Lamb, Bamb, Thank you Ma’am

I have a little more time today, and wanted to thank Hubby for driving youngest to Uni at the weekend, so decided to do something a little more special for a midweek meal.

Lamb Steaks with Rosemary and Garlic, Dauphinoise potato’s with wilted spinach.



These gorgeous Lamb steaks are from the Market Porter delivery I had last month, I marinate for a few minutes with olive oil, roughly chopped fresh rosemary and a few crushed cloves of garlic – leave till ready to pan fry or griddle to your liking.


A sauce of red wine, beef stock, salt pepper and red currant jelly, stirred together and reduce by 3/4 then stir a table spoon of butter, whisk till shiny, smooth and coates a spoon.

For the potato’s, I finely slice a medium potato, put into a medium saucepan with double cream, milk, crushed garlic, salt and pepper and bring to the boil and simmer for a couple of minutes till just tender then tip into an oven proof dish and sprinkle with parmasan – oven cook for 20-30 minutes till golden brown.


The spinach is just put a rinsed bag of spinach into a frying pan with a knob of butter and finely grated nutmeg, stir till just wilted.


Serve and enjoy.

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
