Mark’s Very Own Blog!

Mark has finally been bitten by the blogging bug and started one of his very own tonight.   Check it out:

I am not being unkind: he came up with the name himself.  It’s not even that accurate – a lot of the time I help him ruin dinner. 

Tonight’s dinner exploits are featured, and no, we did NOT burn the house down.  Last week Mark DID buy some new smoke detectors and a fire extinguisher.  Let’s just say that tonight we were glad we hadn’t installed the smoke detectors yet!

    Shame on you Shelly! Can’t you recognize “Braised Oven Mitt on a Stick?”

    Oh my bad…Rachael Ray did a whole show on Braised Oven Mitt recently but the presentation was a little different…Maybe a little Rosemary?…Extra Virgin Olive Oil, perhaps? Amatuer… (LOL)…You’re silly.

    Actually, it’s a leg of lamb that I cooked. It looks a little charred, but it tasted OK. At least, that’s what everyone said….they could have been lying…..just goes to show that Mark is NOT the only one who ruins dinner! 😉

    That’s because it’s what’s on the inside that counts.! 🙂
    I’m actually quite impressed with what you guys pull off in the kitchen. It’s usually chicken and ground beef around here and whatever you can do with it to make it look different each time so you feel like you’re eating something new. Of course, the occasional venison meal if it is available but for the most part it’s pretty humdrum around here meal-wise. So hats off to you both!

    Leg of Lamb? You know I honestly thought it was braised oven mitt on a stick. Looks a more than a little strange

    You guys are most unkind! Actually, it was Christmas dinner, if you must know. Everybody certainly ate it with gusto! And we did NOT have a dog hiding under the table.
    I have found that it is very difficult to completely ruin lamb. The meat is so moist and tender that you can overcook it and it still won’t be too bad. Personally, I would rather eat it with a little pink still left in the middle, but I was trying to be acommodating. The lamb made excellent sandwiches that week!
    I would make the recipe again, but would probably take it out 15 degrees before I did!

    Great job on the blog Mark!! I’ll be adding a link from Jessica’s site 🙂 I’m such a horrible cook I’d probably make even your worst “mess-ups” look good 😉

    Sounds like fun, Sandi. Take some pictures of your misadventures and you could be a guest contributor!
