RECIPE IDEA: Lamb Asparagus Supper
Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about this tasty Lamb Asparagus Supper Don and I shared recently. It was simple and amazing. Savory, succulent lamb chops. Crisp, fresh asparagus. Onions. Tomatoes. Rosemary. Salt and pepper.
Eating healthfully is such a simple way to savor your life.
Don and I love lamb, especially chops. As much as I’d like to eat about three of them at one sitting, I stick to one. I have found that they are surprisingly high in calories and fat. So I eat one and savor it. Pairing it with one of the best vegetables on the planet—asparagus—is a terrific way to fill up your belly and enjoy the meal.
Thankfully, we can get reasonably priced lamb chops sourced locally part of the year and from Australia other times of the year. When I see them on sale, I buy and freeze them. I was super happy I had some for this Lamb Asparagus Supper. Pair it with a Baked Potato or a Green Salad and call it a meal.
Do tell me what you think of the recipe when you make it! Comment below.
