Last time that Little Brother came to visit he told me he had left some meat from his farm in my freezer. So he had. Two large roasts, one mutton and one beef. Last week I had the brilliant idea to roast it for one meal and then mince the remainder to make cottage pie. However our daytime temperatures are in the mid-twenties celsius now and our house is west facing so gets very much hotter than that in the afternoon. Nothing daunted I rose at 5am this morning and set the roast going then went back to bed having set my alarm clock for two hours later. Roast cooked to perfection, a slightly longer sleep than normal for me and I still got to church on time:-)
This afternoon I sliced/carved the leg of mutton, retained some for dinner tonight and minced the other in my good old fashioned cast iron mincer.
