Rack of Lamb

Last week, my dad called. He had a computer issue, didn't want to talk to me about it, wanted to talk to SP about it. SP told him he'd stop by over the weekend to take a look. Then my mom called and asked if we'd like to stop by Sunday afternoon and then stay for dinner. We said, sure. She said she was going to make rack of lamb.

We've not yet tried making rack of lamb ourselves although SP always looks at it in Costco. We've been wanting to try it, but always choose the leg of lamb or lamb chops instead. For rack of lamb, my mom salts & peppers it, sears the rack in a skillet, and then cooks it in the skillet in the oven according to the directions on the package. She gave one rack about 20 minutes for rare (for dad & SP) and the other rack 25 minutes. The 25 minute one was perfect for me. It was delicious! Maybe a bit fattier than the lamb chops, but the meat seemed a bit more tender. We definitely will have to try these at home.

She also made sauteed green beans with crumbled bacon and caramelized onions:
 And bought some dinner rolls from Bethel Bakery. I love their dinner rolls!
There also was a salad of lettuce, cucumber, tomato, and olives with poppyseed dressing. For dessert, she bought lady locks from Bethel Bakery.

Even though we spent the morning in a frenzy of activity, doing laundry and grilling some meat & veggies for dinner during the week and then cleaning up, it was nice to relax in their apartment on Mt. Washington and enjoy the view of Heinz Field and the Science Center and all the boaters on the rivers. It was nice to be served a delicious dinner and not have to clean up anything. Nor did we have to take anything. Not even wine. Just show up, fix a computer, and eat. That's a good Sunday.
