I can still remember the first time I tasted what is known as spring lamb. It was in a lamb stew, and it was delicious.

I bought a leg of lamb for Easter. The price tag on the lamb was $40, but I did some coupon wrangling and brought the price down to $20 for the lamb, mint jelly, and potatoes. But then I was too tired to cook on Easter, so I saved it for the Thursday afterwards when I had nothing to do all day.
Good thing. In the best of circumstances, my vegan wife hates the smell of roasting meat, and this one was a little smoky. The roast came out perfect, and then I self-cleaned the oven - she hates that smell, to.
So I've been having lamb all week, and it's terrific.

Mint jelly with lamb is excellent. As with Alexander Keith's beer, those who like it like it a lot.

When feeding the five thousand, I put out a variety of condiments in the expectation that half the company will loathe what the other half eagerly scoffs. De gustibus non est disputandum.

We had our Easter dinner yesterday a week late because my wife worked all weekend last week. Today I had leftovers made into a lamb stew that was even tastier than yesterday's meal.
Does anyone have an opinion on mint jelly with lamb? Some family members don't like it but my son won't eat lamb without it.

One of my undiagnosed passions is for inexpensive fried fish sandwiches. These days the cheap fish piece is pollock. My local supermarket has these fish sandwiches available at what I took to be odd times of the year.

Turns out it was for Lent. Oh ignoramus me! But the delicious patties have been hit and miss these days even in their season. For every three trips to find them I've had two failures. The Deli cooks seem to be ill informed as to the 'reason for the season' and their availability.

Since Edmund died, the chocolate content of my diet has declined steeply. He would always buy a large hollow Easter egg filled with chocolates (very expensive) along with, if not stopped, a Laura Secord cream egg on the side.

I had a Cadbury Fruit & Nut bar on Good Friday, thanks to my pal Alden.

Easter is for overeating chocolate, too.

As a non-believer it is just dinner on Sunday, but I do love lamb and have a leg in the freezer, cut into a half-dozen double portions (for a meal and for leftovers for one). I also have a recently made batch of hummus and some good locally made pita in the freezer. A side of Basmati rice, yogurt sauce, and steamed spinach and I'm good to go with dinner, even if it isn't holiday related.

Ramadan has a little over a week left. It's something I'm aware of when I shop at the local Halal grocery because most of the store's customers are cooking for the evenings after sunset. The general atmosphere is more festive, a higher energy level, though there is no outward sign (that I can see or read, at any rate).

At the local Winco (an employee-owned grocery chain) there were full carts in line on Friday night when I was shopping; I spoke with one young woman who was indeed preparing for the Easter meal. She said the eggs were at home already, stashed out of sight and she would put them out for the kids before she went to bed.

3 faiths? What about all the others? :-D

Passover comes in late April this year, and Muslims can’t eat until after sun-down in Ramadan. Not suitable for this Anglican.

That said, lamb is the appropriate festive dish for believers of all three faiths.

How about an ecumenical dinner of Hummus with ham and matzah balls?

"Un gigot qui pleure" -- I love that. It makes a mess of the upper oven rack, however; the evening ends with somebody scouring it in the laundry sink.

I'm having a small boned leg of lamb -- frozen, from New Zealand, like all lamb sold in Stratford, home of the Ontario Pork Council. Sigh. My friend Alden will come over to help me eat it on Sunday evening with a nice bottle of Niagara pinot noir.

Green beans, also frozen -- fresh ones will have travelled all the way from Mexico -- and roasted potatoes. New potatoes would be better but, like fresh beans, they aren't to be had in Stratford in March.

We usually do a weeping leg of lamb, You place a pan of sliced potatoes on the lower rack of the oven and put your lamb on the rack above. As it roasts the lamb will drip its juices onto the potatoes below. You will need to strt off but covering the taters with beef broth so they don't dry out waiting for the lamb to drip. We bard the leg and put garlic cloves in the holes and dress it with rosemary sprigs. Rounded off with a spring salad and homemade biscuits with Irish butter. People love the lamb but they just can't get enough of those potatoes.

This new thread is in the vein of some older threads,
which have compared Easter Dinners in years past.

I honestly don't know what's for dinner on my end,
although I'm curious.
