when you're writing a thesis, just make a slow roast

Aglaia Kremezi is an authority on Greek gastronomy and a lovely lady. I found this recipe of hers for leg of lamb stuffed with seasonal greens and feta cheese on Epicurious which I'm going to try out. I love her recipes!

In the meantime, I have a four-hour slow roast (160 C) right now in the oven (stuffed with garlic with a very simple marinade - some Dijon with oregano, Cornish sea salt, pepper and olive oil). I have included some parsnips, carrots, red onion, and leeks. Totally random, I know. This should be typically done on a Sunday. A Wednesday and I'm making a roast. But it's incredibly easy as I am writing up the thesis. And I found a very great price on this organic Welsh leg cut yesterday at Waitrose. Couldn't resist!

Back to work. Will let you know how it turned out.

Peace and love.

Yanni, thanks for dropping by my site and for your kind comments. I absolutely adore the promo and would love to know more information about the show. Congratulations and best of luck with that endeavor!

Also, I read a comment about an article you wrote for Taste & Style--did a brief search online but didn't turn anything up. If you could forward some info to me, I'd love to read it. As an editor/writer myself (who's been in a writing "slump" lately as motherhood has taken full priority) I would very much enjoy reading what you've had published.
