Grilling at its best-Lamb Chops

For those who doubted me about this blog, I hope I am proving you wrong with my second post!! Although I would love to write about the drama that unfolded last night on the Bachelorette, I am going to restrain myself and share with you one of my favorite meals. This meal does require you to use the grill so either learn how to light the grill or find yourself a handy man! 

1 package of lamb loin chops (usually 4-5 to a pack)
***Beware, do not buy the rack of lamb. I have made this mistake and it was costly. You only need the lamb loin chops which should be pre-packaged in the meat section of the supermarket. 
Whole Carrots (should be about $2)
Asparagus ($3)
Spring Salad Mix
Cherry tomatoes (I buy cherub tomatoes and they are usually expensive at $3.99 but totally worth it)

Lamb Chops
1. Season lamb chops with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper on both sides (NOTHING ELSE).
2. Grill for approximately 4 minutes on each side (keep in mind all grills are different though). 

Roasted Carrots
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Wash carrots thoroughly and dry with paper towels.
3. Slice whole carrots in half as best as you can. Be sure to not chop off your finger. I have had a few close calls!
4. Lay carrots out on baking sheet. I always cover my baking sheets with aluminum foil for easy clean up. 
5. Generously drizzle all of the carrots with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. You can also sprinkle the carrots with fresh rosemary if you want!
6. Cook for a total of 10 minutes. In order to make sure the carrots do not stick to the foil, move the carrots around with a spatula after the carrots cook for 5 minutes.
Use this same recipe to make roasted asparagus (do not use the fresh rosemary).

I served my lamb chops with carrots, asparagus and a spring salad mix with cherry tomatoes. I also threw together some watermelon and feta cheese to add a touch of sweet to this meal. This was ALOT of food so you could split this meal into two separate ones. All in all, this meal is very simple and one that anyone could make! I am on a cooking kick so stay tuned for more recipes to come....
