       If you haven't put the grill away, do the lamb and sweet potatoes on the barbecue.

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.

Grilled or Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Total time: 40 minutes
   These get a bit crusty on the outside and incredibly soft and creamy on the inside.  Yes, the skins are edible and good for you ;-))

Baked Tomatoes

    In England they serve plain baked tomatoes for breakfast.  We like them, stuffed, as a first course.  They also make a lovely, vegetable side dish, especially now, as we move into fall.
