So, now we're on the cooking with lamb learning curve. Spouse chose to have the trim pieces ground instead of chunked for stew, so no delicious curry recipes like The Mayor posted over on the FB with lamb stew meat.

On the other hand...there are a bajillion versions of kofta out there and Spouse broke one out last night that was a hit.



Short version:

Ground lamb, mixed with raisins, pine nuts and chopped onion rolled into 1 ounce meatballs.

Bake for 15 minutes, then top with diced tomatoes, onion and seasonings, bake for another 20.

Served over basmati rice, side of fresh spinach cooked with raisins, pine nuts, onion as well.

Holy crapping crackers, that lamb be good, yo.

Curry ground lamb is a thing, though. Look up a recipe for keema curry.

It is definitely good that all my vegetarian friends have me eating more vegetables than I used to, but I need just ONE close bud who wants to come over and eat my big pot of korean shredded pork.

So I picked out one of the turkeys for Thanksgiving at the family's house and slaughtered him off the weekend before the holiday. The birds aren't quite done growing, but the largest male cleaned out at 16 pounds, so he made a nice sized bird for about 15 people.

On Thursday I got up at 5 AM and got everything going and had him all smoked up delicious by 11:30,



So I put him in a baking bag to keep some heat in and laid him in a large casserole dish and took him off to the relatives house. It worked out great, the bird was good and there was plenty.

Only one hitch, no leftovers made it home with us, they all got claimed by other people. It's hard to bitch when they tell you how good it was (and you have 12 more in the pen at home).

Still, I wound up getting out the last bag of thighs and legs from last years birds and baking those up and making some stuffing and gravy just so we could have turkey 'leftovers'.

I have done that before--made my own turkey at home after Thanksgiving due to lack of leftovers.

Our Thanksgiving was pretty small this year. Did a turkey breast and just a few sides. There has since been turkey pot pie and turkey minestrone, plus the usual sandwiches and whatnot. Just about kicked at this point. I have a recipe for braised turkey legs that I am debating doing next weekend, but the rest of the family is probably turkeyed out at this point.

Just a quick note: cooking with lamb is really great.

Spouse mixed up a nice kofta blend that I turned into little meatballs, then those got cooked into a nice tagine.

I need to take more pictures, I suppose, but it got vaporized too quick.
