A connection that too few people make in any conscious way.
I wish I didn't love lamb (the cooked kind) quite so much!
That was great, Friko!
i will take the second one....smiles...you trying to make me feel bad?we have to respect where our foodcomes from
Oh dear ! I'm afraid I do like eating lamb shanks and wearing woolly jumpers .
how could you
Oh dear, that is a real story of lamb shanks.
Facing the facts.
My brother grows them on herbal ditches so that their flesh is infused with rosemary and thyme.Seriously.XOWWW
Cold! But true. We had sheep when I was a child and my brother now raises beef so I've had no illusions about where my food comes from for a very long time
I am shielding Monty's eyes from this post.....luckily the other lambs are outside and cannot be alerted....
A before-and-after-pic. Very nice.
Simple honesty from the countryside! Nicely done.Aloha
Someone gave us some venison today. I've never eaten it and don't think I can. Not when the deer come to be fed in my yard every day. Frank has no such reservations though.
Hi Friko - my uncle's favourite ... always lamb shanks, if not then ham, eggs and chips - very English fare .. and English lamb is so good .. Cheers Hilary
I'll take em both - I grew up on a farm, so you raise some to eat, some to sell some to become pets that stay with you always. Looks great, tastes great. Nice Photos :)
Poor little lambs!
One of my brothers is a much better cook, and baker, than I am. Think you will remember my mentioning him? Anyhow, he recently told me during one of our regular phone calls, about a delicious lamb stew he'd made. I admit that I flinched just a bit at that, but then got a grip on myself, and wished that I could have had a taste of that delicious stew.(I can still love the view of those lambs on the green green field.)xo
Oh, dear. You're ruining this dish for me…;)
Love the humour, Friko. Or maybe it's not humour, just facing the facts.
There's a plate that would have made dinner an easy decision tonight....looks better than the fish I selected.
I'm not a fan of lamb, preferring chicken or beef, but that plate does look yummy.
Well, another reason to not eat lamb, even tho it looks so delicious.
Love the lambs. The shanks, not so much! But they look awfully delish in your photo!
Nothing better than a lamb shank, when that meat just falls of the bone!Pity lambs are so cute. I wrestle with this dilemma a lot. Can't find a happy medium so I eat with guilt, maybe that is the happy medium.Enjoy.DiX
Friko, love your sense of humor!One says ' I don't love sheep' Another one answers:' You just don't know to cook it'
I never eat lamb again !!!
Lamb shanks are one of my all time favourite meals (with rich gravy and mashed spuds of course!)
My grandmother was a true Welsh woman. She loved lamb shanks. She loved lamb for Easter. I never acquired the taste. I am afraid I am very untrue to my roots in that way.
Comments are good, I like to know what you think of my posts. I know you'll keep it civil.
