My sister and her family are joining us for Easter dinner this year. I broke down and bought a leg of lamb. Yum! We did a sample run on Thursday night to make sure this is what we wanted to do. We used the Harvest Lamb Roast recipe that I posted earlier (it works with a shoulder roast, but was definitely better with the leg of lamb). The sides will be different for the actual day, but here’s how it turned out:
On Thursday, Bryan wanted a more “traditional” dinner (aka meat, rice, and veggies), so we had the lamb with Creamed Corn, Collard Greens with Bacon, and Rice. For Easter, we will be having Roasted Purple Yams, Onion, and Carrots (roasted with the lamb), Sauteed Asparagus, and little cupcakes that we’re going to let the boys decorate to look like baby chickens! So much fun! Check out the concept from Martha Stewart Living here (picture below courtesy of Martha Stewart Living).
