Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Roast Lamb

For our Easter dinner, I adapted this recipe for roast lamb. John prefers his meat on the pink side; but you could easily roast it longer.


Roast Lamb

In a large freezer bag, combine:  2 cups plain Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon rosemary leaves, 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, 4 cloves of garlic (pressed), and the zest of 2 lemons.  Add one boneless lamb roast, and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

The next day, combine 1/4 cup olive oil, 1 tablespoon salt, 1 tablespoon pepper, 1 tablespoon rosemary leaves, 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, 4 cloves of garlic, and the zest of 2 lemons.  Mix well with an immersion blender.  

Put roast in baking pan, and spread olive oil mixture on top.  Cook at 325 degrees for 20-30 minutes per pound, depending on your pinkness preference. 
Thanks for my family, who are free with compliments and help.  (And that's no April Fool's joke!)

  2. That looks and sounds really good, although I look at lamb a little differently now that I've been to my brother's farm to hold a bunch of them. I'm not going to go vegetarian or anything, but it will be a while before I eat lamb again. Give me a few months and I just may try it.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
