SONY DSC I was at the farmers market today in Old Strathcona where I bought  some organic lamb chops from one of the regular local farmers that usually have a stand there. I have found that since we have been eating more organic foods, the  difference in flavor is incredible. The nice thing about the market place is that you get to know the farmers that raise their animals and they are willing to answer any questions that you may have to ask.     One thing I  love is when spring hits and you start to smell the scents of barbequing. I remember being young and every weekend we would head out to one of the near lakes and we would cook outdoors. It always brings back great memories and happy feelings. Well, tonight wasn’t exactly a hot summer day, but I wanted to grill the lamb chops that I bought. The menu for tonight’s supper is grilled lamb chops and since I had also bought purple cabbage at the market along with feta goat cheese, I though why not combine the two and what better way to pull this dish together with a warm potato salad and some home made tzatziki. A beautiful dish with unique flavors. Bon Appetit! DSC08194-1024x685 SONY DSC
