My mother-in-law and I recently bought half of a lamb from the University of Illinois meat science lab. The lab opens a meat counter three days a week, selling fresh cuts of the livestock they “harvest.” This is what a half lamb looks like:
Dorothy loves lamb the way some people love good chocolate, and she swears she would enjoy it three times a day. She called me last night, excited to share a recipe she found in her old edition of the Better Homes and Garden cook book. I could hear her mouth watering over the phone, as she told me about the lamb patties wrapped in bacon. I made it tonight, and much to my surprise even my kids enjoyed it.
I served it with mashed potatoes, fruit salad, and a mixed green salad with home-made Caesar dressing.
