Slow Cooked Lamb: Update

The star of the show:  Slow Cooked Lamb with Lemon and Oregano
Well, no one said it would be easy.  And it certainly wasn't quick either, but Friday's slow cooked lamb was well worth the time and the effort.

24 hours of marinating time and 4 1/2 hours in the oven later, I served my delicious slow cooked lamb dish to rave reviews.  It was tender and juicy, and the potatoes were lemony and delicious.  I had enough for an army and was just sorry that I hadn't invited everyone I have ever met over for dinner.  It was that good.

But here's the thing.  This dish is an event and probably worth saving for guests.  You might as well make a big leg of lamb if you're going to go to the trouble.  And then invite everyone you know over for dinner and have a party.  It's as good a reason as any to get everyone together.

So, just make sure to read the directions in advance, set aside the time, and then just go for it.
