Re-invented leftovers, and a book review

Lamb with tzatziki sauce on homemade naan
Italian potato salad

Lamb burgers earlier in the week adapted from Lydia's July e-book were fab-u-lous!
But...with only 2 of us eating, we had the usual leftovers.
And tho I had been extremely busy and on my feet pret' near all week with shopping, prepping and co-teaching the Ethnic Spices 101 class, I wanted to do some home cooking.
So, put together some homemade naan, crumbled up the lamb burgers and warmed them in the cast iron skillet, and threw together some tzatziki sauce.
The potato salad was one I just had seen on the Food Network this morning, and I knew I had all the fixings for it.
Sounded easy and fresh tasting so I quickly boiled up some new potatoes and gathered some lemon thyme and parsley from the garden and....


SO good!

And now for my first (of many!) book reviews...

Lydia, of Divine Health, is putting together monthly e-books dedicated to cooking wholesome "real" food, that is lower carb and gluten free!
I have tried several of her recipes so far and can honestly say they are real keepers!
You can get July's at a discounted price right now, and she is tying up the loose ends on August's e-book, which will be available in less than 2 weeks.
Lots of seasonal cooking with some extra special goodies thrown in there too.
Cherry chocolate walnut bliss....YOU could be next!

What is your week looking like?
Mine is full of endless possibilities!


Pin It!

Cindy, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE lamb and tzatziki! What a wonderful meal you have there. Thanks for sharing the recipes, too.

I'm still picking ollalieberries this week. Pray for me... I get lots of scratches, thorns, and I itch every day after I'm done. But I love the farm

Looks like a good book, now I am not a lamb eater at all, just do not care for the taste. You have a good week, and be blessed. Barbara
