I must say, I am quite impressed with myself today. Look at that gorgeous leg of lamb!! I usually stick to cookies and bread and donuts, and the “real food” I post typically ends up being meat-free. But not today! Today meat, specifically lamb, is the star of the show. TheBetterHalf has never been happier.

And as impressed as I am with myself, I have to tell you that this meal was actually so easy to prepare! Boneless leg of lamb is really a simple dish to make.
