Leg of lamb, boned and opened out. Rubbed well with garlic and rosemary paste and left in a polybag for a couple of hours.
Barbecued with lid shut and LOTS of soaked rosemary and sage cuttings stuffed in to smoke like crazy. Cook skin side down until thickest parts are 65C. Leave to rest for 10 mins before serving with warm buttered Charlotte spuds, sweet cabbage coleslaw and pea and mint purée.
There's always time for one more.

No - you caught me out, that's what I did for Friday! I love when folks come round, it's an excuse to cook.

A good time was enjoyed after the rigours of Lent and the business of Easter. :thumbup:

Messed up, big-time.

Bought some fresh pasta at the local market. One packet each of gnocchi filled with walnut and gorgonzola, and gnocchi filled with asparagus ... or so I thought.

A bit of olio and aglio, a couple of sage leaves ... and about two minutes later I discovered that instead of asparagus I had purchased gnocchi filled with nutella.

Not the ideal combination. Trust me.
