Think out of the box

It is amazing to realize how easily we come to rely upon certain ground beef...when we need something quick or easy to prepare. Well, what does one do when there is none available? Ground pork and sausage have produced favorable results in a few recipes. But, I am here to tell you what is really good....lamb. I am very thankful that there are a few of those critters outside, safely grazing their way to my table. Ground lamb adds a delectible dimension to lasagne and spaghetti that I did not expect. So, tonight it finds its way into my supper plans. Lamb sausage will be the main ingredient...along with some pasta, cheddar cheese, tomato sauce, onions and garlic. Mmmmm....I can taste it now. I'd better go to the kitchen and get busy.

But, I think when we pick up the latest steer from the butcher next week, I'll look forward to what we have missed for a couple of months now...burgers, sloppy joes, meatloaf, meatballs (the boys' favorite!), tacos. My Eldest Maiden just said, "it's not just the boys' favorite, Mama!"

Is it supper time yet?
