So tonights dinner was a throw together at the last minute event. I needed something nice and nutritious for my mom, ease for me and I needed to use up some tomato’s I still have from City Fresh. Man do I miss CF. Nothing beats the deal you get from join that food program.  Dave and I really missed it this weekend when we went to the farmers market and SPENT so mola on vegetables and didn’t get nearly the amount we were getting throw CF.

I have had some ground lamb hanging around in my freezer for a few weeks. Figured it was about time to use it. We love lamb in this house and generally use ground lamb for mousaka but I decided to try something different yesterday. The lamb meat balls were a hit with the sauce not to mention Henien’s unbelievably good broccoli salad. Someday I need to figure what the sauce is in the salad. The combination of broccoli, bacon, cashews, raisins and onions is a taste from heaven. Then combine that with the recipe from Chow.com makes a wonderfully quick meal in under 30 minutes.
