My Version of Scalloped Potatoes

After about three hours of studying veterinary terminology, my brain felt raw yesterday.  After all that work, I wanted to enjoy something hearty and very yummy for dinner.  Something that would stick to my bones to bless me with a good nights sleep.  Kevin ran to the store before he came home from work to check out the meat section at H-E-B.  Lamb chops were the winner.  They were cut up and packed fresh by the butcher.  For dinner, we enjoyed rosemary lamb chops, dill and garlic asparagus, and scalloped potatoes. I’ve been making my scalloped potatoes for years and I can’t believe I haven’t shared my recipe with you guys yet!  People would beg me for the recipe whenever I would bring them for a work potluck.  They are super simple, you just have to put your time and effort into it.  I also wanted to test out our new mandolin.
