Yes, it’s rich. Yes, it’s fattening. And yes, it’s gorgeous. This is in fact the evening supper that prompted Mr Gastronomics to rub his tummy contentedly, plonk a kiss on my cheek and tell me he's glad I'm doing this "blogging thing". Praise indeed, eh?

This week the offers at Supervalu include 33% off Irish Leg of Lamb (fair play for allowing us to stock up on our Easter joints early!) priced at just €8.97 per kilo, not bad going. A little less interesting are the reduced round roast (€7.03) and pork steak (€6.44)...Read More
