Whole Foods had some beautiful, boned legs of lamb recently and I thought about the different recipes I might make. I don’t make a big roast any more as there are not enough people to eat it. I thought about a curry recipe I wanted to try, maybe an Irish stew and since it’s still … Continue reading

I just love these baby carrots which are perfect for grilling in just 10-15 minutes. I found some seeds from the Chas. C. Hart Seed Co. in Connecticut. Only 3-1/2 to 4-inches long and 3/4-inch around. Maybe a fall crop… In the meantime I will buy these sweet little veggies.
