I was contemplating why rack of lamb is such a favorite of mine. I've come to one conclusion. Because I am a cleaner. Give me a rib, a chicken wing, a crab, or a lobster and I will clean every bit of goodness off of it. If we have or ever will dine together, you know what I'm talking about. Chris describes my bones or shells as looking like they've come through a power washer. No tidbit left to be desired. I realize this does not paint a very pretty picture of my dining etiquette, but I cannot tell a lie. I love to get every morsel, as many times, it is those last morsels that are the best.
Tonight's lamb was marinated in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, red wine, honey, shallots, lemon, parsley, rosemary and salt and pepper. Only a slight variation from that which I've done before, but just enough to give it a little twist. Grill on the bbq over medium heat. I continue to try to get my kids to like lamb and now I'm wondering if that's such a good idea. After all... all one needs to do is do the math. More for them, less for me!
