Wolf in sheep's clothing


I love surprises.  it doesn't even matter if it's a tiny surprise, like finding a couple of bucks in a jacket pocket (do you guys misplace your money too? I do...more than I would like to admit.  today, my surprise was that I got off work about an hour and a half early (thanks Martha) which is why I actually have some extra time for a mid-week post. see, it's the little things...
Ok, we feasted on more lamby treats on sunday.  Since it was just wifeshow and I for easter, we had some lambchops (so this is why lamb is so dang expensive.) with smashed tates and sauteed broccoli.  I wanted to grill the lamb, but the weather was not cooperating so I used my old standby saute method and de-glazed the pan with vermouth and whisked in some cream at the end, made for a tasty sauce.  The other dish was spatch-cocked and grilled cornish hens with baked potato and roasted brussels.  Tasty, but I made too much.  But, if you've been following this blog for a while, you'll know that the leftover meat will definitely get turned into something else, probably tostadas (one of the captain's favs).
Momma Dish is visiting this weekend so I hope to make some tasties.  Will be sure to take pics, worry not my minions.
DISH recommends:
Global 6 in. meat clever.  Used this to hack up the hen (cut it in two down the backside, not cough it up, should be more specific:)  super sharp and heavy, but "good heavy" not "kirstie alley heavy."  you might be able to find it for less cash somewhere else, but this was the first site I tried.  peace.
ps.  I know I've been lazy about recipes, but I promise I'll post one the next time. Until then...
