Lamb Ideas for Easter Dinner

We have hosted our share of animals here on the farm over the years, but by far some of the most interesting were our sheep. Peggy has a dark sense of humor, and when she decided to raise sheep for easter one year, she came up with the most wicked names. 

Please meet "Bob" (shish kabob) 
and meet "Stew" (lamb stew) 

These fun little guys had their pen moved around The Lavender Apple property and happily grazed on our grass and saved us a little time in mowing each week. Wrangling them so we could move the pen was not an easy task. 

Lamb is often a dish we think of at easter time for its obvious significance. Peggy has crafted some amazing lamb dishes over the years, all of which have been shared here on the blog. Here are our two favorites: 

Lamb Stew with Dried Plums

Moroccan Lavender Kebabs

Bob and Stew were wonderful friends and became a wonderful dinner. Such is life on the farm. We appreciate all the earth gives us and hopefully we give back to it. What are your dinner plans this Easter?
