- Yaoi enough? This is my RP'ed :thumb195947721: and I knew he didn't want to be lonely for Valentine's Day. So, paired him with the Raphael in Yaoi request. She made a wonderful card of LH fav.me/d37uzcw
yiff you dA if thumbnails no longer work in the desc sector!! <da:thumb id="194601344"> :thumb194601344:
Sorry for the location of the stoppage- it IS a PG-13 art trade group. No critiques are requested on this because I will still take beta level corrections on this... it got a bit rushed and difficult to control... darn gutter brain!
Liked the meal-- stumped for Valentine's??
YOU TOO CAN COOK LIKE LEATHERHEAD!
Although, one small warning- lamb is cooked according to age of critter not size of meat.
Older animals need more cooking time.
Mint Sauce is easy and LH may have doctored his with a blender and food coloring-- would also be a good thing for Saint Patty's now I think on it due to it going with many meats.
To Make it:
* 3 large handfuls of mint leaves, (stems removed)
* 3 teaspoons granulated sugar
* 4 Tablespoons wine vinegar
Wash and shake the mint leaves, sprinkle them with the sugar and chop them rather finely. Put in a bowl. Heat the vinegar and pour it over the mint. Add more sugar if you think the sauce is too sharp. Serve hot or cold with roasted lamb or other meats.
Alternatives: Use lemon juice instead of vinegar and you can also add a little olive oil. Makes a non-traditional mint sauce, being much less violent in flavor, but it is exceptionally good.
Another version and basic Lamb cooking is here:: Lemon Garlic Lamb & Other Mint Sauce
For the Red Sauce (AKA koh-kee-nee-STOH)- look up the sauce alone or try it with the lamb of this recipe: Lamb in Kokkinisto
- had it in a restaurant once & I've loved lamb since-
AND if anyone has a recipe for roasted with vinegar Sheep (my Gpa had a regular leg of & occasionally Head that was GOOOD on Thanksgivings with the family- it was pickled/brined - not sure what- but went good with Gma's sauerkraut) I want that one!
Drink-- my suggestion is a well-doctored White Russian with a bit of ice cream & hazelnut flavor added to make smooth, bit of nutmeg to season... Only cause I love Irish Creme & Kahlua I suggest adding both. Berry drinks are all good but can occasionally run afoul of poor berries.
Check what is good in the freezer section if you are just gonna blend it anyways.Desserts!
Not sure what you like but the Trifles that won my heart are below. Might try them in our own place come April (yes moving- woo)! Strawberry-Chocolate Mascarpone
I suggest the semisweet chocolate option as Baker's Chocolate/Unsweetened can be rather harsh!
One blogger does it with cool whip and frosting- no booze! Chocolate Strawberry Trifle
More goodies in her blog. Like the peanut butter cup trifle! justsewsassy.com/2010/08/30/im…
And for those who usually can't have fun- a Non-Gluten version with Neufchatel cheese! From - I can eat that Blog!
So, spoil your loved ones-- Your best bet for having a Valentine's Day date Next year!
