Options Abound for Holiday Dinner

With the warmer temperatures come many traditions families anxiously await throughout the cold winter months. Whether it’s Opening Day of the baseball season, the first trip back to the beach or just the time-honored tradition of putting away the winter wardrobes, several signs of spring approach one-by-one to mark the dawning of a season many people call their favorite.

Makes 10 Servings

Similar to Christmas dinners, Easter dinners tend to differ depending on the family. While the accepted main course for Thanksgiving is turkey, for Christmas and Easter the main course is less strict, and many families choose everything from rib roast to ham. Another favorite is lamb, such as the following recipe for “Roasted Shoulder of Lamb and Couscous,” courtesy The Culinary Institute of America’s “The Professional Chef (8th Edition)” (Wiley & Sons).

cilantro, thyme, cumin and paprika. Season the lamb with about 1 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the ground pepper. Coat the lamb with the seasoned butter. Place the lamb on a rack in a roasting pan. Add enough of the oil and water to cover the bottom of the pan, but not touch the lamb. (The amount needed will depend on the size of the pan used.) Roast uncovered in a 350° F oven, basting every 15 minutes, until a deep caramel cover develops, about 45 minutes. Cover the lamb and continue to cook until the meat is extremely tender, two to three hours. Check the water/oil level every 30 minutes. Remove the meat and keep it warm. Degrease the liquid in the pan. Gradually add the slurry, whisking constantly. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Thinly slice the lamb and serve immediately with the couscous and condiment mix.

Though the spring season is more likely associated with the return of the backyard barbecue, for many families the first big meal of spring is Easter Sunday dinner. After a day spent scavenging for Easter eggs and filling up on Easter baskets full of candies and other treats, a good meal always goes a long way for celebrants of the holiday.

Options Abound for Holiday Dinner

With the warmer temperatures come many traditions families anxiously await throughout the cold winter months. Whether it’s Opening Day of the baseball season, the first trip back to the beach or just the time-honored tradition of putting away the winter wardrobes, several signs of spring approach one-by-one to mark the dawning of a season many people call their favorite.

Makes 10 Servings

Similar to Christmas dinners, Easter dinners tend to differ depending on the family. While the accepted main course for Thanksgiving is turkey, for Christmas and Easter the main course is less strict, and many families choose everything from rib roast to ham. Another favorite is lamb, such as the following recipe for “Roasted Shoulder of Lamb and Couscous,” courtesy The Culinary Institute of America’s “The Professional Chef (8th Edition)” (Wiley & Sons).

cilantro, thyme, cumin and paprika. Season the lamb with about 1 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the ground pepper. Coat the lamb with the seasoned butter. Place the lamb on a rack in a roasting pan. Add enough of the oil and water to cover the bottom of the pan, but not touch the lamb. (The amount needed will depend on the size of the pan used.) Roast uncovered in a 350° F oven, basting every 15 minutes, until a deep caramel cover develops, about 45 minutes. Cover the lamb and continue to cook until the meat is extremely tender, two to three hours. Check the water/oil level every 30 minutes. Remove the meat and keep it warm. Degrease the liquid in the pan. Gradually add the slurry, whisking constantly. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Thinly slice the lamb and serve immediately with the couscous and condiment mix.

Easter dinner comes many options, one of which is One telltale sign that winter has With delicious Roasted Shoulder of Lamb and Couscous. ended is the arrival of Easter, a Christian holiday that’s typically celebrated in late March or early April. Though the spring season is more likely associated with the return of the backyard barbecue, for many families the first big meal of spring is Easter Sunday dinner. After a day spent scavenging for Easter eggs and filling up on Easter baskets full of candies and other treats, a good meal always goes a long way for celebrants of the holiday.
