So I decided to be a sweet wifey the other day and make Big Daddy something special for dinner. Often, when we go out to eat, he’ll get a lamb dish, but we’ve never cooked lamb at home. I picked a nice looking rack of lamb up at the grocery this morning and although they were on the small side, they still looked good. I knew he’d be happy with Grilled Lamb Lollipops. Especially with a name like ‘lollipops’, who wouldn’t like that, right?
So I marinated them for a couple of hours. Actually, I marinated them while I prepped and cooked the side dishes so it wasn’t quite 2 hours.
