Braised Lamb with Creamy Polenta

Braised Lamb with Creamy Polenta

Growing up in England my Mum cooked a traditional Roast Lamb with Mint Sauce dinner at least one sunday out of the month, every month, and I always loved it. Then as I started learning how to cook in America, I realized that people probably don’t eat a lot of lamb out here because it’s really expensive–and not readily available all year round like it is back home. In fact–I have never found it at any grocery store in tricities, except Costco at Easter time, so whenever it comes out in the Spring, I always have to make as many delicious things as I can with it, before it goes again for another year! So far I have tried Roasted Leg of Lamb, herb crusted Lamb Chops, traditional lamb gyros, and rack of lamb–so next up, I really wanted to have a go at making braised lamb shanks, and I knew exactly what to serve them with.

Easter Chick & Mini Bunny Cookies

Easter Chick & Mini Bunny Cookies

I know Easter has already passed and i’m totally not on the ball — {as usual} but I thought i’d post up these cute Bunny & Chick Easter cookies I made over the weekend. I gave some away to my 11 year old primary girls at church and they LOVED them! Then we took some on our little family picnic where we had an Easter egg hunt down by the river. It was such a beautiful day–but I will post more about later, because I am adding a NEW TAB, under “Mattawa Life!” I know, it’s about time, and i’m pretty excited about it! So, just because I have even more posts to make than usual–i’m going to keep this one short and sweet, and cheat by sending a link to this recipe!
