A Journal of one Mom's attempt to feed three small boys and one very hungry husband in a reasonably healthy and not too expensive way.
Easter Dinner- Roast Lamb
So Easter dinner was the traditional leg of lamb. Usually, I smother the thing is mashed garlic, olive oil and Herbs de Provence. This time out, I had a ton of pre-chopped onions which were stinking up my kitchen something fierce so I added them to a bunch of parsley with some lemon and olive oil. It seemed too thin; pistachio nuts went into the food processor to give me the pesto above.
On a 12lb (bone in) leg of lamb, I used approximately 1 cup of this sauce and just spread it everywhere with my hands. Roasted the lamb at 180 for roughly two hours. It cooked very fast, much faster than I expected, so I wonder a bit if my oven is not correct any more.
The onion parsley mix is tasty, but the meat still needed salt.
