Grilled Lamb Chops with Lemon and Rosemary
Roasted Potatoes with Vinegar and Mustard
Baked Zucchini (Courgette) Sticks

Cooking time: 40 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

       An easy, relaxing dinner. I did the Zucchini Sticks and Potatoes in the oven - easy, and the oven doesn't add heat to the kitchen like the cook top does.

Grilled Lamb Chops with Lemon and Rosemary

Total time: 35 minutes
    Is there a better match than lamb and rosemary?  This simple marinade, with a bit of soy sauce and garlic, imparts a lot of complex flavors to our lamb chops.  Great grilled but equally good done indoors.  A grill pan for your stove top is nice but a hot nonstick skillet works fine.

    We grill potatoes a lot in summer; with a lot of variations.... This one is almost like a hot potato salad.
