A great Father's Day for all of us!!!

Osso is the first dog that we have had that is not a water dog. He does seem to enjoy the floaty though!!!

Yesterday was Father's Day and we spent a nice lazy day at home. We hung around the pool all day just soaking up the sun and relaxing. Life doesn't get much better...until dinner time that is!!!
Grilled Lamb with grilled eggplant and peppers!

Last night's dinner was incredible. I have been wanting a steak for a very long time now but they are so freaking expensive (no hormones, antibiotics, free range, humanely raised and slaughtered) but yesterday I broke down and bought one. This steak was incredible. T. and the girls had lamb. We used the same marinade on both of the eats and it was great on them both. Nice and fresh tasting. We served this along side some grilled peppers and some grilled eggplant. The peppers were just salted and grilled and the eggplant was smothered in Olive Oil, salt, garlic powder, pepper, and paprika. Yummmm!!!

Lamb and Beef Marinade

1 cup of Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 inch of fresh ginger, sliced

  • Allow all the ingredients to blend together for about 1 hr. Add meat to a Ziploc bag and divide the marinade if you are doing what we did and using the marinade for 2 different meats.
  • Allow to marinade for about 15 minutes.
  • Grill until desired doneness is reached!
As Always...

Happy Entertaining!!!

Hey Judy -pretty sure that Osso is thinking something like this:
"Of all the families I could have chosen.. I get one that thinks I can walk on water..."

LOL he does NOT look happy - give him a bit of lamb...go on...

I bet the pooch didn't last much longer than it took to take the photo...then you gave him the boot from your poolside chaise! lol

If I had to choose, I would have opted for the lamb wins me over.

Fearless Kitchen-I love simple, fresh flavors!

Oh Lynda - LOL, this poor dog (mutt) comes into a family of purebred labs and goldens and we just assume he likes to swim!!!

Hi Peter-Nah I let him have it. At least it kept him cool! I like steak-I have some trouble with the strong flavor of lamb sometimes.
