I finally cooked that leg of lamb. I followed the recipe here: Farmgirl Fare: Recipe: Slow Roasted Greek Style Leg of Lamb with Lemon, Oregano, Potatoes, and Swiss Chard. I had beet greens, so I substituted those for the Swiss chard. The beet greens were okay. The potatoes were good, but a bit too lemony and I never fished out the garlic, because by the time the potatoes were coming out of the oven, I was just too busy and they were hiding.

The lamb was good enough that I stuffed myself, but it isn't the ultimate leg of lamb recipe I'm looking for.



We had the rest of the strawberry mousse from yesterday for dessert.

Chili Lime Sweet Potatoes

Give them a try. I think they're out of this world.
Thanks Steve, I may have to give these a try! A great endorsement if you have them that often.

The recipe sounds great Steve! I too grew up with the marshmallow goo sweet potatoes. Can't stand them! I do like savory sweet potatoes and usually just have them with salt, pepper and butter, but I like the sound of your recipe!

Thanks Steve. It was pretty good. If I make it again I won't bother with the beet greens/Swiss Chard. They stole the little bit of juice that was left in the pan. I will deglaze the pan with a little bit of wine and have du jus for the lamb. It wasn't dry, but it could have used a bit of jus. It was fall-off-the bone tender.

Nope, don't do gyro sandwiches. I might do some sandwiches in pita (It can't be a gyro if it wasn't cooked on something that rotates. ) Thanks for the idea. I should start some yogourt cheese tonight, so I can make some tzatziki.

I'm thinking shepherd's pie tomorrow.

I freeze fat free, salt free beans that I cook in the PC, either in cooking liquid or drained. I have no problem with them. I also freeze Chili with no problems.

Those sweet potatoes sound great! In South Africa the sweet potatoes have purple skins and the flesh is white and only slightly sweet.
Have you ever had the white ones? Do the orange ones taste different?

No brainer there! How does broiled differ from roasted? I consider my PR roasted. And mashed potatoes or baked for sure. You should consider Yorkshire pudding with that, one of my favorite PR side dishes.
