There’s this problem with Denver, I inform every person who asks me “How life is since our move”.
It is constantly 65 and sunny, the mountains are a great backdrop to every day life, and in general people are happy and nice here. BUT I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY.
Because trying to find a grocery store that carries all the ingredients I need to buy is like siphoning water out of a camels hump. And there is NOTHING that irritates Whitney more than an ill equipped grocery store. Even whole foods is struggles here. I don’t get it. They’re all “up-and-coming” “local/organic” “trendy food” BUT WHERE IS THE ROSEMARY, BRAH?
Riddle me that. Because when I step into a grocery store that is more than half produce, I suppose I expect to find something as basic as rosemary. BUT NO. Tarragon out the ears, mustard greens for days, but no rosemary. It’s enough to make a girl reconsider her life choices.
Not really. But it got my gears grinding. I get that this sounds ridiculous coming from someone like me, who aught to be able to ‘alter’ a recipe pretty easily, but it’s the principle. I was dreaming of a succulent rosemary slathered lamb chop and damn it if I didn’t have to switch to sage!
The nerve, people. The. Nerve.
- garlic - 1 head, cloves peeled
- sage - 1/4 cup, finely chopped
- olive oil - 1/4 cup
- rack of lamb - 1, frenched
- salt and pepper - to taste
Don’t tell the grocery store this was as good as rosemary. They might think they’re off the hook or something…
