Lamb cutlets with grilled goat's cheese.... by Jessica


We like lamb grilled.


I'm happy to have discovered this because I was starting to get nervous. I just got my second meat box and included were two lamb shanks and up til now the lamb we've eaten from the club has been so....what's the word?...lamb-y. I've eaten lamb before and liked it so I couldn't figure out why we weren't enjoying it as much until tonight when we had it BBQ'd and it was oh-so-tasty.

The recipe did not call for it to be wrapped in prosciutto, but I had a package that was needing to be used and I knew it would do nothing but good by wrapping itself around some little lamb pieces. Use fresh oregano, it really makes a difference. And the goat cheese just gets so warm and soft and gooey. I'm glad the warm weather is right around the corner and I can use my BBQ more. Several years ago, I tried to see how many nights I could make dinner on the BBQ and never turn on the stove. I can't remember exactly but I think it was around 45 days of no stove usage. I was even making rice on it, I kid you not. There was no reason for the challenge, not to reduce my gas bill or to reduce my carbon footprint. It was just plain dorkiness.

Anything wrapped in a bacon like substance is good!

I forgot what an integral part of your personality challenging yourself was. It's like the nice version of a person who is ultra competitive with other people.
