Lamb Chop brain fart (for my anniversary dinner)

jameshig | Aug 4, 2010 06:53 PM

My and my wife's anniversary is tomorrow (4 years) and I read somewhere that the 4 year anniversary gift is lamb (okay, so it's not, but lamb chops were on sale today and I figured that it would be better than nylon or silk).

So I have the lamb, however that's about all I got.

I have spent an hour or so looking through chowhound and epicurious for good side ideas for starch/veg, but haven't found anything.

I was originally thinking that I'd saute (I wish I had a grill, but I don't) double boned chops and then deglaze the pan and serve over roasted pimentone roasted sweet potatoes (or vanilla sweet mashers) with the jus.

I got nothin' for the sauce or the veg, and am not really stoked on the starch, but will do it in a pinch if we can't come up with something better.

Not gonna do mint (never understood that combination).

Help me chowhound, you are my only hope.

PS: our grocery stores suck here (we don't have any specialty markets like wholefoods, or even co-ops) so while I'd love to get something like figs, I'm not gonna be able to. Would love to do a roasted fig demi glace, but it's not gonna happen.

Also, if you have the best idea for an anniversary/sexy dessert, please HELP!
