As some of you may have read at that blog of ill repute, I–stupidly–attempted to make a rather involved meal and keep the babby happy while Mr. Slayer did some fantasy kickball thing or whatever. (Have I mentioned I don’t pay attention to sports?) So’s you don’t think Mr. Slayer sits around in a wifebeater threatening to withhold his ginormous dong if I don’t make him kingly meals, I should add the caveat that I prolly just should have scrapped this dinner idea and let him do his own thing or made something simpler.
ANYHOO, I made grilled lambchops, tomatoes and pita along with some homemade raita. (You can find a hundred variations of this I made this batch with a little lemon, honey, cayenne, cumin and mint.)

Anyway, if you want to do something similar, start by marinating the chops. For my marinade I used:
- Juice of 2 lemons
- About equal parts olive oil
- 2 to 3 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
- Greek seasoning or just salt and pepper and maybe some dried oregano or something
- A dash of sugar or honey
- Chopped fresh dill and/or parsley and/or mint
Anyway, marinate the chops (I marinate stuff for up to 48 hours!) then grill them on a smoking hot grill for probably no more than like, 2 minutes and 30 seconds on each side. Maybe even less if you like your chops on the rare side. Do the the pita first though.
