Lamb Shanks, I have to say that Patti out did herself with this one. All I did was put the things she gave on the grill.

Topped off with Patti’s zesty bacon sausage stuffed mushrooms.…

Potluck Smoked Ham Cheese Gratin

Potluck Smoked Ham & Cheese Gratin was an idea of Patti’s. A friend of hers wanted an Easter dish for lots of people coming for dinner after Church.

Raspberry Rack of Lamb

Raspberry Rack of Lamb is a little tart and a little sweet and a whole lot of tender and juicy. The only thing better than a rack of lamb from Raider Red Meats is two racks! Plus, it’s only three ingredients to enhance the one of a kind lamb flavor, with a “Kiss of Smoke”. I think this is the VERY BEST Lamb I have ever eaten and we have to do this again and again.

Ribs N Beans

Ribs N Beans = BBQ heaven! Ken loves his ribs covered in Briggs True Bacon Bourbon BBQ sauce, but Patti wanted something different and Briggs True Texas Mustard Sauce filled the bill deliciously. We had our friend Harriett over to break the tie for which was best…she picked both. With the ribs we put on a batch of Kens Famous Baked Beans Redux taking a…

So Good… Patti and I have set one night a week…
