Leg of Lamb for Christmas Dinner

Since I had to work the entire week of Christmas, Glen and I had our celebration on the 28th.  This year we cooked up a leg of lamb, and it was delicious.

Image

We had the butcher debone and butterfly the leg.  We made a past of garlic, chopped rosemary, salt and pepper that we spread on the inside and outside of the leg.

Image

We rolled it up and tied it with pretty bows 🙂

Image

We had sauteed green beans….

Image

The lamb leg was roasted on potatoes and garlic. 

Image

It was a yummy, yummy dinner!

Tradition

Yesterday my good friends and I went out to do our Christmas girls day out.  We always try to go to a restaurant that we have never been to.  This year we went to O’Dowd’s Little Dublin down on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City.    We got there and ordered an appetizer of spinach artichoke dip and a round of beer. 

Image

Ila and Vickie opted for a nice lite Irish Lager.

Image

I, on the other hand, ordered a nice thick stout.

Image

Image

The atmosphere was nice and inviting. 

Image

I ordered the grilled salmon boxty.  It was so tasty!  The salmon was grilled perfectly, and the mashed potatoes…..well, I can never say anything bad about mashed potatoes!

Image

Our waitress wasn’t as personable as we are used to.  We usually have the wait staff in the picture with us, however this year we were just glad she was willing to take our picture.

Kitty Burrito

We keep the temperature in the house at a steady 70 degrees.  Even though it isn’t cold, Lilly still demands to be wrapped up in a blanket like a kitty burrito.

Image

She looks quite content 🙂

Shooting Deer Prompts New Freezer

Image

This is the splendid new freezer that I bought. 

Image

Here it is loaded up with the deer that Glen shot.  Now that is a good looking freezer!

Are you tired?

Scaredy Cat

Lilly was very skeptical about her cat nip toy. Petey made sure she stayed skeptical.

Dog Noses

Image

This is Miss Lucy’s nose.  Interesting fact about a dog nose…..a print of a dogs nose can be used to identify them just like a persons fingerprint.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
