A log of actual meals, as I cook them, because otherwise I forget.

Easter Leg of Lamb
Following the post lamb roast from 2011. This is just us, so three carnivores and a vegetarian.
Really difficult to calculate how long to cook it for. Somewhere between 65 minutes and 120, so go figure, also we have a new, hotter oven.
Stabbed leg and inserted garlic slices last night, also juice of half a lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Today adding cooking on a bouquet of sage, rosemary, chives, marjoram and thyme.
Opened a bottle of red wine to breathe.
Cooked for 135 minutes - too long!
Served with new potatoes, carrots and broccoli.
The flavour was good but must remember to cook for less time.
