  1. I'm very excited to not be eating ANY risotto or hoisin pork today. I'm so over those leftovers.

    Tonight's a hockey night, so on my lunch break, I'm going to go to Jimmy John's to grab a sandwich I can eat in the car on my way to the game tonight since I'm going straight from work. It's probably not much better nutritional wise than the arena food, but it's certainly cheaper. Now I just hope nobody sees me going into Jimmy Johns to get the sandwich, then stashing it in the car, then going into the Chipotle a few doors down to buy my lunch haha!

    1. After last night's delicious, but rich, turkey pot pie, tonight I am going to make this sesame chicken recipe from slender kitchen. I'm going to throw in some broccoli as well.

      1. As for me, marinated lamb tips will be thinly sliced and quick-sauteed, perhaps adding a bit of lemon juice and wine to the pan to be reduced for a "sauce". Roasted garlic green beans alongside.

          (careful with that lemon!)
          what exactly are lamb tips? i don't think i've ever seen them.... but they sound wonderful nonetheless. because they're lamb.

          1. re: mariacarmen

            I think it's just larger chunks of lamb that you'd use for kebabs, mc. I believe it's the end cuts from what a butcher trims off of larger roasts. They can be upwards of the size of my palm - sometimes triangular in shape, sometimes a flat piece. These were purchased at my local butcher, but I know that Trader Joe's has pre-marinated Burgundy & Pepper Lamb Tips.

            And I've heard there's a rash of super-lemonizing going around. I won't go overly lemony. :-)

              Lemonizing in excess, should be illegal! :-}}}

                  I envision a food critic, standing over my dining table giving a thumbs-down to my meal; I grab a juicy 1/2 lemon - and squeeze it in his general direction - and get him in the eye!

                  Hey - super lemony!

                  1. re: LindaWhit

                    Hey Linda, you were right! i found Burgandy and Pepper Lamb Tips at my TJs today! I'm so excited! now to pick a day to spring lamb (get it?) on the BF.....

                    i can't wait to try them!

                    1. re: mariacarmen

                      Let us know how they are, mc (I noticed on the new thread that you tucked them into the freezer for later use). I've not yet bought them.

                  2. re: mariacarmen

                    MC - we never get 'lamb tips' or 'beef tips' on the west coast... from what I understand, it is a coastal butcher's cut thing. CI has several recipes it recommends beef tips for, and never have seen them around.

                    1. re: gingershelley

                      ah, i see. thanks for clearing that up!

                  1. re: mariacarmen

                    A play on Berheenia's suggestion in the last thread. :-)

                    1. Roasted chicken (rubbed with rosemary, lemon zest, kosher salt, and olive oil), rice, and roasted carrots here.
