Yum!

A couple of weeks ago I posted about a gal named Wendy who lives in Scotland and has a lovely blog called A Wee Bit of Cooking. I made her Lamb Pilaf recipe tonight and it was super! No regular reader will be surprised that I did play with it a little. (Does substituting beef for lamb constitute more than a “wee bit”? I enjoy the taste of lamb, but really can’t tolerate the smell as it cooks.) I’m quite convinced I am incapable of following a recipe to the letter! But Wendy’s Pilaf was satisfying and scrumptious. She recommended serving it with a dollop of yogurt. I used some thick Greek yogurt added some mint, basil, dill and finely minced cucumber to make a sort of Raita, which I served on the side in a small sauce cup. And for all of you in the Southern Hemisphere heading into winter, this Pilaf recipe is a must try now.

My sister in law's ex husband couldn't stand the smell of lamb cooking either, I LOVE it, and judging from the reactions of the furry sharks, they love it too (though they prefer it raw).

This sounds delicious and I'm off to check out Wendy's blog now! Saw Roo also mentioned her and now I'm doubly quizzy...
