Anyone ever cook with lamb?

A guy who works with DH raises lamb for slaughter as a hobby. So DH bought one. Or a half? I don't know. Anyway, so now I have this great assortment of lamb meat in my freezer.

Anyone have any yummy and easy (and kid-friendly) ideas on what to do with it? How to cook it? I've googled and checkout out allrecipes.com and foodnetwork.com. I'd just like to also hear things that real people have made.

 I do Rack of lamb. leave the rack in tact and "lollipop" each bone down. cut small slits in the thickest part of the lollypop and insert a bit of goat cheese into each slit throughout the rack. rub the rack with EVOO and rub with rosemary salt and pepper. Sear in a HOT skillet, then roast in the oven until the perfect Medium pinkish red is achieved. its me and DH's favorit lamb recipe.

we make lamb frequently. Blade steaks- we season them with a bit of garlic, salt , pepper and a slight pinch of allspice. sear them on the grill then reduce the fire to cook tender or in a bit of olive oil on the stove . leg or shank, insert garlic cloves into slits in the muscle. rub with oil and salt pepper a bit of oregano. roast till 165 degrees in center. lamb stew meat-- simmer till tender. chill. skim fat. bring to boil again and add stew veggies. cook them till tender.

I only ever put it on a very hot grill.  I can't really eat it any other way.  Never liked it until we moved to South Africa and that's the way they served it where we were--didn't know what it was until after I had a whole bunch!!

So for rack of lamb, we just do the hot hot grill medium rare, little lamb lollipops. Kids just hold them like a drumstick. Rosemary, garlic and olive oil, similar to this.
