This presentation of the leg of lamb has been on the menu for a little while now. Kevin wonders how long he should keep it going. He skewers chunks of leg, cooks it to ordered temperature, and serves it on the house made pita bread with appropriate vegetables, feta cheese, and a dollop of tzatziki sauce. People love it, even though very few make it through the whole thing, especially the pita bread on the bottom, which has been quietly soaking up all the juices. It's a big, flavorful, intriguing plate of Mediterranean goodness. Will it stay or will it go?
these bagels came out looking so symmetrical, so pretty, so consistently without a big hole? That's because the baker (moi) had some professional assistance this time. Kevin stepped into the role of bread maker magnifique and helped out. We weighed out the dough and he rolled them (very quickly I might add) into balls. We let the balls rest for a few minutes and then spun them around on our finger to shape the bagels. They looked really good when they went into the water bath; as Angie commented "Wow, those look like real bagels!". Thanks. Anyway, they rose a bit much in the oven and so lost their hole, but otherwise, not too bad. We're getting closer to a bagel we can offer as a special sandwich at lunch.
