Based on yesterday's post which ultimately did not include photos ot dinner, Jeri suggested we meme about it. (I still don't know exactly what meme means, so please excuse me if using it as a verb gives you agita.)
Last night's dinner was meant to be simple and delicious...grilled lamb shanks and rice. The rice was good. The lamb shanks...not so much. Here, look at them. They look delicious!
My conclusion, however, after trying to eat this meal is that grilling and lamb shanks might not go together. They were tough like you wouldn't believe. I'm not talking shoe-leather tough. I'm talking old-fashioned telephone made of bakelite tough. Inpenetrable by the human tooth tough.
These lamb shanks are what take "not good" from merely a slightly negative descriptor to being a defining moment for, "what is not good?"... these are!
In the end, we made do with Ice Cream. I think I'll stick to braising when it comes to lamb shanks.
