Comfort Food with a Side of Gratitude

Last Wednesday was one of those days—where it wasn’t just one thing—but all sorts of crazy stuff was goin’ down. I needed some good things to happen, and my day turned around when I found this greeting card at the post office:

It was my reset button. My happy pick-me-up as a reminder to live in the present, and pay attention to fleeting moments of beauty. To be grateful for what I have—when I have it. When I arrived home, I poured myself a Woodford and made these delicious gluten free breaded lamb chops with diced sweet potatoes and limas. ‘Cause when the going gets tough, the tough give thanks… and this was the perfect comfort food to be thankful for!

Breaded Lamb Chops with Diced Sweet Potatoes and Lima Beans

breaded lamb chops sweet potatoes and limas gluten free easy recipeIngredients:
8 single cut lollipop lamb chops
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

2 eggs
Dash of milk
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp butter
1 bag frozen lima beans
1 bag diced sweet potatoes (who knew these were so amazing?!)

This recipe was a cinch because I bought frozen Fordhook Lima Beans and frozen Diced Sweet Potatoes (which is my new favorite thing… in moderation) from the Fresh Market.

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

2. Scramble the eggs, adding just a dash of milk

3. Mix 1 cup GF bread crumbs with 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, then dip lamb chops into your egg mixture before coating with the bread crumbs

4. Place lamb chops in a glass Pyrex with olive oil on the bottom, drizzled with a smudge on of oil on top too, and bake about 30 minutes for medium doneness, or 15-20 minutes if you like ’em rare

5. Boil the limas according to package directions and sautée the sweets in a little butter and serve on the side!

Easy and healthy comfort food that gives you a calm, satisfied feeling which can turn your day around.
