Worthy Is The Lamb

…that was slain so I can eats him!

Thank you, Oh Bountiful Provider, for the Glorious land of Australia and all the cute, fluffy, wooly and oh-so-tasty creatures of Your Munificence that dwell therein


look at these bonesies! So nummy!


now you can easily slip the fileting knife betwixt the little rib segments you see above and get eight LambiPops thusly


now you do need to trim the excess bits off of the ribs. It’s not that complicated, especially if one’s kitchen comes equipped with a Trimmings Dispose-All Unit


You do have one of these, don’t you? Have can you possibly exist without one?

Anyhoo, you don’t need to be too exact on all the little scraps and such, as the grill will clean them bones up just fine


then toss those LambiPops into a gallon-sized ziplock with red wine, capers, garlic, rosemary, and just a little salt and pepper


then into the fridge to marinate for a few hours, flipping every hour or so

they cook on the grill very quickly (and you don’t want them past at most medium anyway)


and serve them up with whatever version of mashed potatoes you’re in the mood for and some steamed asparagus and Life, My Friends, is pretty good.

For dessert, I highly recommend a trip to your local orchard for some fresh made PAH


apple/cranberry in this case in a crust to DIE FOR washed down with several drams of hooch


from a little distillery in an area that THS used to frequent many many moons ago in her Moon-shining days.

I, of course, would never make illicit runs across the border to take advantage of differences in ages of legality to buy such things.

    And what a HANDSOME Trimmings Dispose-All Unit he is! My TDAU is beige but has the same piercing “get in my belly” stare…

    Mr. B, far be it from me to take issue with anything culinary, however, the only alteration I would make to your wonderful lamb plate would be to use USA lamb over Australian. Less gamey and certainly more fresh. I’ll let you in on a little secret. The best lamb in the world is from the province of Ontario, Canada. You will most definitely taste the difference as compared to the down under stuff. You’ve got me thinking lamb for the weekend.

    That does look yummy.

    Mary had a little lamb
    Her father shot it dead.
    Now it goes to school with her,
    Between two hunks of bread.

    The way I heard it was:
    Mary had a little lamb
    its fleece was white as snow.
    And everywhere that Mary went,
    the lamb was sure to go.
    But then the price of meat went up
    which did not very much please her.
    Tonight she’s having leg of lamb.
    The rest is in the freezer.

    When I was a little girl my dad would recite this version, which never failed to make me laugh:

    Mary had a little lamb
    Its fleece was black as ink.
    It chewed the paper off the wall
    And spit it in the sink.

    A dear friend of mine in HS raised sheep. She had three whose names were Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

    Next time you’re at Wemrock, swing on by and have a libation
    or two at Stately Sad Old Goth Manor, we’re only scant minutes

    Ow! Ow! Quit twisting my arm like that, gregor!
