Default Xristos Anehsti

Happy Easter!

Over at Friends celebrating Easter. Indiana pasture raised 35 lb lamb on the spit over hardwood charcoal, Moussaka, stuffed vine leaves, marinated beans with beef, spinach pie, stuffed eggplant, stewed leeks w/tomatoes, pasticio, etc, etc, etc, etc. I can't even begin to name all the desserts.

Lots of good wine, ouzo, and Tsipouro.

Broke a box of Anejo 55's for the post dinner coma.

What a feed - I think I might switch to the Eastern branch!

The lamb is awesome right off the spit. Once it cools, it looses a lot. Best method, which the smart ones used, was load up your plate with everything else and either no lamb or very little lamb and routinely revisit the rotisserie for more meat. Without question every Greek family said they had a rotisserie very similar to the picture. When my host had his daughters wedding reception he said they had 5 lambs going and by the end of the event not a scrap of meat was left. Frankly, I like lamb more than beef, pork, or chicken. And cooked by a Greek straight off the spit is the best way to have it IMO.

I was in Larissa Greece two years ago visiting my brother on a NATO assignment. Every meal was better than the one before!! Tsipouro became a new favorite addiction.
