@Debbie Gorman @cmc.flanders interesting how some of us have food traditions at Easter. We would usually be camping by the banks of the Great Ouse with everything cooked on a BBQ 🧯. Good Friday is always rack of lamb with watercress and tarragon 😃

🥳 yeah - he's home. that's fantastic. Debbie. you both must be thrilled - he's going to get well looked after and fed amazing food 🙂.
we used to holiday a lot in Europe - mainly France - and I always found the food to be of better quality than at home - particularly fruit and veg and chicken too. I've always thought lamb is better at home and luckily I have a good local butcher but I think you are very lucky where you are. I love that Italians are very passionate about their food. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and keep posting your pics 😍👍

@Gordon Moore yes he is. Confined to bed for at least a month.
Around about 1987/8 when mad cow disease raised it’s ugly head and the Govt said it did not exist , I stopped eating meat for 18 years because I did not trust the info. Then I ended up living in Italy where mad cow didn’t seem to exist and I started to ask questions from my local butcher. He explained that the cows here were inoculated at birth and that was the only drugs they were given. No antibiotics, no steriods. The equivalent of our enviromental health made unnanounced visits, took samples of their meat and tested it for the above. Most of our beef is local , 0km , the abbatoir is approx 10 kms away and then it comes back to our butcher. He can even tell you who owned thecattle and when it is being slaughtered!
,I started to eat meat again but never lamb which I could never bring myself to eat along with ducks and geese ( too cute )and liver which I really liked but now I find too strong. The wild boar is culled locally and the rabbit is raised by friends, I occasionally get given pigeon or guinea fowl again raised by friends. It’s another life here and I love living with the seasons and the seasonal produce. I think you would appreciate it.

@Debbie Gorman It's very fatty so I understand why some may not like it but I do love the flavour. I prefer rack of lamb or shoulder rather than a leg roast. what a shame you can't get watercress or tarragon - but I expect you do get amazing tomatoes and salad 😉 can't say I've never tasted grass - I'll leave that to the sheep and lambs 😊Happy Easter Debbie 🐣 is he home? 🤫

Lovely lamb, I just don’t like the taste anymore. But I love watercress which you can’t get here and tarragon which is the russian tarragon here and tastes like grass and not the type you smoke 😅
