“Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”– Henry James
There’s something special about summer. With a bit of sunshine, British frowns are turned upside down. What is it about summer that makes people so smiley?
Perhaps it’s the memories of youth. Cramming in mouthfuls of strawberries, chomping on barbecued meat, slurping up fresh orange juice, or sneaking an extra sarnie from the family picnic hamper. Summer food is social: It provides the opportunity for a much needed family get-together, or a reunion of friends. Archie’s marinated BBQ Butterfly Leg of Lamb is the perfect addition to your Summer fun!
To serve: Add carved lamb to the plate, with vegetables half on top. Put the salsa verde and gravy to taste
