I hear ya, cd - or rather, I hear Otis singing in my mind's ear. A song from my youth. *sigh*

I ended up making salads. The sides for the fish were fresh corn off the cob and asparagus.

I grilled a few chicken thighs this afternoon and had one for dinner with a green salad. Watermelon on the side. Leftover chicken for tomorrow.

Princess, sounds like a fun reunion get-together with your mom and acquaintances, and the buffet sounds lovely.

So, the bargain lamb chops were excellent. I seasoned them with k-salt, black pepper, granulated garlic and herbes de Provence. I cooked them hot an fast on the Webber Genesis to a nice medium rare. Wow, so simple, and so good. I never got around to cooking any sides. I ate them caveman style, with my fingers. I am very happy right now.

We had friends over and everyone has things we can and can not eat so it was a little bit of everything:
- paella rice with scampi (Ms. M's recipe for the Instant Pot - love it!)
- Greek flavoured spatchcock chicken on the grill
- grilled steak
- bacon wrapped asparagus on grill
- salad

Dessert was pastry creme filled pate a choux with ganache and strawberries.

Casey, that's the exact combo of seasonings I use for our luscious lamb chops. Perfect isn't it? We like them with Colman's Mint Sauce from the UK..nothing else will do.

Glad you enjoyed them!

I was shooting from the hip tonight. Those were the herbs and seasonings that felt right to me. They actually were pretty much perfect. From now on, I will do them the same way. Like they say, it's better to be lucky than good.

We had rib eye steaks on the grill yesterday with baked potato & salad. Probably the same for today seeing as we have another package in the fridge.
