Parents had an issue....dinner reworked itself into pulled pork burritos and tacos for men and an extra large bowl of spag squash, asparagus, coconut oil salt and pepper for me.

I have duly noted this and will keep it in mind.....

I really should learn to do 2 things. First is go to bed at a reasonable time. It is leaning towards midnight and well, here I am. Second, I should learn to think things through before speaking or typing. I have the feeling that is going to bite me one day and leave me quite a sore butt. :lol:

I got ambitious enough after a nap to actually cook something. Sort of. I had some chicken thighs in the fridge and just did the Bisquick oven fried chicken thing with them. It wasn't bad but needed way way more flavor added. I'll have to try harder next time.

Ok...this sounded gross - yet when I went to turn my large pot of broth into carrot/garlic soup/sauce and realized I forgot to buy carrots...this post had stuck in my mind so I added sweet potatoes to my minuscule carrot supply -- mistakes often yield the best results :) Thanks Paul!

Ha Ha, I suppose it does wierd. The flourless black bean chocolate brownies work, so I figured this combo would work too. Encore today but Daiya cheese like shreds instead of chocolate chips. Not bad again. Your carrot sweet tater soup sounds good Lisa! :)

I havent eaten meat in awhle but all this talk of lamb reminded me how much my body likes lamb.

I could not find any ground lamb so I picked up some lamb shoulder cuts and put it in the crock pot. ( the only way I can eat meat if it is not ground up is to slow cook it untill it falls apart )

To go with it ,I am thinking some rice sauteed with red onion in olive oil

I had lamb once. It was waaaay to greasy/rich for my tastes.

I love lamb. Bear? Now there is greasy gross animal. Blech, my dad can keep those to himself if he shoots another. Yuck! I agree that elk is good, moose too.

I loved Lamb until one of my dogs absolutely freaked on the BBQ like we were cooking his best friend -- was so bad we had to pull the lamb chops off the q and finish in the house -- that was years ago and I haven't purchased lamb in years. Think maybe it is time for a leg o' lamb for New Year's or maybe a trip down under - that sounds fun -- silly road trip -- well -- silly plane ride ;)

Forgot to post dinner

We were out at a restaurant with my folks, sis and my men after a attending an fun play this afternoon - 'A Christmas Carol' set as a 1940s Radio Broadcast -- then Mexican in Old Town. Made yummy enchiladas for one son, other knew he would order "safely" off the menu and I had my normal fare with a nice large glass of vino -- Margaritas for everyone else of age - one day that'll be me too :)

We have lamb often and I always trim as much visible fat off that I possibly can. It is definitely true that it is also in the preparation! :)

Juniper and Apple Cider (et. al.) Brined Roast Leg of Pork with Maple Bourbon Glaze

Rosemary and Thyme Roasted Baby Potatoes

Honey Cardamom Glazed Carrots

Mixed Greens and Raw Shaved Asparagus with Pecorino, Toasted Hazelnuts, Crispy Capers and Tomato Pomegranate Molasses

Creamed Peas and Baby Onions

Chocolate Pots de Creme with Cacao Beans

WHEW! I am in serious pain. We have my husband's family over this weekend. I thought it would help doing lots in advance but as I do every single thing from scratch from seasoning blends to mustards to all it really, really took its toll on my poor body. So many things have many components which I love - just not today. :(

Seriously. Massage tomorrow! That's an order. :). x x

I agree.

Lamb is delicious and one of my favorite meats. I have never found it to be

all that greasy or fatty or dry ...just MHO. Many people complain it is "'too dry".

That's because all too often, it is cooked to within an inch of its life.

It should be cooked rare./medium rare.

Lamb can be very succulent.... if prepared properly

Lamb shanks done properly--should make anyone swoon with delight and the meat should fall right off the bone.

But we all have our own tastes/likes. I LOVE it ....and the hubs...well, meh, not so much.

Like any meats ...or fish or poultry..I think it's all in the preparation.... and in our taste buds. :)
