At the market this morning we bought a bunch of beetroot. I cleaned the leaves from this and added some spinach from the garden (and later some frozen peas as Doug likes peas with a roast). The table was laid, wine poured, mint sauce made, kettle boiled and plates in the oven to warm and we drove to the shop for our roast which was ready for us.
On our return home the roast and vegetables were placed on separate plates and the juices saved to make a gluten free gravy. I poured the boiling water on the greens and they cooked while I made the gravy and Doug carved theleg of lamb.
A few minutes later we were sitting down to this.
Roast lamb with roasted potatoes, pumpkin and carrot and the greens.
Doug is starting to feel a bit better. A couple of days ago I changed the dressing and we discovered that he had over a dozen stitches on the main wound. He had a couple of smaller ones on the other side of his face. I know he was relieved to find it was healing well. Roll on Tuesday when the stitches are removed.
