Get OUT of My Belly

I'm working out a recipe for a cooking contest. Yes, cooking contest. I set a goal to enter a few this year because it's so NOT me. Winning is beyond my control, but I have to feel like I put forth an honest effort.

Yesterday I worked on meat combos for a burger contest-I grilled chicken sausage, lamb and a hybrid of both. The hybrid actually won the taste test-but I had forgotten how lamb settles in the stomach and stays and stays and stays. By 10 pm I was so sick of the feelng of lamb in my stomach I fed the rest to the dogs-I literally couldn't stand the idea of ever eating it again.

The dogs support the cooking contest research by eagerly gobbling up the failures and test runs. It's now 11:17 (hah, my birthday) on Sunday, and I still feel like I have a belly full of lamb. Lamb lingers. I'm taking it off the running for my burger medium........BLECH.

That is so american, I noticed that when I lived there, people really eat and then they feel pretty bad, I don t know I guess we have different crap tahn you do, we for example go out at 3 am not before because it is to early and you end up at 7:oo am which twisted all your time schedule for the week.

Ooops, My birthday is 11-17, but thanks anyway.

Lamb is clearly not a summer dish.

The cooking contests sound fun!

I'm not fond of lamb at all, taste and the staying power. Mom always thinks it a treat to make it...we gag
