I chopped the vegetables and set the lamb chops in a marinade before leaving this morning. It was so nice to come home to a staged dinner, waiting only for a hot grill and some boiling water. With so little to do, Michael and I sat on the deck and watched the sailboats coming in for the day, enjoying the last few hours of the weekend. The weather was spectacular and we were all together…so wonderful.
The dinner itself was a celebration of foods in their simplest, most natural state. How such an uncomplicated meal can yield such amazing flavors is a testament to the perfection of whole foods. It was such a pleasure using my new steamer and cooking this way couldn’t be any easier…why haven’t I tried this inexpensive piece of kitchen equipment before?
