Taste of the Nation LA & Roast Leg of Lamb dinner

Nothing says charity in Los Angeles like paying to stuff and drink yourself silly.  Also, I’m pretty sure I don’t like sour beer.  I do, however, like soup shots, anything with squid ink, and the spectacle of paella.





Took a week off to go visit friends & family up north (see: Jardiniere) with some unexpected complex dental work involved.  It can’t all be fun and games and fancy restaurants, so one night, I cooked dinner (courtesy of my friend’s CSA box!) and we had a nice little party.

Arugula, grapefruit, red onion salad with lemon vinaigrette

Horseradish mashed potatoes (used skin-on red potatoes and a boatload of prepared horseradish–bless you, Trader Joe’s); vegetables roasted with the leg of lamb

Impatient, only got photos of the cut up lamb.  It was marinated for several hours in some kind of grapefruit, wine, olive oil, herb mixture.
