UPDATE: It was awesome!
Tender, juicy, excellent taste especially with the garlic slivers stuffed in the meat (this part was easier than I thought it would be!) and the aroma floating through my house while it was cooking was tantalizing. Everybody kept asking "Is it done yet?"
I put halved baby yukon yellow potatoes in the pot with the lamb about 45 minutes before the lamb was done and they cooked beautifully, soaking up the herbs and lamb flavoring.
I made a huge tray of asparagus, mushrooms, onion, grape tomato sprinkled with olive oil, garlic and some rosemary (an herb used in the lamb). Delisch!
I didn't make a salad, I thought with the veggies there was enough food, and had fresh strawberries and ice cream for dessert.
Oh! and one of the best parts was that DD#2 had a client that morning and DD#1 went with her to get her hair done. While they were gone, DD#1's BFsam helped me with all the prep work. He knows his way around the kitchen . . . wonderful bonding experience.
Thank you all for helping me (and BFsam
) create a wonderful meal. All of your comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
P.S. I used regular fresh oregano instead of the greek oregano the lamb recipe called for . . . I was about to ask here what was the difference, but I googled instead.
