    This one is for the guys who love to grill. I'm not sure if you can get them at any store, but I know BiLo has them, is what I call ham steak. It's a slab of ham that's about an inch thick. If you can't find that you can use smoked boneless pork chops. Put them on the grill and cook them until they release a little juice. While they're warming up whisk together a cup of lemon juice and a cup or so of light brown sugar. It should be the consistancy of glue....try it and if it's to sweet add more juice and visa versa. Brush on the ham while it's on the grill. Keep coating until the ham is an amber color. You can serve this with just about anything. I usually go the country route and make mac and cheese and baked beans, but it works equally well with just about anything else.

    The slice of pork your describing is called a gammon steak and is generally given a honey and mustard gaze. Famously served as ham, egg and chips with a light mixed salad drizzled with lemon juice.

    If you guys haven't tried roasting lamb yet, I'd definitely suggest that.

    I'm not sure if any of you are familiar with the grocery store "Trader Joes" but it's a great store with amazing, natural, gourmet products that are actually REASONABLY priced. You'll be amazed if you haven't gone there.

    The reason I mention Trader Joes is because they have a boneless lamb roast there that's already pre-seasoned (I think it's called Burgundy lamb or something) and it's really good.

    Just stick a couple cloves of garlic into it before roasting and roast potatoes with it as well.

    It's super easy, and seems difficult. Could easily be an impressive dish

    Don't get me started on Trader Joes, they're awesome!!!



    Try the smoked mango flavored sausage. Yes they added MANGO to sausage.


    Sorry OP, my top picks at Trader Joes.

    1. Orange flavored cranberries

    2. Jalapeno Bean Chips




    A new item they put out, Mojito Salmon.

    Trader Joes also has a canned "Mojito Simmer Sauce" that you can use with anything, but it's really great to simmer w/ chicken.

    Everything in the store is amazing, I'm SO not hijacking this thread to post my top 100 items lol.

    Let's go shopping together Cheez.

    We don't have one of those here in SC, but the lamb is a great idea.

    Trader joe's lamb is pretty good but if you want to do one better you could buy a leg of lamb and while you're there get a head of garlic (yes a whole head not just a clove!) as well as some fresh sage and thyme (sorry no rosemary unless you're french!)
    Before you roast grab a knife (always fun!) and stab said lamb then stuff a slice of garlic with one of the aforementioned herbs (mix it up please!) then roast as usual.
    In the end you end up with a beautiful piece of lamb and a kitchen that smells like the south of france (or at least like AshleyL's place!).

    Stick a probe thermometer in that and wait until it reads 155 (to be safe) and then just slice of the slabs of love!....If you don't love it AshleyL and I will chip in to cover your cost! (Am I kidding? I don't know!....Does it matter?...NO!)

    If you try it and you like it...DON'T THANK ME! just claim it as your own.
