Slow Cooked Leg of Lamb With Rosemary and Garlic

Slow Cooked Leg of Lamb

I write to you today for a number of reasons. 1) my kitchen smells simply divine from a leg of lamb slow cooked with rosemary and garlic from early this morning and the recipe, although maybe too late for Easter Dinner now, still needs to be shared. 2) because Lynas Food outlet have Spring sales on through March – April and you won’t want to miss out. 3) it’s Easter Sunday, I’m chilling with my dog on my lap, glass of red, belly full of lamb… and if I don’t distract myself, I know I will end up going back into the kitchen to nibble on the remainder of said lamb. I’ve already over-indulged myself on chocolate eggs!

A yummy Easter treat: Creme Egg Double Chocolate Muffins.

Creme Egg Double Chocolate Muffins

Last week Neil and I went to Scotland for a couple of days to visit my Sister and Brother-in-law. It was the first time in years that we got to go over, so we were very excited to see their new house and celebrate my Brother-in-law’s special birthday. Walking around Glasgow, the streets appeared familiar yet different; new shops had opened and some places we liked are sadly now closed. This story is a bit like the Cadbury’s Creme Egg; the recipe has changed, but somehow it’s still the same old familiar egg we recognise from past Easters as kids. Back then, I had a super sweet tooth like most kids, and had quite the collection of Disney stickers stuck on my school books from trips to the Dentist!
