Roasted Lamb and Potatoes

I guess Tonio Mendes is my favorite eater.  His appreciation of simple country dishes was acquired in Portugal where he was born and raised.  This lamb tajine is inspired by “Arni me Patates sto Fourno“, a rustic Greek dish that reminds me of my friend Magdalena each time I make it.  Tonio’s enthusiasm and delight at the table inspires my own 🙂

Because of the weather, the picnic table has been moved into the house’s vestibule whose walls and tiles are in the process of being restored, and repainted.  Can’t wait until the work is completed.  In the meantime, we bring the picnic table in and out between work hours.

I brushed the roast with a mixture of chopped garlic, fresh oregano, lemon juice salt and pepper and olive oil.


Lovely brussel sprouts with lardons and shallots.  Doesn’t get any better than this!

My portion with very rare lamb slices and roasted onion wedges.   Mmmm good!
