We don't often see Canadian lamb, some but not much, all of the frozen is Australian or NZ.

I love a lamb shank and I can get them fresh, but have to order them well in advance.

We have quite a big Siriyan presence here now and I have spotted a bit of goat meat in a smaller shop, I have often eaten it at weddings but I've never cooked it. I am going to see if I could get a reasonable cut of it and try it.
I nearly died when I saw the price of lamb in the north of England! I wandered into an Iceland one day and the legs of lamb had those metal security devices attached

Not that it's that cheap here in Australia either, which is quite odd considering that we have around 70 million sheep, the second highest number in the world after China. I buy a leg to roast about once a month, it's usually around $35 (AUD). I love lamb shanks too. And Irish stew. And those curly tailed lamb chops. Hell, I just love lamb and there's a few relatives already born that I'd happily trade for it

I made chilli for dinner tonight. I achieved the perfect amount of chilli - too mild for me and too hot for the husband

I like lamb, it's a rare treat I sometimes buy. Never seen fresh lamb in stores, just frozen and almost always from New Zealand, but maybe more specializes meat stores sell Canada sourced lamb.

The price of lamb is too high to ever be a staple, but we don't eat meat much in general, but of the meats generally available in store, lamb tops the list for me taste and texture wise, better than any beef or pork I have ever had.

I got tricked into eating deer once, not my cup of tea.

I made a venison curry once, it was nice but it was a bit dear.
