And now back on to the topic of food. Hungry Male's cousin works for Silver Fern Farm's a New Zealand meat producer and I was able to buy some cheap lamb through her. The only issue now is that I'm am not entirely sure what to do with it. Even though there is something like 8 sheep for every person in New Zealand, lamb is priced waaaaaay out of my student budget. We also didn't really eat it much as a family when I was a bit younger as my vegetarian sister had a pet sheep and we would have never heard the end of it. Well sorry Rammstein, but your folk are awfully tasty.
I thought that with this week's recipe list, I would search the internet for some yummy ways to use my lamb.
The first cut that I have is some lamb stir-fry strips. I love balsamic vinegar, so I really like the look of this balsamic lamb stir-fry. It also looks really quick and easy to make which is a bonus.
There is some rogue bok-choy growing in my garden at the moment, so this ginger and honey lamb stir-fry would be a fantastic way to use it.
If I want to get a little bit fancier, this rolled spinach and feta lamb roast would make a great meal. Very greek too!
anglo-asian lamb salad from Nigella looks amazing (as all Nigella recipes do) or this Italian lamb salad looks like a great substantial salad for a lighter meal with some toasted bread.
