Grilled Lamb Chops and Vegetables

This post features the vegetables, especially the sweet potatoes.  Sweet potatoes bring to mind the gooey sweet apple and  marshmallow dish from Thanksgiving.  Hate them.  This recipe, adapted from Bobby Flay, presents savory rather than sweet potatoes.  The potato is first boiled until it is just barely tender.  While it is cooking, mix olive oil, minced garlic salt and pepper and an herb in a saute pan. (Bobby suggests oregano, we used rosemary) Saute until the garlic is golden brown.  For one large potato we used 1/4C oil.  Remove the potatoes from the water, cool and slice into wedges.   Coat the potatoes with the oil mixture, skewer and grill for about out 10 min.  This is the same amount of time it takes to cook the other veggies and the lamb (5 min. on a side for med. rare).  The squash and onions were tossed with olive oil salt and pepper before grilling.  We loved the potatoes this way.
