National Roast Leg of Lamb Day

"What do you mean you don't eat no meat? ...That's okay, I'll make lamb." - Andrea Martin as Aunt Voula in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"

It's National Roast Leg of Lamb Day!

Dear National Roast Leg of Lamb Day,

I've been dreading your existence since the day I found out about it. Somewhere, someone at some point in our (recent) history really thought it would be fun to honor this particular food? Well... sigh.

I have to admit that my thorough disgust and lack of excitement at today absolutely carried over into my dish. While I tried to do my best to recreate "lamb" flavors totally vegan, it just failed epicly (probably because of my lackluster attempt [it doesn't help that I've never really been a pro with textured vegetable protein, either]).

I'm glad you're over, NRLLD. I'm glad you're over.

Unhappily yours,

Happy National Roast Leg of Lamb Day!
