Now, see THIS type of description is what provokes that drooling, honey.

oh, do not be scared. Karen can always shoot him.

The ribs sound outrageous. I LOVE lamb. Enjoy!

Dinner tonight (coincidentally)

Lamb patties

Sauteed Chard

Roasted baby potatoes

note to self :: put ground lamb on shopping list

Lamb ( and rice) saved me when I could eat nothing ( and I do mean NOTHING) else and is still my most favorite safe meal .

I could blow him up?

Holycraponacracker.....Your arsenal is getting bigger and bigger, K---you scary dame.

My baby cousin who was about 1 1/2 at the time spit out bacon and wouldn't try it again. I promptly took the opportunity to point out to my husband that it is his blood relation, not mine. Seriously, who spits bacon out?

Now, that's just a shame. Poor kid. :(Makes me cry to think he'll never know the joy of Ba-con!

My mother won't eat cheese for the same reason. Can you imagine 85 years without cheese???? I tell her "you can't be my real mom!".

I recall the days when you had to eat such a limited diet, Chill. I am so glad you are feeling so much better!

Lamb is my all-time favorite meat--I could eat it every day. Lamb shish kebab and rice pilaf...my Armenian Gramma's specialty and I loved

when I went to stay with her. Lamejun--Armenian pizza made with ground lamb and spices. Also, ground lamb rolled into meatballs with broth--crazy good with pita bread (well, those days of soft pita bread are gone, sigh ) . She had an old fashioned hand cranked meat grinder and I thought it was so cool when she made "meat strings" come out of that thing. :D

OK - some C and S involved tonight.

Leftover lamb ribs with a wondrous smoky rub and sweet and spicy barbecue sauce

Risotto Milanese

White-Wine Braised Celery

Guess what? I just made a roasted red pepper, escabeche, roasted tomato, et. al. chunky sauce with no specific plans in mind - it will be good on anything.

:lol: I know, my head is hung low in shame. I am failing miserably at S and C today. I am not feeling stellar at all (novocaine kicks me arse and causes heart palps, etc.) ah well....we will have sherried portabellas on that beef...does that count?

Ask them to give you the anesthetic that does not contain epinephrine -- I always do, because I get bad palps from it too.

Yes as to the sauce, but it would have to be "Sauteed baby portabella mushrooms in a sherry reduction sauce" for an A grade :D

you're right...I blew that one. :lol:

I did ask for that no epineprine anesthetic two visits ago (because you and several others gave me that great advice--thank you! :wub: ) but he must have forgotten this time and he shot me up --3 needles---and well, I knew within minutes he had messed up....this was a few days ago and the heart palps lasted 2 days!!-- and now, well, let's just say it messes with my entire system and I have a wonky tum, etc.

I'll try to do better tomorrow. man, I hate getting a C-..... :unsure:

A C- while feeling poorly is far better than an A+ while feeling fine :)

And I add my avoid the epi chant.

Long couple days here -

Dinner was chicken tenders - tacos for men -- broccoli, spag squash and carrot sauce added to mine.

Thanks, Mom.

And next time, I'll make sure he gives me the right stuff.

Hope all's well in sunny Cal..... and you're still very vertical.

Tonight is the hub's birthday dinner, but he has yet to tell me what he wants.

He is usually very cheery, but Grumblepants is not taking this birthday with grace for some reason.

I told him, "Oh hush up. It's beats the alternative."

I want to give him diver scallops and risotto (with an appropriate C and S, of course) and flourless chocolate cake with ganache.

But if'n he doesn't get more "perky", he's getting a ham and cheese sammy.

All well and vertical here after a minor hiccup this week - and it is pouring rain - I cant wait to get outside when the sun arrives - my lungs LOVE exercising in the rain - I know I'm a freak of nature. Or for nature and weather more precisely.

Happy Birthday to Mr. IrishHeart - just keep smiling - it will make him wonder what you are thinking about - I vote for the scallops - yum :)

Sis coming over tonight - she eats very few vegies so time to get creative ;)

Last night we had indoor grilled chicken on salad with a spicy peanut dressing I made.

Tonight - pasta with a "sauce" of popped tomatoes & arugula/spinach

yum-- spicy peanut dressing! hmm....that could work with scallops, too....thanks for the idea. K.

I love arugula...and... . I like saying "arugula" . It's fun.

I could take the scallops and risotto off your hands, and I am quite perky today :)

Hope you and hubs have a lovely birthday dinner x

I don't generally do perky, but for scallops and risotto there is little I wouldn't do. :ph34r:

Yes, do enjoy your dinner tonight and happy birthday to the grump. :P

Me? I seem to have this problem where I stay up way too late and when my alarm goes off I'm swear that tonight I'll go to bed at a reasonable time. Then before I know what happened the clock says 2 am again. How does this keep happening?!? I may just have a nap for supper.

Speaking of risotto and perkiness, tonight we are having encore risotto from last night (porcini and red wine and fresh thyme risotto) with steamed broccoli. Sometimes a big ol' bowl of risotto is enough!

Irish, how are you feeling today??

I am as perky as ever, thanks! I rebounded and my legs are getting better.

Mr. IH is cheery too. His momentary grumpiness has passed. No poopyheads tolerated (i was already previously married to one of those :lol: ).

The wonderful family who owns the gluten-free cafe brought him a carrot cake and sang to him after lunch today :)

How sweet, right?!

Risotto --encore or otherwise--is always yummy

And that's what he is getting with his filet (yes, he wanted that again)

No lobstah tails to be found. :( So, we make do.

Who cares right? I do not have to make dessert now, so I can have champagne, starting.......um, .....NOW....whoohoo..
