Our Pittsburgh turned Dallas based test cook Josef VS sent in a report on Marlene’s Lamb Chops a while back and it’s popped to the top of the “to-blog” list. I’m working my way through them all because round 3 of testing starts in July!
It’s always fascinating to read the feedback forms that our testers fill out. Josef thought that pork chops would be a nice alternative to the lamb – of course! I’d never thought of that, I’m going to try it. Pork with turnips. Yum yum. Josef also made a vegetarian version with Portobello Mushrooms, Marlene would have been proud! I’m going to take him up on the suggestion that we give more details about how to make the gravy. Oh goodness, I do love Marlene’s Lamb Chops and just writing about them makes me RAVENOUS!
I’m DJing at a house party tomorrow and Rosalind really made me laugh earlier. I sent her an email saying that she might get to meet the new man I’m interested in (he hasn’t got a nickname yet – early days) as I’ve invited him to the party as my plus one. She sent one back saying, “and I’ll get to meet the George Clooney lookalike too I hope”. Oh goodness, I had totally forgotten he was a friend of the hostess!
I emailed back to say that it promised to be very amusing, two potential squeezes at one event. Then she emailed back to say “and JW too…” Oh LORD, I’d completely forgotten that I met The Artist through the party hostess too. Cripes. Three squeezable men at the same party. I’m in big trouble…
I know and am very fond of Josef and am so pleased he tested one of Marlene’s recipes! And I want to hear more about those three men…
I’m so pleased to discover that the site is back up and running–it’s been way too long since I followed your adventures.
Tee hee – luckily only one of them showed up – the George Clooney lookalike. I had my hands full with the DJing so didn’t really get a chance to chat to him much. The new prospect is coming to my housewarming party (don’t suppose you could fly over for the 16th July?!) and the Artist Formerly Known as Gene might also come along. I think it promises to be a fun night….
Oh I wish I could! Mum and Dad are coming to NYC on the 14th July so I can’t turn tail and go home then. I just finished my book and am trying to get my second proposal in before the end of the summer so I don’t know if I can make it home at all this summer. This upsets me as I’m so homesick and have been all year.
Will you get to meet the other two soon? How was the George Clooney lookalike?
