Lamb Roast

I am going to be very honest, I hate lamb, no matter how I make it I have never truly loved it.  But this recipe might actually make me enjoy it.  I decided to make it, since my tiny humans had never had it, you know you have to broaden their horizons on food as well as your own. Give this recipe a try.
