Slow roasted shoulder of lamb

I think I have a new Sunday ritual*. I’m becoming addicted to slowly roasting a shoulder of lamb each Sunday. The roasting meat fills my apartment with a gorgeous rich meaty aroma and my hunger builds with the smells.

Earlier in the day I went for a walk around Lake Ginninderra and shot a few photographs. I like how the wikipedia entry makes mention that water rats form part of the lake’s rich wildlife.
