a mid winter menu that is easy to prepare and tastes amazing, the only things this menu asks of you is a long cooking time.  But you do not have to fuss- the lamb goes in the oven and roasts for 4 hours to become tender and juicy.

For the starter, you can roast your own beets or use ready made which are just a good in this winter salad.  And if making the menu in the summer or early fall think about using tomatoes as a substitute for the beets.

Ice cream is all a winner for dessert– make it, buy it, love it- I sprinkle with crushed pistachios but use whatever suits your fancy- fresh summer berries, almonds or crush up your favorite chocolate bar.
