Tuesday's lunch was made with wonderful lamb prepared by hubby Jamison, an awesome, intuitive cook with a knack for combining flavors with a Mediterranean-meets-Silk Road spice twist. This weekend a lovely leg of lamb with a rich, fragrant marinade of fruit and spices was on the menu!
Here, green apples and peaches marinate in red wine with whole cloves, star anise, vanilla bean, coriander, onion, and dates. The leg of lamb was added to absorb the exotic flavors for a few hours. Next, everything was roasted in a copper casserole until the lamb was medium rare.
And at home, the peach daylily is in bloom...
Have a very good Wednesday, bento friends!
