Today is...
National Roast Leg of Lamb Day!
People have been eating lamb for more than 10,000 years. During the Middle Ages, farmers learned that sheep were the most productive livestock. These animals supplied wool for clothing, skins for parchment, milk for butter and cheese, and hearty flavorful meat.
You can cook lamb a variety of different ways, but roasting is one of the most popular methods. This dish pairs beautifully with seasonings like rosemary, oregano, thyme, or lemon zest. For something extra special, make a stuffed leg of lamb or prepare a succulent sauce to serve on top!
To celebrate National Roast Leg of Lamb Day, cook up a traditional roast dinner tonight with lamb as the main course. Bon app├ętit!
