      Friday, July 4/03 My partner, Smiley, came home from work today, opened the door and said "This recipe contest of your's makes our court yard smell like a European bistro". The aroma of Braised Lamb Shoulder Chops simmering in juices flavoured with the recipe's prescribed herbs and seasonings adds to the anticipated enjoyment of dinner. We love a lemon addition to our food, use it frequently, so this recipe immediately appeals to our taste preference. The intelligent combination of the seasonings creates a subtility, yet enhances the sweetness of carrot, and onion, while toning down the acidity of tomato and contributes to the ultimate tenderness of Shoulder Chops. (I also added one very large thinly sliced white, mushroom for no good reason other than I could not help myself - I am a mushroom junkie...) To complement our dinner, I baked two potatoes, cut them in half, but not right through. (I wanted to be able to fold the jackets back over the flesh) I scooped out the flesh while still hot - (that took some doing) - mixed it with a fork until the lumps were smoothed away then added enough canola/soya margarine to bind the flesh, returned the potato to their jackets, folded the skins back over the potato only enough to have plenty of potato protruding through the opening. Then, scooped sauce and veggies over the potatoes and chops. AMBROSIA, PURE AMBROSIA! I did find, however, that one hour simmering time was not quite long enough to tenderize the celery; but I am a compulsive taster, so I allowed it to continue simmering while I continued tasting, until the vegetables were al dente. Total simmer and taste time about 1.5 hours. The sauce and vegetables are so tasty I could easily eat it on its own, like soup. Served with a bottle of chilled Terre del Sole, Pinot Grigio, from the 2001 Pasqua collection, made Smiley forget all about the airport woes. When I asked for an objective opinion of the recipe, the answer was an intelligent "Yum-Yum, Goot-Shtofe". I guess that brilliant critique means this recipe is a definite keeper, and I thank you for your contribution to the "Ready Set Cook Spring 2003 contest.

      This is a very good recipe for people who are not used to the strong taste of lamb. The spicy tomato sauce with veggies & lemon tanginess, made this dish simply delicious. Yes, the lamb and veggies were a perfect match to instant Idaho mashed potatoes! Further, I cut the recipe in half and used some fresh tomatoes, tomato paste from a tube, less cooking times... with perfect results.

      Yum! I followed the recipe as is, except I added fresh sliced mushrooms. Very easy -- VERY delicious. Don't skip the fresh mint! And, don't count on leftovers.
