Leftover lamb, lettuce, blue cheese, and dates

On Saturday and Sunday I cooked quite a lot of mammalian meat in the form a bone in rib steak and a rolled lamb shoulder.

The great thing about weekend cooking is the leftover meat which can be used cold from the refrigerator as a source of protein for lunch.

If you’re eschewing excessive carbohydrates in the form of bread, noodles, pasta, and rice; then a little bit of meat is a good way to keep hunger at bay.

Rollup of lettuce, lamb, cheese, dates, and honey

Ingredients

  • Leftover slice of lamb shoulder meat
  • Cos lettuce leaf
  • Blue cheese
  • Chopped dates
  • Honey

Instructions

  1. Wash a leaf of lettuce.
  2. Dry the leaf by flicking it so you get water all over the place.
  3. Lay the slice of lamb shoulder meat on the lettuce leaf.
  4. Put some crumbly blue cheese on the meat and flatten it with your thumb to try to spread it out a bit (make sure you have clean hands and under your fingernails, you don’t want anything nasty getting on your food after you’ve been scratching about…).
  5. Press some chopped dates into the blue cheese.
  6. Drizzle some truffle honey over the meat and cheese and dates.
  7. Roll up and eat.

Public Holiday

Today is a public holiday and I’m working from home. The modern availability of broadband Internet is great. I can participate in international teleconferences and do other work without having to be in the office (and wear shoes).

It’s Monday so there will be salmon for tea while for breakfast I splurged and had two steamed eggs rather than one with my wilted spinach and melted cheese.

Two steamed eggs, melted cheese, and wilted spinach. One yolk looked like it may be overcooked but on cracking the capsule, the oozy soft yolk porn flowed... Gary Lum.

Gee, I love my steamed eggs and wilted spinach.
