Lamb with Asparagus and Snow Peas on Large Couscous; we have walls! sort of — 13 Comments

  1. Very spring-like dish with just the right types of meats and vegetables. Asparagus has finally made it to my local farmer’s markets, so I can finally feel good about using asparagus when I steal other bloggers’ recipes.
    That space looks like it has such potential to be totally beautiful.

  2. I can’t wait to see how the space turns out. Will there be a bathroom up there, too? You guys amaze and impress me.

  3. Your husband must be very handy and patient, too. Mine did not put my kitchen island where i want it and won’t listen to my reasoning that it needs to be advanced about 10 inches. Can I borrow your husband for an afternoon?

  4. Katie you can’t believe how happy I am to see that empty space.. although yours seems to be a lot tidier than mine at the moment *shudder* (and more beautiful). Same track here, we had leg of lamb last week with roasted veggies.

  5. Katie – your house looks amazing….can hardly wait to see what else you do with it….and the lamb dish…so love lamb. Ina

  6. This is indeed the perfect spring dish. You made my mouth water! Thanks for the inspiration. I’m looking forward to witnessing the farmhouse transformation– looks like a beautiful canvas to build on.

  7. Love all of that open space to design. So much work but so much fun too. Love the lamb recipe. Asparagus season is in full swing.

  8. I would say, just call it delicious and everyone will be happy. Looks like a great meal…lamb mixed with spring. Mmmm.
    Walls sound awesome! Congrats to you guys!

  9. Notes are being taken as I start designing my apartment in a few months. No remodeling, though. Love reading about the progress of the house.

  10. How lovely to have a fresh, blank space to work with! I can’t wait to see what you put up there. It’s so fun to watch your house develop!
    And the lamb–how about a lamb skillet? That implies it spent a bit more time than a stir-fry would.

  11. Rachel, we eat asparagus like crazy for about 6 weeks – then nothing until the next year.
    Zoomie, there will be 2 bathrooms up there, with the one down here becoming a ‘powder room’.
    Christine. thanks for the lamb – and no clue about the beams…. a couple hundred years, I’m guessing. The guy (in his 60’s)we bought the stairs from said his grandfather was born in this house and he didn’t know anything before that.
    Meredith, next time we’re in the area he’ll come and move it for you ;-)) And just so you know, he’s not always that accomodating….
    Baking Soda, it’s filling up fast though. Spring lamb is so good.
    Ina, I’m kind of anxious to see, too ;-))
    Food-G cooking with spring veggies is so much fun after winter….
    Penny, yeah, all that open space….. mon mari is finding it a bit daunting.
    Lannae, me too…..
    Joanne, walls are a wonderful thing – as is spring
    Sanura, any design / building / remodeling is both fun and scary. Bon chance with yours!
    Tracy, lamb skillet – that’s good. I should have a ‘name that dish’ contest. It’s filling up fast up there….
