As we finished up dinner last night, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Laugh as a result of the delicious delirium which ensued after such an epic cant-stop-licking-your-fingers-kind-of-meal, or cry uncontrollably from the fact that it was over. I’ll be honest, one or two welled-up tears may have puddled in my eyes, but at least, I tell myself, I can look forward to next time. Typically, I know a recipe is worthy of dog-eared status, and a next time, when I’m still pining over it the following day.
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock.
Fast forward to 6:30 a.m. this morning, and as suspected, I opened my eyes and immediately started thinking of last night’s Rosemary Lamb Popsicles. There’s not much more to be said, really. Summer’s around the corner and she is screaming—literally SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF HER LUNGS, for these herb encrusted (by the way, I LOVE using panko breadcrumbs for this crust), minty, garlicky, flavor-wholloping popsicles. You can easily whip these little gems up on any weeknight, or turn it into a showstopper for all those upcoming summer BBQ’s and soirees. Topped with a big helping of mint gremolata and served along side some couscous or a simple green salad, and you’ve got a pretty darn good reason to laugh all summer long.
