Lamb Roast

I had the whole family at table to-night for a celebratory dinner: a roasted leg of lamb (about 5 pounds' weight), slow-cooked till meltingly tender and falling off the bone, served with gravy, mint sauce, roast potatoes and pumpkin, cauliflower with cheese sauce, and zucchini with tomatoes (the latter fresh from the garden).  I had a beer while cooking...  And dessert was peaches poached in syrup with vanilla and whisky.

The simple things in life are often the best.
