Christmas Eve dinner was a smashing success!
While it did rain for a bit of the day, we decided to grill the lamb chops anyway and since the grill was on, I added some zucchini to the mix. All I needed was a baked potato and we had one spectacular meal.
We followed this up with bowls of rice pudding for dessert and went to bed at a reasonable hour. It was a perfectly relaxing night, good food and even better company!
I am really hoping that the old folklore is true, I made a garlic, rosemary and mustard rub for the lamb – according to legend, smelling rosemary on Christmas Eve will bring you happiness all year-long. I figured it was worth a try – even if it doesn’t work, it made the lamb taste amazing!
I am not sure what I am making for New Year’s Eve this year, but I think it will be tough to top the lamb. Happy Holidays!
