Ebola Is Home For the Weekend, So Special Requests Rule

…at casa de major dad. Friday night was Steak Night (as Kcruella and JeffS can attest), as it ever was when sweet child skulked blessed us regularly with his presence. Last night was his favorite marinated lamb loin chops, in sufficient quantity for two normal humans and one raptor.

Everyone was thrilled to have the boy home, obviously.

(The damn lima beans are ALLLLL major dad and Ebola. BLECH. I need another slurp just looking at them)

Roast chicken dinner tonight, then we fight all those whackjob Cajuns heading back to Louisiana on I-10 tomorrow to get him to Keesler. One “What FREAKING OUTSTANDING Parents You ARE!” certificate is in the mail somewhere, I’m sure of it.

Or next time, he gets pork roll.

    If you don’t get that certificate, feed him MREs the next time he stops by. You earned it.

    I should say it’s classified but; Tamari soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, EV olive oil, zest from one lemon, juice from two lemons, two cloves of garlic chopped fine, fresh ground pepper, two sprigs of rosemary about six inches long, strip the needles off the sprigs and chop. I’ll let you play with the amount of soy sauce, oil and vinegar but it was about two parts soy to one part vinegar and probably an equal amount of oil to soy. It’s the cheap balsamic too, not the real good stuff. Mix it all together and let it sit for about an hour. Pour over the chops, I use a freezer bag to hold them, and marinate for about three hours turning every thirty minutes or so. There you have it. I grilled them to medium rare. People who hate lamb will like this.

    Schmaybe he can scare some more lamb up when YOU get here next week, Donna, since he’s cooking Sunday night {8^P! (And we’ve been Knight’s Valley fans since the early 90’s. It’s addictive stuff…)
