Gloria J Zucaro's "Lamb Chops With Potatoes"

6"H x 6"W Original Oil on Raymar Panel

This painting is for the Daily Paintworks weekly challenge.  The subject matter was "raw meat" as in the famous Dutch paintings of yesteryear.  I chose to buy some lamb chops and make my lamb chops with onions and potatoes.  Recipe...Cover bottom of glass baking pan with Olive Oil.  Slice a large onion and place in the bottom.  Slice white potatoes and place over onions.  Place Lamb chops on top of the potatoes. Sprinkle all with salt and pepper.  Add small pieces of fresh or canned peeled tomatoes around the top of the lamb.  Add water to top edge of chops, add bay leaf.  Cover with foil and bake at 350 for about 45 minutes, uncover and let  cook another 15 minutes.  Serve in bowls with juice and crusty Italian bread.
