Happy St. Patrick's Day

I am not really sure what St. Patrick’s Day is all about but I’m all for a little holiday spirit!

My idea of holiday spirit: Having Cody & Lexi wear green

Not my idea of holiday spirit: Green Beer

Eat better Monday’s

I am here to help you realize that eating well doesn’t have to be boring or time consuming. Check out my yummy dinner.

Grilled Lamb Chops with Asparagus and Arugula Salad

This was made in 15 minutes which includes prep time. The key is good ingredients prepared simply.

3 organic lamb chops
½ of a bunch of asparagus
1 cup organic arugula
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
Salt & pepper
Mint jelly

*serves 1

Spray non-stick cooking spray on grill pan and heat to medium-high. Sprinkle salt, pepper and rosemary on both sides of the lamb chops. For medium rare, grilll for 4 minutes on each side. While that’s cooking, steam asparagus for about 6 minutes (should still have a crunch when done), drain and rinse under cold water. Dress the salad with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt, pepper and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and toss well.

Serve the lamb chops with mint Jelly on the side. I found this excellent garlic & mint one at Whole Foods Market.
