Pescetarian doesn't sound too bad. I probably wouldn't mind that sort of lifestyle. Well, I could probably do vegetarianism as well if I chose.

I slow roasted my lamb last night. Stayed up until 1:30am to give myself a good 6 hour cook.

IMAGE INTENSIVE WARNING!!!

Image
The leg of lamb marinated for 48 hours in my patented herbal seasoning recipe.

Image
It was 1:30am and 'bah, bah' went the lamb...

Image
The texture ended up exactly as I wanted it! (I had to pull the shank off because the meat became so tender that it was hanging on by a tendon, literally)

Image
Buttery and melts in the mouth, gotta love it.

Image
The outside has a nice subtle crisp.

I am posting my twin chocolate pecan pies in the dessert thread.

I made, quite possibly, my best dish of potato salad Saturday night for a dinner for a close friend.

Diced some red onions in it for an extra kick. I learned that boiling the potatoes with the salt instead of adding the salt after boiling the potatoes, not only better flavors the potato but it makes for a better taste once it sets overnight.

: O What's that red seasoning on top of it? It looks good!!!!

Oh, and I verified twice over best pancake recipe I've ever made!!!

Mind you, this also depends on personal taste. My younger sister likes thin crepe-like pancakes so she wasn't a fan of this.

But it mad these gorgeous delicious thick fluffy soft pancakes!!

Yep, that's exactly what it is and thanks GuoBia.

I made the best baked chicken, according to my wife, I've ever made over the weekend. I made an Ethopian themed Ginger Curry baked chicken. I'll post some pics a little later that I saved on my BB.

I made Ginger Curry chicken again upon my wife's request. After my first experiment, this second batch came out more flavorful.

I also had the best tasting center-cut lamb chops I've ever tasted at Carrabba's yesterday. And that mint sauce was just awesome.

With Pesach having had come last Friday, I made roasted lamb. This time, I was out of one of my key ingredients to my herb-roasted lamb recipe - curry. :shock: There were no worries on my part as I brazenly substituted it with cumin and threw in some ginger. Needless to say, my Indian-style Rosemary Herb-Roasted Lamb was the talk of the house the rest of the night and, to date, is the best lamb dish I have ever made.

Image

Basically, I took some fresh rosemary we have growing outside and stuffed it into the leg of lamb. I also used my cumin ginger herb rub and sealed it in plastic wrap to sit for about 16 hours.

Image

Image

I love using the broiler after you cook something at about 250 degrees for about 5-6 hours. Crispy outside and tender inside.

Image

My wife made the unleavened bread drizzled with natural honey.

Image

I ate about 3-4 servings! :oops: :lol:

Zhuanyong, I am now officially jealous of Passover at your house. I've just been playing with chicken recipes so far; I'm planning to attempt lamb chops, but that's pretty much all my grad student budget will allow.

How did your wife make the matzah? Did she use a normal oven?
