New Year's Eve found me and the husband at home, and me spending most of the day cooking. His aunt raises lambs for the state fair, and this year we purchased one and had them send the butchered cuts to us. 75 pounds of lamb has led to a number of Google searches for lamb recipes! I'd tried Osso Buco with one of our packs of shanks, and it turned out so tasty I had to use our new Dutch oven (thanks, Grandma!) to replicate it for New Year's. Like last time, too, I forgot to bring out the gremolada, despite having the parsley and the lemon in the fridge. Oops.

In the pot before being served:

New Year's Day found me too lazy to pull back out the camera, but we enjoyed dessert for breakfast: crepes with macerated strawberries, fresh blueberries and blackberries, diced bananas, the rest of the walnuts that didn't go in the pastry last night, homemade chocolate sauce (melted Ghiradelli bittersweet chips, caster sugar, vanilla and cream/milk), and fresh whipped cream with vanilla. Diabetic comas all around. :)
