Lamb Last Night - it's what was for dinner!

The lamb chops, grilled then topped with a sprinkling of rosemary salt, were awesome.  Mel Thompson, of Sierra Farms, grows some of the best grass fed pastured lamb.  Mel is in Dixon, CA.  He has 1/2 or whole lambs, cut and wrapped, for sale about every two months or so.  Check out his blog at  Get on his mailing list and enjoy some of the best lamb you've ever tasted.

Enough about the lamb, with it, we enjoyed the first corn on the cob of the season - sweet and delicious.  To complete the meal, we had an arugula salad with peaches and feta cheese dressed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

But far and away the best treat was a vanilla ice cream float made with Straus vanilla ice cream and Drinkwell Lavender softers, more info at  You can buy the softers from Rainbow Grocery in San Francisco or the Saturday farmers market at the Ferry Building, and, of course, if you belong to the Eatwell CSA, you can purchase them to be delivered with your box.  We are going try the next two Lavender softers with chocolate ice cream later this week or next week, if we can hold off that long!

Have a great day!
