This recipe is another just like Dad use to make back in the day meal. Dad and I use to eat lamb pretty often growing up. Then I always had a great left over lunch to look forward to the next day because my mother and sister never wanted any of it. Zo also do not like lamb so it is really few and far between when I have it. Now and then I will sneak it into the cart as we grocery shop. Unlike my mother who just does not like the taste of lamb, Zo just feels bad for the cute little lambs. I know she likes lamb though because I ordered a lamb meal at the Greek fest last year and when she asked for a bite I said, "Babe you do not want any of this." She was really persistent and I said, "OK then." She thought it was wonderful and I said, " I thought you did not like lamb?" She exclaimed, "That was lamb?" I replied with, "Yes, that is why I said you do not want any." One of the down sides to me teasing everyone I know all the time is... They do not know when I am being serious. Now I know Zo loves lamb but I still can not get her to eat it willingly. It is too bad because this is one of my favorite ways to have it. She had the vegetables with me but was still a little put off because I cook them in the lamb drippings. She had to admit though just how great they are.

Ingredients:
Lamb
1.5 lb lamb loin chops
1/4 tsp parsley flakes
1/3 tsp fresh sage (diced)
1 tsp fresh thyme (diced and then some extra for garnish)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
kosher salt (to taste)
2 tsp olive oil

Vegetables
1 yellow squash (sliced into 1/8 inch slices)
1 zucchini (sliced into 1/8 inch slices)
1 sweet onion (chopped)
1 garlic clove (minced)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
kosher salt (to taste)

Evenly season lamb loin chops with seasonings.

In a medium skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Once heated add lamb loin chops and cook for 5 minutes. Flip lamb loin chops and cook for an additional 5 more minutes or until done. Remove lamb chops and sit to the side. Add vegetables to skillet and cook 10-13 minutes or until onions are turning translucent.

Serve Lamb warm with a little fresh thyme as a garnish.
