I left one in the fridge for today but nobody had been to anywhere to get some mint.
Can you not grow your own? It's a devil to keep in check but you'll never be without mint sauce again, it's good with hummus as well- the leaves not the sauce.

My stepdaughter is the green fingered one and she did grow some. I even made some once but it went off after first use.

Admittedly that was when Lamb was ridiculously expensive and I wasn't really buying it, other than a rare small piece near it's best before date. Plus only two of us ate it then and now four of us do.

There have been a fair few reductions lately though and we got a bit carried away.

Stepdaughter just came home from work. Without looking at her as she appeared behind me, I held my hand out over my shoulder.

Why do you have your hand out she asks. I was expecting you to put something in it, says I.

One jar of mint sauce.

I just knew she'd come back with one.

Last night I dined on touski.

Great word, that. It's a contraction of "tout ce qui reste". Leftovers, in other words.

We're having a loud diner tonight. SLAM!

Shopping last week I bought a jar of mint sauce, completely forgetting my stepdaughter came home with one a couple of weeks earlier. So we have lots to use up now.

Hence today's roast.

It was magnificent and even more so when I added the mint sauce. I don't think I've had better lamb.

Looks amazing! In accordance with Canada's Food Guide I'm having something from the burger group, something from the fries group and something from the beer group. Missing (obviously) something from the excessively sweet group.
