Easter has just passed here in Greece, with red eggs,
spit-roasted lamb, sweetbreads and all related,
classically and traditionally as every year.
The Holy week is always a super busy time and notwithstanding
the fact that the Easter festive lunch was the responsibility
of my brother, there were a lot of things to do or
to check out that kept me away from my laptop and
your blogs. Hope you don’t mind.
So, we experienced a different sensation this time,
roasting a whole lamp on the rooftop of my brother’s home.
An urban “adventure” indeed! Cooking a whole lamb isn't
the sort of thing you just decide to do one morning.
And on the rooftop!
Who could possibly imagine that a neurologist would also
showcase excellent surgeon skills? I can assure you that
it takes a good deal of planning and preparation.
My brother sewed the lamb with thoroughness and
did all this laborious job alone,
despite being a beginner! We enjoyed a hassle-free lunch
on their roof terrace, feeling good with the sea-breeze
and the warming April sunshine.
Not forgetting the amazingly well organised reception
by my brother’s wife, who knows how to focus
on experiences of togetherness.
Coffee was served inside as we were all begging for a
comfortable sofa after a heavy but extra delicious lunch.
and for those who surround me with their love.
Hope that you are also okay and have shared some
s p e c i a l m o m e n t s
with your beloved ones.
