oh my and some salty chocolate chunk goodness

Well, the lamb recipe is all in my head - basically, roast a lamb joint or even shanks if you can get them without selling your first-born (still reeling with shock at how expensive sheep is over here) on a bed of tomato sauce (maybe a bought jar of the stuff or make your own), chickpeas, root veggies (parsnip and carrots going in my dish) and whatever else would taste good. Slow roast - I'm trying the slow cooker this time; oven roasting works too.

The sweet recipe can be found on p.18 of Spring's (issue 28) Edible Vancouver ... it involves pecans, chocolate and sea salt ...
