Things we’re loving this week Love Life (HBO)The Expat Study 2020 – DenmarkLamb Recipe (see below)The Politician Season 2 – (Netflix) Slow Burn – Season 4 David Duke (Podcast)UN online volunteering Kirsty’s Lamb suggestion Leg or shoulder, slow cooked just slides off the bone you can either slice, shred or bbq. Use a rub, just like you would with a brisket. Can be served with cous cous or roasted veggies or rice or flatbreads – even a great side salad. If you don’t do the classic roast go for a greek theme or a middle eastern theme – my recommendation for the middle eastern theme  is: 3 garlic cloves 1 tbsp Ground coriander 1 tbsp Ground cumin  1 tbsp Ground cardamom 1 tsp Cayenne pepper 2 tsp Smoked paprika salt/pepper ¼ cup of extra virgin olive oil 2-3tsp 40-60 ml lemon juice Minted yoghurt Plain Greek Yoghurt, finely chopped mint, lemon juice, olive oil, salt & pepper, garlic clove (minced) Lemon Herb Cous Cous Combine ¾ cup raisins or sultanas or other dried fruit like apricots with 1.5 cups each cous cous and hot boiled vegetable stock. Cover with cling wrap, leave for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Stir through lots of finely chopped parsley and mint, lemon zest, juice, salt, pepper and extra virgin olive oil to taste. *throw in some Pomegranate seeds as well
