Roman Barbequed Lamb Chops

Roman Barbequed Lamb Chops
Stan has always been a terrific vacation planner and good-food-finder. 
Vacation memories are some of his favorite childhood memories
so he wanted to pass that on to our children.

Most of our vacations have been hiking, canoeing or road trips,
but we took a once-in-a-lifetime family trip to Europe.
There he found the Taverna Romana restaurant in Rome—another typical gem he discovered
in his time consuming efforts to unearth the yummiest food for the family.
Theses lamb chops are cut so thin they are almost lacy.  Perfect for getting crispy on the barbeque.

Lamb chops, cut 1/3- to ½-inch thick by butcher—cut so thin they’re almost lacy. It’s okay if they have holes.
Lemon juice, freshly squeezed

1.     Bring lamb chops to room temperature. 
2.     Preheat barbeque to high 15 minutes, or more, before grilling. It needs to be hotter than Hades.
3.     Salt and pepper chops on both sides.  Don’t be stingy. A squeeze of lemon juice would be nice.
4.  Grill the lamb chops on both sides, keeping them still moist inside, and crispy outside, but not jerky.

Easter Babies (Croatian Easter Bread Dolls)

  Easter Babies                                                     ******* Makes 12 Easter Babies These Easter Babies (Croatian Easter bread dolls a.k.a.   primorski uskrsne bebe )  are a new tradition in our family. The egg dying, dough mixing and braiding is so fun for children and grownups—it’s contagious. Traditionally, they are made with red-dyed eggs, but we use the colors we already have dyed. They make sweet gifts and they also look charming laying next to each Easter dinner plate.  This lady  uses naturally dyed eggs for her Easter babies. If you're already making  challa bread , use extra challa dough for these babies (simply make enough dough for 2 loaves, only bake one challa, and use the remaining dough for the Easter Babies).

Sprouts Foo Young

Sprouts Foo Young ******* For each pancake:   2 eggs Grapeseed oil or ghee 1 C sprouts (alfalfa, sunflower, mung bean) 1 small clove garlic, minced ¼ C chopped green onion tops 1 tsp freshly grated ginger (or pinch of ground ginger) ½ to 1 tsp Braggs amino sauce (like soy sauce) Optional:  add shrimp or fresh crab meat to step #1 Add a bit of oil in a small skillet.  Over medium heat sautee garlic, ginger and green onion tops.  Do not brown the garlic—that will make it bitter. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk eggs until light and fluffy.  Whisk in Braggs. When garlic is fragrant, add a bit more oil, then add sprouts, give them a stir or two (to mix with garlic, etc.), and pour egg over all.  Cook like an omelette, or flip like a pancake to brown on both sides.  

Pumpkin Pie-Coconut Cream Ice Cream

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Makes 1 quart I spy some dietary restrictions in my future. The doctor’s verdict will be in within a month, so I was hoping that some of the few remaining approved edibles (including coconut) could turn out something muy bueno. They did. This ice cream is excelente. The gingersnap cookies won’t be an option for the Paleo eater at the table, but everyone else will love them.  Modified from the nourishing gourmet
