Old Fashioned Pot Roast

Old Fashioned Pot Roast

After taking the dog for a walk in the crisp cool autumn air I sat down and browsed through my recipes trying to decide which one would be on the menu today…what says Fall better than an Old Fashioned Pot Roast?

Rosemary Roasted Leg of Lamb & Potatoes

Rosemary Roasted Leg of Lamb

As I was pondering what I would write today, remembering that it is Holy Thursday, my thoughts strayed to the fact that today marks the end of Lent and the beginning of the sacred “Triduum”, the three holiest days of the Christian faith. I thought of Jesus and his sacrifice for us as the sacrificial lamb and so for today’s post I made a Rosemary Roasted Leg of Lamb in honor of Him. I roasted potatoes along with the Lamb and it turned out beautiful… Continue reading
