To be honest not too much into the game but into the food all the way.  Mike and I are having a few people over very casual. However I am running into a dilemma – we’ve been eating pretty “CLEAN” +Clean Program lately so I don’t wanna completely go “off the wagon” but that seems to go hand in hand with super bowl fare right?.  So I am gonna serve a mix of healthy savory food with some gotta have big fat-so bad its good for you favorites!

Mediterranean Grilled Lamb Chops

loriannmd, cheers, lamb chops, mediterranean cooking, colorado lamb, dmv, Super Bowl, football, grilling, game day, clean program, loriannmd, mike tauraso, frederick, best of frederick,

6 center cut rib lamb chops ( I prefer Colorado )  
5-6 large peeled cloves of garlic rough chopped
1/2 cup Olive Oil
S&P
1 Tbs crushed red pepper (more or less to taste)
1 – 2 Tbs dried oregano (place in palms and rub together – this releases the oils) drop in bag with everything
2 large lemons halved, squeezed and put in bag juice, lemons & all 


Place all ingredients in shallow dish or large freezer bag ( my fave – easy clean up) mix together refrigerate for 1 hour or over night 9 tossing and turning in bag like giving a mini lamb massage every so often  
Grill or bake chops your preference.


Serve with side Tzatziki – home made or store bought – homemade here. What did you expect people – “married to a chef“.  

 So easy to make – get details in recipe post this week – working on healthy condiments, toppings and dressings to share with you all!  My “Mocktail” on instagram feed – more to come soon – so yummy healthy and great alturnitive for you and your guest either non drinkers, desginated drivers or whatever and please serve in a pretty glass – makes world of difference!
