Lamb Number One is this beautiful rack of lamb. A splurge but it was just the two of us this Easter and a ham would be too much. A leg of lamb would not be much better. But a rack -- perfect for two people. Fixed the Barefoot Contessa way with a marinade of Dijon, rosemary, garlic and a wee bit of Balsamic and then roasted at 450 for 22 minutes.
Real garlic mashed potatoes and some fresh roasted asparagus accompanied the first lamb of Easter.
The second lamb was a cake. Not made by me but bought at a bakery in the city. It came complete with decoration except for the pansy which was from the garden.
This lamb, along with the dyed eggs made the centerpiece for Easter dinner for the two of us.
And when we sat down to eat -- both lambs were on the table at the same time. Along with a bottle of Penfolds chardonnay. Husband Jim's choice to accompany the first lamb. Coffee accompanied the second one.
