In Other News–18 November 2014

2 min read


Many people can’t stand it, but I’m rather fond of lamb. Rich, fatty and delicious, it’s a pungent, heady meat, and I can’t get enough of the stuff. As far as I’m concerned, it’s the Greeks who do lamb best,with their Kleftiko. Lamb kleftiko is a rustic, traditional Greek (Cypriot?) recipe made with super slow cooked lamb,  marinated in a blend of garlic, olive oil and lemon juice.

Literally meaning “stolen” lamb, tradition says that the name comes from that fact that raiders would steal lambs or goats and cook them in underground ovens to both seal the flavour, and avoid getting outed by the smell of it cooking. Modern Kleftiko is slowly cooked in parchment or foil, leaving you with a juicy and tender bit of lamb knuckle, shank or shoulder. Yum!

Here’s the news we didn’t post because dude, where’s my lamb?

        Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go? to tech tab for work detail

    We may not agree completely on Altered Beast but my goodness that lamb looks tasty. I swear, it’s folly to put in a extra hour or two after work on Tuesdays and I blame the ION headers for this.

      What does putting an hour or two extra after work have to with the tasty Lamb?

      Order in from the nearest Greek place?

      Huge fan of Lamb. You can eat whatever you like, may there be more of you out there! Keeps prices down for the rest of us
