Roast Lamb, Marmalade Pudding and Hexie Quilt Update

We don't have a Sunday roast dinner very often but I had half a leg of lamb in the freezer so I decided to do this recipe from Jamie Oliver.

Jamie Oliver's Roast Lamb

I've never cooked a roast like this before. You put a tray in the bottom of the oven with the potatoes, parsnips and carrots in it.  You then put the marinaded lamb joint......

 ....straight onto the oven shelf so that the juices and fat drip onto the veg. It was delicious and very easy.

For pudd, I made an old favourite of mine, Marmalade Pudding.......

I served it with custard but it's really nice with ice cream too.

I've been keeping cosy today as I've got a bit of a cold. This afternoon I've been watching the film 'It's a Wonderful Life' whilst piecing my blue hexie quilt.

It's growing!

I started this back in June whilst on holiday in France.

I want it to be a double bed size when completed....

I'm using any scraps with blue in them but I'm also adding hexie flowers in different colours to create some interest and focus.

Thanks for popping by!

  1. I got your email just so you know and thank you so much for answering my questions. There are certain blogs and bloggers that I want to get to know better. I blog because I want to journal my life but I also would like to make friends and you and your family are at the top of that list! I will email you later too. I have a doctor appointment tomorrow over an hour away and it's also lab work but a shopping opportunity that only comes twice a year so I'm busy making my list and checking it twice today!
    The lamb looks wonderful and what a genius idea from Jamie! I'm really interested in that pudding too...yum.
    The hexies are so gorgeous....all those luscious patterns and colors all together...I just love them! I started back making some but I think I did it're not supposed to go through the paper are you?
    LOL! Duh.....I really need to read directions more often.....I always think I will remember but I don't.
    I want to make a table runner of sorts with mine. Now that I'm in to quilting again I may have to look at your fabric! One can never have too much! I hope you feel better....I had the same thing last week but by the time I realized I was sick I was over it! LOL! Have a great week!

  2. I've never heard of cooking a roast like that but it makes sense. Glad it was yummy. Your hexie quilt is quite yummy too : )

  3. Hi Maggie! Look at you go! That meat looks luscious! What a cute quilt!


I always love to hear from you!
