I’ve somehow missed the last few CEiMB recipes! It’s crazy how it sneaks up on you and all of a sudden in Thursday and no Ellie meal has occurred.
I really made sure not to miss this one! I love lamb, but it’s one of those things I rarely eat, rarely buy, and rarely order at restaurants…not exactly sure why. Maybe somewhere in my head I associate it as one of those things I shouldn’t eat often?? Who knows…all I know is that I saw the recipe for this week was Marinated Lamb Chops and I was all over that.
These were made with lamb loin chops which were smaller and a little more expensive than the “regular” lamb chops (shoulder chops I think?) but they were extremely flavorful and tender.
The marinade couldn't be easier:
- lemon juice
- lemon zest
- salt & pepper
The chops marinate for 1 hour then on the grill the went, along with some veggies…yeah we’re on a grilled veggie kick lately :)
SO flavorful!! Lamb has such a distinct flavor; it’s delicious.
For dessert that night I dug into our lately supply of buy 1 get 1 free Eddy’s! Perfect timing because I could NOT decide what I wanted :)
I had a little Neapolitan ice cream (something so classic about that vanilla-chocolate-strawberry in one container)
…and Sherbet!!!! Wow I haven’t had sherbet in, well, Forever!
So refreshing :)
Tonight’s workout was my weekly Treadmill Interval Training at the gym. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this training, but it’s a Small Group Training session I signed up for. It’s 8weeks, 1 night a week. There are 5 of us and 1 trainer. We basically do a mini-boot camp style workout on the treadmill.
It’s an awesome workout and I sweat a lot! Tonight felt harder than usual for some reason and I was craving a smoothie like crazy when I got home.
- about 3/4 cup skim milk
- handful of baby spinach
- small piece of frozen banana
- 5 frozen strawberries
- 1/2 scoop Amazing Grass
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I’m using Spirulina Whey right now)
This sucker was THICK! I need a wider straw haha.
Well it is way past my bed time… fun blogger event tomorrow night, yay :) Love having something to look forward to after work!
