Today is National Roast Leg of Lamb Day! People first started eating lamb over 10,000 years ago. It first started in the Middle Ages when farmers realized that sheep were the most useful livestock to raise. They provided wool for items of clothing, milk for dairy products, and a delicious source of meat.
You can cook lamb a variety of different ways, but roasting is one of the most popular methods. This dish pairs beautifully with seasonings like rosemary, oregano, thyme, or lemon zest. For something extra special, make a stuffed leg of lamb or prepare a succulent sauce to serve on top!
To celebrate National Roast Leg of Lamb Day, cook up a traditional roast dinner tonight with lamb as the main course. Bon appétit!
