Leg of Lamb

When I was very small, I can remember making roast leg of lamb with my Grandy Kyp. She always included me in the process of cooking, and she taught me along the way. For the reinvention of her recipe, we were lucky to have her join us for the cooking, and the eating!

    I had only had a bite of lamb prior to making this recipe, it was actually my Hubby’s idea to try it. It was so good, I wanted to eat all of it myself!!! I made with for my extended non paleo family members as well and they had second and third helpings. This is a keeper!!!
