Plum Ketchup:

  1. Saute pork sausage and crumble as it cooks. When the pork is cooked, add the onions, jalapenos, garlic and tomatoes then cook until just tender. Add the cheese and allow to melt. Then add the cilantro.
Chili Cheese Baked Potato:
  1. Bake potatoes until they are fully cooked, 1 hour at 400°F or until internal temperature reaches 200°f, then cut off the top third. Carefully remove the potato flesh with a spoon and fold with queso, corn kernels and green onions. Return to the hollowed out potato and reheat until golden brown then top with sour cream.
Rack of Lamb with Glaze:
  1. In a non-reactive pan, bring the balsamic vinegar, soy, jelly, dijon mustard and garlic to a boil and reduce in volume to 1 1/3 cup. Season and grill the lamb to the desired temperature. Brush the glaze on the lamb rack during the final stages of cooking and upon completion of cooking. Cut the rack in four equal size pieces and arrange in a crown around the chili cheese baked potato on a large round plate. Sprinkle mustard seeds and spoon some of the glaze around the perimeter of the plate.
