really getting wintery over here now.snow forecast for tuesday & some wag on the beeb was merrily informing me,as i drove over to chester to visit mum,that we are in for a "canadian" winter with relentless freezing temps & snow for three months...grrrrrrrreat!!having said that,i really love getting out in that type of weather.brilliant over in north wales too,snow covered fields surrounding the house & logs crackling on the fire...nice!!.it's the depressingly damp,dismal,drizzly british winters that i hate!!any road up,on a cheerier note,a taste of the sunny med with a greek/cypriot type theme:
slow cooked boned/rolled welsh lamb shoulder with cyprus potatoes,sweet red onions & ramiro red peppers.montepulciano d'abruzzo smoother than a baby's bum.oh yeah,woulda posted this last night but dozed off watching "the real housewives of beverly hills"ahh well,!!

Harry, is preparing the lamb something you do yourself (boning and rolling)?
I'm not much of a lamb eater, but I don't recall seeing anything like that in the butcher's counter either. Maybe they'll do it if asked.

It was one of those days that no one was home together so dinner was a pot of turkey soup and a loaf of french bread that you could grab when you had a moment. I also put together a big fruit plate for us to grab and go. We had red grapes, pomegranate (.89 each!!), orange slices and some lovely blackberries.

yes i do pac.shoulder is one of the easier joints to bone imo as you are really only dealing with one major bone...the blade,which usually has the shoulder shank attached.i cut those off & freeze them.they're fab in tagines,curries & stews etc.on this occasion it was already boned,rolled & neatly packaged in the pre pack meat aisle.
can't believe that you & i were brought up on andy capp & have just had a straight faced conversation about boning & rolling!.good job it wasn't boned,rolled AND stuffed eh matey??......pause for benny hill speeded up chase music??!!!
