I enjoy cooking. It’s not as difficult of a task as most people think.
I made a fabulous lunch this weekend that anyone can assemble and impress friends and family.
While I was getting ready to start my day, I cooked a boneless leg of lamb that I picked up at Trader Joe’s. Since it comes frozen, remember to defrost the lamb by removing it from the freezer and putting it in the refrigerator a day before you plan to use it.
I stuffed the lamb with garlic and baked it on a bed of garlic and rosemary. (“Stuffing” just means poking holes in various parts of the meat and sticking an peeled garlic clove in the whole.) It took about 50 minutes to cook this particular leg of lamb at 350.
After the lamb cooled, I wrapped it in foil and put it in the refrigerator. Then I left for the day to do my errands: change the oil, do the week’s shopping, to the bank, and the like.
When I returned home for lunch, I sliced the cold lamb, and made a sandwich on toasted bread spread with Boursin cheese, and included spring greens and sliced avocado.
Serve this with a crisp white wine.
You’ll get lots of “wows” with this simple lunch.Powered by Sidelines
