My last trip to the grocers I saw something that is rare (at least here, this time of year) – a butterflied leg of lamb! In a moment of self-indulgence along with a few fleeting memories, I had to purchase same.

Grandmother made roasted leg of lamb often – served with mint jelly, and cooked SO 'well done' that you could hardly taste anything other than that jelly. But it's a memory – so let's accept that – and make it better.

I started with a marinade – balsamic vinegar, rosemary, lots of garlic, cumin, coriander, s&p... honestly, I got this off the package of lamb, and just adjusted the measurements to my pleasing. Got called into work early, and of course stayed late – so I marinated about 10 hours, not the 2-4 that was recommended...

Grilled on med-lo for about 40 minutes, only flipping once...

Delightfully delicious dinner, with the fanned potatoes and roasted broccoli being done in the toaster oven? More about those later...

Wish you were here to enjoy!!
