Great idea, honey.

Do you live with a man?  The only reason I ask this, is well, if you do, I understand.

They think they run the show right? “Head of the house – me tarzan, you jane – i provide, you gather – hell no we aren’t watching design star, where is American Ninja Warrior saved?”

I understand. Sometimes I like to play a game I call “Great idea, honey!”

Whit: Hey babe, any ideas for dinner this week?

Brian: Nah, whatever is good.

Whit: You never help me at this.  Do you want Lamb?

Brian: Do I want lamb? What kind of question is that, of course I want lamb!

Whit: okeeyy dokey.

Whit: What do you think?

Brian: I am so glad I thought of lamb, this is delicious!

Whit: I know, what a great idea, honey.

If you’re fortunate enough to meet me with 2 or more cocktails in me, you’ll be familiar with the following saying.

The man may be the head of the household, but the woman is the neck and she can turn him any which way she wants.

boom. served. lamb for dinner indeed. it’s all in the delivery, ladies.  Don’t believe me?  Give it a try…

Garlic Crusted Rack of Lamb

  • 1 head of garlic, cloves peeled
  • 1/4 cup rosemary leaves
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 racks of lamb, frenched
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

In a mini food processor, combine the garlic, rosemary and olive oil and process until the garlic is finely chopped.

Season the lamb racks with salt and pepper and rub the garlic-rosemary oil all over them.

Preheat the oven to 450°. Roast the lamb in the upper third of the oven for 15 minutes.

Turn the racks and roast for 10 minutes longer for medium-rare meat. Transfer the racks to a carving board, stand them upright and let rest for 10 minutes.  Make sure a meat thermometer reads 135 degrees.

Carve the racks in between the rib bones and transfer to plates.

So, what was it that you wanted to have for dinner again?
