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.

The meal was eclipsed by pudding!
