Super tender and tasty roast lamb shoulder

Today is the last day of Autumn, tomorrow Winter starts officially. When I woke up at about 4 am it was close to zero degrees Celsius. I went out for a walk and spent the time thinking of tonight’s roast lamb shoulder.

The meat should just melt in your mouth. I could have added some bacon pieces to the cauliflower and Brussels sprouts but you don’t want too much of a good thing.


So what else did I do today. Well after a walk and breakfast I went in to work to do something for tomorrow. In the afternoon I ironed and watched Star Trek The Next Generation episodes from season 5.

She was still warm. I knew someone in the Northern Territory who would take road kill and cook it for friends and family.

    1. I know, I thought I was used to seeing road kill in the Northern Territory. It’s so much worse in the Australian Captial Territory. On the soutside it’s common to see dead wombats and echidnas. So sad.
