Lamb Chops with Moroccan Rice & Carrots.

Sunday 4th August 2011

Lamb reminds me of my nan. Every time I cook it I think of her. Whatever I’m cooking, be it chops, a joint or mince the smell takes me right back to being 8 years old & lounging over my Dad, while he reads the Sunday papers, in my Nan’s kitchen. Mum & Nan would be busying themselves around us. There was an air of joviality rather than the tense atmosphere of later years.

Good times. 🙂

Nan’s had a racing car green roasting tin with white trim. It was oval & it had a pot-belly lid. It really did look like something pre world war II. It would be taken out of the oven & placed in the middle of the kitchen table where Nan would ceremonially unveil our Sunday lunch.

As she lifted the lid the sweet smell of lamb would fill the kitchen.

“That smells good Nan.” I would say stretching out my arm trying to pick off a stray piece of lamb.

“Getcha hands off, ya bleeder!” She’d say.

She had a way with words did Nan. 😉

About whatdidyouhavefordinnerlastnight

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.
