Forgot to tell y'all I'm on holiday.

A whirlwind sausage-shaped tour of England staying with various people. We're about to leave stop number 2, my older brother A in Lancaster. All good so far.

Am not supposed to be blogging, hence the lack of full sentences, but realised I didn't quite warn my dedicated readers that I would be awol for a little bit. Back properly on Sunday but am at Mum's with probable blogging opportunity on Friday.

Oh yes, if there are any glaring errors in this brief update, put it down to the fact that I haven't gone for a day without wine yet this holiday.

Adam, the recipe for Flashroast Lamb is as follows:

Take one leg or half leg of lamb, butterflied.

Marinate in large, roughly equal quantities of soy sauce and honey.

Turn oven up to as hot as it will go.

Put marinated lamb, flat, in to roast for 30 minutes at full heat. It will blacken and smoke, this is a good thing.

DO NOT open oven or leave in for longer. Take out to rest for a sensible amount of tiem (10 minutes? I'm not a meat expert). Carve and eat.

Swoon over how yummy it is.

Of course, anyone who isn't Adam is also quite welcome to try this recipe. It's nicked off my dad, who was first served it by a friend in Cornwall several years ago when watching the solar eclipse.

It's bloody lovely.

More on that story later.

I don't eat meat but that does actually sound like it would be absolutely delicious. Have a good time and sorry again we weren't able to organise shuffling our feet and mumbling shy hellos at each other. I'll Try Harder next time.

Errr... how do you get it out without opening the oven? ;-)

Sounds delish, though. :-)

Hello! I've been lurking and popped out to say hello. About the Lamb: do you turn the oven off at 3o minutes, and then leave the lamb in for a bit more? Sounds delicious!

Enjoy your holiday...

Um if A is using the lamb I think he is, it's an enormous leg. Not sure how that will affect the timing!

Well Becky, obviously you have to open the lamb to get it out, otherwise you would only be able to smell it.

Lorna, welcome. You turn the oven off and take the lamb out and cover it in foil or some such to "rest". Well, you probably don't have to cover it but if you have a cat they will eat it if you abandon it uncovered.

Thanks for the advice: I'll be trying that lamb as soon as I have meat-eating friends visiting. Take care!
