A bit of lamb on Sunday...

Homer would like this lamb ALOT In news that is sure to upset vegetarians everywhere, or as I like to call them, 'crazy people', Irish lamb is fast growing in popularity as the Sunday family roast.

According to the Irish Independent:

Easter is traditionally the time we see the first lamb on sale but the SuperValu supermarket chain has bucked the trend and has it on its shelves today.

Lamb is now the second most popular meat in Ireland. Loin chops are increasingly seen on the dinner table but the leg of lamb remains the firm favourite.

The Spring lamb season begins in March and lasts until early October.

Musgrave SuperValu-Centra (MSVC), which supplies the locally owned SuperValu and Centra stores, says it has a policy of sourcing only 100pc Irish meat to ensure quality and traceability.
And the company predicts it will sell close to €25m worth of Irish Lamb this year

Mmm! I must admit there aren't many things tastier than a nice bit of lamb!

Baa and so forth

Usually I'll end up with some mince pie on a Sunday though, or else a bit of ham. It's been a while since I've had lamb chops.

What about yourselves? Are you lamb fans? Is it your meal of choice on a Sunday?
