My loyalties switched, temporarily, from my tagine to my slow cooker.
I’m trying to correct that.
The cooking principles are actually somewhat similar. The slow cooker uses slow heat and a lid that is supposed to stay on to keep the moisture inside, which, in turn, keeps the food moist.
The conical shape of the top of a tagine collects … Continue reading.....
I looked in the freezer the other day and there was only one package of lamb left.
I was surprised. I was expecting it to last at least as long as the butternut squash.
I may have mentioned that one of the small details I miss about no longer being able to go to Spain to see our friend is … Continue reading.....
Remember we bought a whole lamb in September.
With a freezer full of meat I’ve been a little more daring with my cooking.
I was meandering through my cook books awhile back, as one does during a power outage, and ran across a recipe that went against everything I thought I knew.
It was for a stew that was cooked … Continue reading.....
This is Roast Leg of Lamb for Two…. sort of.
It was a perfect size for us to have a nice dinner with enough left over to make a ‘pie’ the next night.
When we got our lamb last August we had one leg left whole and made Roast Leg of Lamb for the family when they were here.
We … Continue reading.....

I don’t read … Continue reading.....

What a treat!
I made this last week.
Since I have learned how to properly cook white asparagus I have rarely deviated.
But I did with this….
Call it over-confidence, laziness, whatever you like but, luckily for me it worked.
It likely worked because it … Continue reading.....
I am being punished for all the many times I have bragged about my colds only lasting three days.
This is Day 6 and there is no hope in sight.
I do not take chastisement well.
I have, however, watched every episode of Somebody Feed Phil on Netflix.
Not really…. I’ve caught 15 minutes here, 5 minutes there, between naps. … Continue reading.....
Calling these lamb steaks is really not correct. They are slices from the bigger end of a leg of lamb, with the small leg bone in.
The French call them ‘leg cutlets’ or ‘leg slices’, neither term being one I really want to use.
I just wanted the Food Police to know that I know that I’m not right.
But … Continue reading.....
