On Saturday we celebrated Emma and Ethan's birthdays with a party in the afternoon. We enjoyed being with the grandchildren and all of the family and celebrating these two special children. Stephanie and David stayed with us that night so I had David and Gerry pick out what they wanted for dinner. The guys did the grocery shopping on the way home while I started getting things organized in the kitchen.
We had lamb chops that were marinated briefly in olive oil, red wine vinegar, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper. Once marinated, they went on the grill for about 6 minutes until medium done. The lamb came off and rested, tented with foil to finish cooking.
Meanwhile the tzatziki was made with 1/2 of a cucumber, a couple of scallions, some plain Greek yogurt, some fresh mint leaves, a little olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and a few red pepper flakes all pureed in the food processor.
We also grilled some fresh asparagus and some pita breads.

A very nice pick by the guys!
