'Twas the night before Friday
and all through the house
fragrant air was swirling
giving Longwind culinary clout

The charcoal was laid
in the Webber with care
In hopes that soon
ham and lamb would be seard

The hashbrowns were cooking
in cast iron on the stove
Asparagus was steaming
DW was holding her nose

Summer squash completed
this very tasty meal
that DW and I
would soon eat with zeal

The lamb was divine
and seasoned just right
with thyme, salt and pepper
and vacuum packed last night

The ham was so tender
and tasty when grilled
And all came fresh
from the vendors at the Farmer's market
and was cooked with great skill

The hashbrowns were finished
on the grill over coals
while the ham and the lamb
made such flavorful smoke.

The food was all plated
I could hardly wait to eat
the blessing was said
then, my teeth sank into that lamb meat.

Seriously, I seasoned the lamb steaks early this morning, before going to work, with thyme, salt, granulated garlic, and pepper, nothing fancy. I put them into a plastic zipper bag and stuck them back into the fridge. The asparagus was fresh from the garden, and the hashbrowns were cooked on one side only, then flipped, and finished on the covered grill while the meat cooked for 4 minutes per side. One thing not included in the poem was a freshly made Mornay Sauce to dress the asparagus with. Yeh, you can drool. It was really good. This meal will go into the new cookbook I'm writing. Here's pictures.

fork away, knife away, grab all a plate,
dinner is ready, and it's gonna be great!

Ended up with the hot dogs and potato salad. When I re-read the ingredients for the marinade I had found I decided I didn't like it. Still trying to find something other than my usual go-to of olive oil and red wine with a few other things mixed in. Not sure the kebobs will be tomorrow night's dinner at this rate!

I added 4 ounces(dry weight) of white beans to the 15 ounces of menudo, resulting in 4 portions with a sodium content per portion of 565mg (24% of RDA). Problem is, I ate all four portions and had to put off eating the salad.

So does leftover leg of lamb. I like slices of leftover leg of lamb warmed in a gravy made from pan scrapings; but my favorite is a barley soup made with the bone, chunks of lamb, leek, and white turnip.

my mom always reheated slices of whatever roast we ate the day before in it's gravy. there was no concern for the rare-to-well-done-ness.

and it was always great. maybe even better.
