Bring-Your-Own-Chair Easter Event or “I don’t normally like cauliflower, but I like this Cauliflower”

Marinated Barbecue Lamb with Mint Chimichuri Sauce and Cauliflower Gratin

Marinated Barbecue Lamb with Mint Chimichuri Sauce and Cauliflower Gratin

We are still waiting to move in to the Mid Century Modern home (affectionately known as The Money Pit) that we are remodeling.  The only items left are putting together the Easy Closet System  (looks complicated) and getting our brand new Induction Range working.  We haven’t even had a chance to use it yet (except once when we boiled water.)  And now it doesn’t work, even though the repairman has been there three times and plans on coming out this week.  Sigh.  If it’s not one thing, it’s another.  (If you want to read about our remodeling “adventures” you can find it here.)

I love steak. I am not a meat and potatoes girl.  I am a steak with yummy sauces girl.  Although I will eat potatoes when Yes!Chef! makes them (and he loves potatoes), I can do without them for the most part.  But pair up a great steak (and that includes ground up types of steak like hamburger) with a great sauce (not gravy) and some interesting veggies and I am a happy woman.

Roast Beast or Family Birthday Happiness

I am starting to fall a little behind with Yes!Chef!’s food blogging.  He’s pumping out great food faster than I can take pictures, edit them, taste the food and blog.  Then, there’s this whole world around me that is begging to be photographed, to say nothing of my photography business.  So many beautiful people, so little time.   I’ve been as busy as our Lavender Bees.  All this to say that I have some heavy duty catching up to do, hopefully in the next few days.
