After six long weeks of being away for work, the Honey is finally back home, and the house is starting to feel the right size again. We were curious to see how our seven-month-old puppy would react; if he would remember his Dad after that much time away, but sure enough our little guy went bounding eagerly out to the driveway for the homecoming, the wiggliest, happiest little creature you can imagine. We spent a couple of days catching up, just the two of us and the pup, schedule-free and sneaking in a few little dates here and there, before settling back into the regular routine and both returning to work this week.
I actually made these succulent, Pan-Seared Lamb Chops last week before the Honey came home – a savory comforting meal for one on a rainy, early summer evening – but with all the planning and my excitement last week before his arrival, I’m only just sharing them with you now. This is such a simple dish – quick lamb chops with fresh herbs and garlic and sweet, caramelized Cippolini onions – but so satisfying, making for an elegant and delicious dinner.
