Blessed is the lamb

With spices, rosemary from our garden, and olive oil, on a bed of root veg.  Plus home made dinner rolls rising.

Happy Easter to all, and keep in mind that the Feast is not only for the body, but also for the soul.  Maybe even mostly for the soul.
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine,
But a broken spirit drieth the bones.
- Proverbs 17:22

I assume you made sure it was Christian lamb and not Muslim halal lamb from cocost (look for the halal label on the back), most lamb from Australia and New Zealand is now ritually slaughtered to accommodate the Middle Eastern market and as most westerners are generally ignorant they dump the same on them.

Prop- is there some problem with eating halal meats that I am not aware of? I don't chock it up to ignorance so much as not giving a shit. I eat kosher foods allthe time, too. Not because I'm Jewish but because I couldnt care less.

Unless there is something icky about the halal process I'm unfamiliar with?

Goober no as this is from Oz or NZ and they will have high standards but it is a cruel form of animal slaughter (very few people follow the high standards laid down by Temple Grandin about making the process quick and painless for the animal) but every time you buy it a small percentage of the profits a halal tax) get sent to your local Muslim Brotherhood to promote their extremely tolerant brand of Islam and the occasional exploding person. This makes you someone who pays the Jizya. However it's your choice whom you support with your money. I boycott it on both grounds as I refuse to support religious maniacs who hate my entire culture and wish to destroy it.

Prop - thanks, and I did not know those things. I learn something new every day on this blog.
