Sunday night dinner

Samantha turned 8 yesterday.  I can’t believe it.  It has been a big weekend.  She had a soccer game yesterday, we took her out to dinner last night, her kid party was today and yesterday she acquired her big gift – a pet hamster, “Honey”.  Honey is very cute and seems to be settling in well.  With all of the chaos and confusion, I wanted an easy dinner tonight.  Lamb chops on the grill and my favorite roasted brussels sprouts fit the bill.  The lamb chops are marinating in Worcestershire sauce and we will serve them with:

Roasted brussels sprouts

  • 1 lb brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
  • 3 – 4 oz pancetta, chopped
  • 2 TB olive oil
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1 TB balsamic vinegar

Preheat oven to 425.  Toss sprouts with pancetta, olive oil and pepper in a ceramic baking dish.  Roast for 30 minutes, tossing once.  Remove from oven and toss with balsamic vinegar.  Serve.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
