Sunday we went into the city to have a late-ish lunch with Max. There was gazpacho waiting when we arrived, and then the boys made some...
Max had obtained a fairly huge chunk of lamb from Costco. So huge, in fact, that Tom hypothesized it may have in fact come from a sheep. Tom trimmed off most of the fat and made some "meat wraps" by slicing the meat a bit thinner and then flattening it with a mallet. On top, the boys spread feta cheese, arugula, sun dried tomatoes, rosemary and toasted pine nuts (am I forgetting anything?). Then they rolled the whole thing up and baked it. It was outstanding. So, so, so tender and tasty.
After stuffing ourselves to our respective brims, we went out for a little walk around Max & Agnes's neighborhood. We came upon some giant, Jurassic-looking leaves in someone's front yard, so of course Soren had to be held up for a size comparison. All in all, a tiring but very fine day.
