OK. Not sure you would like the winters up here, though.

Looks wonderful

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.

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt
