LAMB Janette Davies

Here is my version of roast leg of lamb. I buy my joints of meat from a "proper" butcher (Andre Gourmet in Torrevieja). It may seem expensive but, there is always enough for two days meals for two people and usually some remaining for a snack or a sandwich.

  • Leg of lamb, "spiked" with garlic and rosemary
  • 12 mini plum tomatoes
  • Runner beans sliced
  • Stick of celery sliced (same size as beans)
  • Potatoes for roasting (whole medium size, or large quartered)
  • Red onions quartered
  • Squash peeled and cut into big chunks

This leg was quite big and I planned to cook it for 2 hours altogether

  • Heat oven to 175˚c
  • Place the leg in a roasting tin, and drizzle olive oil over (make sure you get it on the garlic and rosemary - these will get very well done, but they are just for flavour, not eating)
  • Place meat in lower part of oven.
  • After 1 hour put in potatoes, onions and squash. (drizzled with olive oil)
  • After 1.5 hours put tomatoes, beans and celery around the meat. There should be lots of lovely juices, so make sure the veg is well coated.
  • After about twenty more minutes, take the meat out to let it rest.

We usually eat it without gravy, but the pan juices are wonderful.

Who Am I?

I was born Janette Christine Power, in Sparkbrook, Birmingham (England) in 1944. Went to Aston Commercial School and worked for Midland Bank for five years. I had various secretarial positions around the Midlands, until a change of career sent me to a Northamptonshire village to run a Pub.

In 1992 I met and married Colin Davies and we moved to a smallholding in Wales. Unfortunately, ill health forced us to sell up and move to Spain.

Now retired, we spend our days reading, writing and drinking wine.

I have published three books; "Hey! Zeus!!" (12 quirky blasts of fun fiction) and Books 1 & 2 of The Big Spanish Adventure Series. I have contributed to various anthologies published through WordPlay Writers Forum and also have a monthly newsletter "Quirky Girl in Spain".
