- WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Lamb, Mustard, Potatoes? Oh, Yeah!
We went for a rack of lamb, salad and red potatoes.
For the lamb, I created a rub using cinnamon, cumin, brown sugar, salt and olive oil. I let this sit for about a half hour.
I grilled the lamb rack on medium heat for about 10 minutes total, flipping twice because the first flip came too early. I'm still working my skills on the grill -- even after years of practice.
Then, I prepped the salad -- mozzarella balls, peppers, olive oil, tomatoes...similar to the same thing I tend to do with salads.
For the red potatoes, I boiled them until they were soft, but still held their shape.
I them let them cool before mixing them d mustard with the mustard seeds, fresh dill, salt and papper and some olive oil.
Sorry -- I never measure so I don't know how much of what went in.
When the potatoes were slightly cool and bit, I tossed them in with mustard dill mixture.
I then tossed the salad, and there you have it! A nice, round, easy to make meal. Took less than one hour to put together.
