Here’s a hint for new parents: if a recipe claims to be “easy for entertaining” because you can make most of it ahead of time, latch on to that recipe and assemble everything when you’re not tripping over your children during The Dreaded Witching Hour. I made the marinade for this lamb and mixed up the yogurt sauce late one night when both of my children were (miraculously) sleeping. The next evening, I just had to broil the lamb chops and steam a vegetable for dinner, and we felt like we were dining in a restaurant – a terribly decorated, noisy restaurant with horrible service, but a restaurant with great food nonetheless!

One side note: the yogurt sauce was VERY minty, so if you’re not wild about mint, I would drastically reduce the amount of mint, or just eliminate it altogether.
