Lime And Coriander Marinated Lamb Chops

Coriander is a herb you either love or hate. But if you love it then for sure you need to make these Lime And Coriander Marinated Lamb Chops.

I hardly ever think that what I do or say is taking the moral high ground but something has happened recently that made me think about moral issues. I never share a secret and so I expect the same from the people around me. But, who do you trust? I know I can trust a friend I have had for the last 30 years. I have been told so many secrets by so many people and sometimes I wonder if telling Dave counts as breaking the trust, but I know deep down, that it will be a betrayal. And so, I have secrets from my husband. I am the keeper of people’s sad / bad / not good things. Things that have happened to them, feelings that they have for other people, situations they have found themselves in. So, recently a friend shared something with me that was sacred – but she shared it with other people as well and one person broke her confidence which set about a chain reaction of events. People had to hide the truth of what they knew and I had to act in a way that conflicts with my moral compass. I want to tell the person to be aware and to not share her secrets, but if I tell her then she might cotton on to the fact that her secret has already been shared. She is going to find out eventually and I imagine she is going to be cross and angry, hurt and devastated. Even though the secret has been shared from a place of love, is that a good enough reason to break someone’s trust? I am in conflict here and most often when I face a dilemma I cook something to still my mind. I create a recipe to share with you, my reader. I let you into my confidence by not keeping kitchen secrets.

  1. A tricky one – asking someone to keep your secret can sometimes be a selfish act. The person wants to unburden but then leaves you with their burden and stress. So glad you share your delicious kitchen secrets though!

  2. I think you need to let the person know sothat she can have 1 confidant instead of telling everyone but expect everyone to keep it a secret whereas she herself can’t. Women!
    Yummy chops!

  3. You are on a coriander kick lately! It looks very good.
    People have a tendency to want to tell me everything and come to me with their problems. It gets a bit tiresome, I think.
    If someone is telling several people, I don’t think it is really a secret. I’m not sure what the person confided in you, but it sounds like they did something that was no so right. So… to me, it also sounds like a person who is just telling everyone so they can feel better about what they have done.
    If you don’t feel like hearing these things from this person anymore I would tell them.
    I have a bit of a similar situation going on now. One of my closest friends seems to stir things up with other’s all the time, including after my Open House, and tries to bring me into the middle of it all. It is so childish. I love her, but I just don’t want all the BS and drama. I will tell her, but sometimes I just don’t have the time or energy to put into such things.

    1. it was not quite the same with this friend but I get your point about the drama issues – I have once told a friend that if I do not answer the phone when she calls it is because I do not have the time right then to dedicate to listening 🙂

  4. I’m sorry that you are conflicted but it made your post very poignant, almost poetic in its ending!

  5. Oooooh, raw nerve! You know how I feel about this particular subject Tandy. Time your friend found out from someone in a loving way that the secret is out…….One thing about things like that happening….you do learn who you can and cannot trust. Sorry you are carrying that burden xxx and YUM chops….so look forward to having some of those one day 😉

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
