Lamb not Bacon

5 Mar

No this is not a painting by Francis Bacon.
This is my Sunday roast.
Two little charred lumps of lamb.

I had to use an apple corer to pull something edible out of these. The dog had the rest.

My husband roasted himself a chicken.

    Oh love what a shame I know how much you love lamb. If its any consolation I think I ate raw pollock last night. Not intentionally, it was in the oven for half an hour in a delia style foil tent. Think I got away with it, cheese sauce disguised it all. However my lovely husband was up at 6am shouting soup
    down the loo. Oh. Dear. Tx

      Oh dear, raw fish and shouting soup? You need to guest blog for me!

      That does remind me though, I do need to do a post on how I’ve made people ill in the past….
      Lots of love T

    Think that may have been over done a little ……….

    I made the other day, and forgot it was in the oven cooking, resulting in inedible burnt bread!

      Oh! James, what a shame.
      Being forgetful will make bad cooks even out of the best!

      Yes I confess I did forget about my little lamb fillets. Well sort of, I just kind of thought they needed a bit longer than they did and went and did something else…

      A timer next time – maybe for both of us?

      Thanks so much for reading xx

    Oh no what a shame! At least the dog was happy I suppose and good job you had a chicken hanging around!

      Ha ha my husband bought his chicken as he knew in advance he’d need it… He’s had too many of my ruined roasts.

      But yes you are right, the dog loves that I bugger up so much.

    Oh dear, oh dear. It is just so frustrating, when you realise something has gone catastrophically wrong, all for the want (or use) of something so simple as a timer. I’ve got to admit, I use my cooker timer throughout the day – not just for cooking with! LOL If I have to go out in 10 minutes, I’ll put it on just in case I’ve nodded off by then. *chuckle*

      Jenny! I LOVE the thought of you using a cooker timer to wake you up. That is the best use of it.

      Sadly I don’t know how to use mine, maybe if I learnt I wouldn’t end up with lamb like this?

      Thanks for reading xxx
