Marinated Leg of Lamb

breakfast - cheese, grapefruit, strawberries, tea, vitamin, water
i left work at 11 because of weather
(brandon and i were out running some errands so we stopped to take lunch home before the snow hit)
lunch - Snow Day Mamosas!
1 chicken soft taco (from la loma) a few chips and salsa
dinner - LEG OF LAMB

We bought 2 pounds of boneless leg of lamb.
I seasoned the leg of lamb with chopped garlic, italian seasoning, salt, pepper, rosemary, and oregeno and red wine, olive oil, and lemon juice - i let this marinate for 5 hours. then took it out patted it dry. because it was as cut piece and not whole, i seared the meat side to seal it and then roasted it (on a rack in a pan) 425 degrees for 20 minutes then turned heat to 325 for about 1 hour - (25 minutes per pound) when internal temp hits 125 it's medium rare. but ours was a little more medium because our twine didn't stay on to keep it held tight together.
I served with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.

Plate Up and Enjoy!
