Sunday Serving - healthy and relaxing

"One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating". ~Luciano Pavarotti and William Wright, Pavarotti, My Own Story

Well what better way to end a weekend than to spend it having a healthy meal and relaxing with friends. This meal serves 8, is really quick to prepare (about 15 mins), easy to cook and tastes delicious - give it a go and let me know what you think.

Lamb Chops and mustard glaze

About 1.5kg of sweet potatoes
Approx 1/4 cup of wholegrain mustard
Approx 2 tsp of mixed herbs
About 2 tbs of honey
12 lamb chops (or pork chops)
Olive oil
2 onions

1. Peel sweet potato and cut into 1cm thick slices. Cook in boiling water for 5 minutes or until par-cooked. Drain. Refresh in cold water and drain again.

2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius. Combine mustard, mixed herbs and honey in a small bowl. Season to taste.

3. Heat a large ovenproof frying pan over high heat. Add chops to pan with onion. Cook chops for 2 minutes each side or until brown. Add mustard mixture to pan. Turn chops to coat. Transfer pan to oven and cook for 5-7 minutes or until lamb is cooked through.

4. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add sweet potatoes and cook, turning, for 5 minutes or until browned. Remove from heat.

5. Divide sweet potato among plates, top with chops and spoon over mustard glaze and onion. Add other vegies that you like.

Serve with a nice red wine.

Enjoy with great conversation.

Be a little indulgent for dessert - homemade custard with choc chips.

Easy and delicious meal.
