Sprout made garlic lamb ribs (I'd never had lamb before, wow was it good), and sauteed peppers and onions. I made a rice dish that uses mixed whole grain and wild rices, sausage, rutabega, celery, onions and spices as a side dish (I have no idea what to call the thing so you get an ingredient list). We also found a bread at the import market called markouk. It was really good. It tasted somewhere between a flour tortilla, biscuit, and pizza crust. It looked like a giant, really thin tortilla but was more flexible and chewier. So I found two new favorites last night! :D

Spelunked some Hen of the Woods mushroom soup and garnished it with freshly expired scallions. It was quite good.
Thanks DL and your meal sounds lovely

Lamb was always too expensive where I lived before. Never had it as a kid and couldn't afford it once I was on my own. And it wasn't even in the stores most of the time.

I've been meaning to try it since we moved down here and found some import stores that sell it for cheaper. Just hadn't gotten to it yet. Now I have and it's been added to the meal rotaion.

Glad you got to try it! I was lucky enough to live in Botswana for a few years. Meat is very cheap there and when we were broke we just ate goat instead of lamb. Tastes very similar.
The cheapest meat in Botswana was beef tenderloin, the locals don't like any meat without bones
