lamb/spam

Hello Iornchef. You claim the Spam capitol of the world as home base. Have you been to the Spam Museum? In Nebraska-or is it N. Dak? Thowe states do tend to blend together once you are east of the badlands. Yep, a large museum, devoted to all aspects of the history of Spam--and the history of the days when Spam was new on the block. Graysmoke

Sounds good, but how about doing a bernaise? That way you don't have two wine based sauces for both meats.

Thought you'd like this. Have been to the SPAM museum. Also lived in Hawaii, SPAM eating capitol of the universe. I dislike the stuff, but can probably name more ways of preparing SPAM than anyone else here besides certain Hawaiin correspondents! I'm throwing a 50s party for my husband's 60th anniversary, and SPAM will be featured! And yes, I did send SPAM museum post cards to all my friends in Hawaii! SPAM kabobs. Fried SPAM. SPAM saimin. SPAM with eggs for breakfast. Are you ready for this? SPAM sushi (anyone remember what this is called? It seems to me it had a special name but I can't bring it to mind). Oh my goodness. A bartender in Austin asked us if SPAM was seriously eaten that much in Hawaii, she thought it was a propaganda ploy fed to kids growing up there. Yes, they really did, at least in the late 80s, early 90s. SPAM was even on the menu at some of the most high priced, high class restaurants for breakfast and brunch. OUCH.

Iím wondering if anyone out there has some original ideas for sides to go with Lamb. So far I have developed 2 ideas myself:

1)Honey Glazed Squash with Asparagus
2)Jasmine Rice slightly flavored with mint leaves, with a Green Tea steeped with mint as well.

If anyone has any other ideas or suggestions for things to go with this kind of thing I would really appreciate hearing from you.

Welcome to DC.

Are you having both "mains" during her stay?
I think that the asparagus would go with the lamb but I'm not big on the rice idea. Lamb and potatoes seem like a much better match.
