Lamb Chop



I walked from our hotel at Russell Square down to St Pauls in blistering sunshine, then went for a therapeutic trip on the London clipper on the Thames then after a short jaunt to the British Museum i met the prof for a late lunch at Dishoom

Dishoom is a delight.......it also serves the best lamb chops this side of Christmas
I ate three in 12 minutes!

  1. Did you eat the bones too? Or maybe you slipped them in your manbag for your canine family back home?

  4. Crikey ...... I could go a few of those lamb chops!! They look ever so good but I actually prefer mine raw!! Didn't your Mum ever tell you not to eat too fast? I'm always getting into trouble for wolfing my food down.

  5. Mutton was served more often than I would have liked during my year at the South Pole; much of our food supplies came from New Zealand. Although it's been a few years since I ate it, I have no desire to taste it again... even if it's in the more tender form of lamb and prettily plated.

  6. I also ate delicious Lamb chops yesterday. Ours were the 'butterfly' type chops, and the restaurant gave us four between three. I think they just like to see grown adults fight.

  7. Lamp chops reminds me my mother said after she wed, my dad said the one meat he didn't like was lamb chops. Thinking it was probably because no one had ever cooked them well for him, later one meal she prepared some without saying to him what they were. He ate two or three, seemed to relish them and said as much, so she told him what they were. She received a cold stare in return and was told never to serve them to him again. A few years later he deserted our family. Do you suppose there was a connection?

    1. The husband of a friend of mine was extremely particular about his food likes and dislikes. He would only eat pork sausage links, not patties. Same stuff, just different shape. One morning she gave him the patties. He ate them, but immediately went to the bathroom and threw up. Go figure.

  8. A sight to give me that needed last push to outright veganism. Mind you, it's an experience I get in more practical terms several times a day when I have to feed the pussies - and necessarily have to shut my mind off while doing it!

  9. Hey, I was in London yesterday. Had lunch with my son and my brother on a rooftop in the west end. We had a great view of St. Paul's. Perhaps you were walking there just as I was looking. Goodness, it's a small world!

  10. Seeing that puppet has reminded me how much the female puppeteer used to unsettle me as a child! You had the perfect weather for London yesterday.

  16. And so artfully presented. But I have to admit I was disappointed to see my favorite puppet, Lamb Chop, only to find a post about meat.

  18. Dishooms?? I love lambchops, they look delicious. But, Oh, what a description of the classical ballet! Are you sure Cruella the ville was part of that particular story??? We are heading for London in august, staying in the St Pancras area. So very glad you had such good days in London!!I bet you missed your tiny zoo a bit, any way? Those loving loving hearts!!
