Leg of Lamb recipe

For the past two years our cucumber harvest has been pitiful.  This season - we’re giving them to all of our neighbors and making pickles as quickly as possible.  We’ve been searching for new ways to use our abundant supply……

This recipe is from cooks.com and we swapped the the jar of sweet mixed  pickles for our homemade bread and butter pickles.  

1 leg of lamb, half or whole
1 jar sweet mixed pickles
1 sm. jar Gulden’s brown mustard
Garlic powder

Sprinkle garlic powder on leg of lamb. Bake at 350 degrees until about half done (estimate approximately 20 minutes per pound, cook for half of total). Meanwhile, combine the pickles, including the juice, with the mustard. Mix well. Spoon over the lamb and continue roasting until lamb is done. Serve pickles and pan juice as a sauce.

I was afraid - it sounded nasty - it smelled even worse - but the flavor was amazing!  I highly recommend this recipe for anyone with an abundant supply of cucumbers!

OK, So I’ve been reading my Recipe Book for Feeding Wild Birds.  Seems mealworms are quite popular with birds - and to be honest - I had no idea what mealworms were.  Then today, we were at a locally owned hardware store and low and behold - I found mealworms.  They are grossest looking things I have ever seen.  I was even creeped out carrying them around the store.  I hope my birds appreciate this!

My neighbor convinced me I need to start drinking this water that she drinks.  Come to find out - everyone is drinking it and I somehow missed the whole thing.  So now, in my constant attempt to drink more water - I am trying water with lemon, cucumber, mint and ginger.  I’m not sure if the water really has all the benefits that the internet claims it does - but hey, if I’m drinking more water that is in itself a good thing.
