Garlic Basil Lamb Chops

Garlic Basil Lamb Chops

The inspiration for this dish originated from my 50 Quick Summertime Dinners collection and the view from great island’s Lemon Thyme Lamb Chops. These lamb chops fast, and truly simple! I used basil since I grow it in my garden every summer season, however thyme does work, too. I decided to roast slices of lemon right together with the lamb, and served it over a bed of fresh spinach. The spinach you see on the plate was basically the degree of the spinach that grew this Spring. I’m going to attempt again in the Fall and see if it does better then. In 2015 when I planted spinach in the Spring nothing but weeds grew. Turns out, I am incredibly good at growing weeds.
