Full Belly Farms Lamb dinner

A few times a year, Full Belly Organic Farms allows you to purchase an entire lamb, so a few of us pitched in and fantasized about lamb tagines, ribs, and stews. A month later, we received white papered packages of lamb neatly prepared into chops and ribs.

I ended up making rosemary pesto lamb chops from Epicurious.com, tomatoes with breadcrumbs, and roasted potato wedges. Not surprisingly, the lamb turned out incredibly tender, fragrant, clean. And with every bite, it seemed we were all a bit more conscious of what we were eating, a once living breathing animal. And yes, somehow, it did make you feel more connected to the earth.
