Rack of Lamb/Kale Chips/Heirloom Tomato » digest LA

I am still in the throes of a love affair with lamb. Today at the market, I saw rack of lamb on sale. I have cooked individual lamb chops, but never a whole rack. I decided to buy it and give it a try. I found this simple recipe on Epicurious, which also allowed me to use fresh rosemary, parsley, and thyme from my container garden.

I needed something to go along with the lamb and I just received my first CSA box ever. Whenever I had previously contemplated signing up for a CSA, I worried what I would do with all that kale. I don’t know why I thought kale was a given in a CSA box, but I must have been on to something because I opened the box and bingo… kale. I have never cooked kale. I am not sure if I have even ever eaten kale. I decided to make kale chips. I also served some heirloom tomato and avocado with a little balsamic vinegar.

So, what did I think? I checked the lamb temperature a few times and confirmed that it was the right temperature for medium rare, but the doneness freaked me out a bit. Maybe I am a medium lamb girl. The kale chips were… like… slightly bitter, insubstantial papery things. Everything was seasoned well between the garden herbs on the lamb and the sherry vinegar on the kale chips. All in all, it wasn’t a bad meal for a mellow day where I did marathon training in the morning and just wanted to lounge about for the rest of the day. I have another week to figure out something else to do with kale before the next CSA box arrives. Now what to do with all that eggplant?
