I wanted to get my cardio session out of the way early because I have a TON of review comics and writing to do. I wasn’t doing any ARC reading during Camp NaNoWriMo so I need to get to them before they expire.
But I did cook something cool.
Butcher Box (not sponsored) has fun cuts of meat sometimes and I’ve never cooked a lamb leg before. I marinated it in crushed garlic, olive oil, lemon zest, dill, oregano, rosemary, and the juice of that same lemon. When the meat was almost done, I poured the rice in to cook in the juices. It turned out amazing! The lemon flavor is so nice, not bitter at all. I was worried about the marinating time with the lemon but I didn’t want the lemon to go bad and go to waste. I took a portion in with me for lunch and it reheated just fine in the microwave.
Now, I won’t be cooking this often since everything is so expensive now but I would totally make this for a holiday. Unless I suddenly sell bajillions of books or I can get some lamb on sale. One thing I learned from this is I need a mortar and pestle for food. I have one for witchy things but it would have come in handy making this marinade. It was a pain to smash the garlic and herbs together without it.
