Of course I started the new year with some serious cooking. What a better way to chase away those cobwebs after the heavy new years eve! We had both sons in the house and the daughter in law to be, the only one missing the daughter who spent new year with friends.
So full house for lunch! I decided on leg of lamb spiced up with anchovies and rosemary!
Cut pockets in the lamb and fill with anchovies (in oil) and twigs of rosemary. Sea salt and freshly milled pepper and a bit of olive oil on top! Cook for 20 minutes per kilo and an extra 20 minutes. Make a nice gravy from the meat juice and serve with Pommes Dauphinois and veg!

I had some cranberries left over in the fridge from Christmas. Made a lovely crumble for new years day! You need:

300 g cranberries
100 g cubed butter
150 ml oat
150 ml plain flour
100 ml light brown moscovado sugar
one pinch of salt

Put the berries in a buttered oven dish. Mix the oats, flour, sugar, salt and butter with your fingers until you have a firm dough. Put as evenly as possible on top of the cranberries and cook for 25 minutes at 225 degrees Celsius. Serve with cream, custard or ice cream. Yummy!
