What's for Dinner? #137 - Easter Edition [old]

LindaWhit | Apr 8, 2012 08:37 AM

I just realized that the previous thread is well over 325, so I thought I'd start a new one here (hopefully people will see the post directing them here).

I'll repeat what I posted over <<<----- there in response to Harters' Easter post to start this one off:

I must be British then, as I'm having lamb as well, Harters. I am just a bit British, however; I'm more Irish than Brit. So I do hope you'll forgive me my heritage. :-)

I've got a half semi-boneless leg of lamb (never did understand the "semi-boneless" phrasing!), that is going to marinate most of the day in olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, minced rosemary, and salt and pepper and then go into the oven for roasting to medium-rare. I *might* glaze it with pomegranate molasses towards the end; but then again, I might not. Especially since I'll be making a pan gravy to drizzle on top.

Sides will be a blend of mashed parsnips (I got two from my co-worker's CSA this week) and mashed Yukon Gold potatoes (also from her CSA). I'll whomp those up with my potato masher, blend in some butter, milk, sour cream and chives. Also will have roasted asparagus drizzled with a tiny bit of balsamic and sprinkled with chopped pistachios.

If I get ambitious, I'll be making ANZAC biscuits today, but I've got lots to do around the house, and since nothing got done yesterday, I'm going to try and focus on the "other" stuff vs. baking. We'll see if I manage to get to either. :-)

A very happy Easter to those who celebrate.

And if you don't celebrate Easter (I don't - I just love lamb tho!) - what's on your table today?
