But I can't find anyone selling it for a reasonable price consistently around here.

Unless enough people boycott it, little will happen and you are making yourself miserable for no reason.

I do prefer the fattier, corn finished US leg of lamb, but will go with NZ if need be. We probably do lamb, either leg or chops 4-5 times a year, but typically it's a special occasion, but lamb burgers are getting more exposure.
Hope they don't get ELChivito's goat.....

Lamb is easy to find in the west part of Houston. Also over in the Sharpstown district. Little Arab stores are everywhere.

And if you like Mexican food check out the Fiesta supermarkets in Houston. You would think you were in a Mexican border town since every staple of the Mexican diet is sold by Fiesta.

That's the trouble because marinating and grilling it isn't all that hard. Usually just lemon juice, crushed garlic, olive oil, salt and some dry oregano does the trick.

Speaking of lamb, just heard on NPR yesterday that the Mediterranean diet offers the best balance between heart and cognitive health.

I'm not even marinating anymore. I infuse some olive oil with spices in a sheet pan in the low oven for about an hour, then take a butterflied leg, fat side up, and just lay it on the infused oil and spices/aromatics to roast, then the last three minutes it gets finished under the broiler to crisp up the fat cap. No bone, so it can be sliced like a brisket.

Only place I know that I can get it constantly is the adopted parents place. I have to remember to ask them to get it, freezer it and pick it up. Usually some stew and loin chops.

At 48,if the body holds out without too much more issues for another 15 years, I'll be fine. Taking care of people in an Assisted Living place, nursing homes and even in their own home I can see what I don't want to be in my elder years. Even now, I can see the decline in my vision and hearing from when I was young. I have no desire to live long and have one system fail after the other and reduce my independence. Once I hit 60, it will be DNR and no fixtures that will make me bedridden or dependent.

Agreed! Personally, I'd rather go down a quick death. There's no dignity in wearing adult diapers, or having bed sores. IMO, the human body was not designed to live past age 60; but I'll happily take 70 as long as I'm mobile and still have my wits about me.

You are ASSUMING that we both still have our wits at present. Some may disagree.

Judging from the strange events in my life over the past year, I fear you may be right!!!

You guys are chickens. I plan to live long enough to become an insufferable burden to my loved ones.

Here's our favorite whole kid goat or very young lamb treatment. Insert garlic cloves, about 15, in holes poked all over it with the point of a knife. Rub the entire carcass inside and out with extra virgin olive oil. Make a wet rub paste out of fresh rosemary, ground black pepper, oregano, crushed red pepper, kosher salt and pomegranate juice powder mixed into a paste with fresh lemon juice. Rub the carcass inside and out with the paste and wrap the beast tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for two days.
Spit roast the animal over medium-low mesquite coals for several hours until the meat pulls easily from the bones. This will require careful tending. Be sure to have enough Negra Modelo iced to last through the entire cooking and eating process so that beer runs are not necessary. During the cooking process, tenders are required to sit around and tell tall tales about each other. It helps tenderize the meat. Or something.

Sounds like a feast fit for a king! Reminds me of an Egyptian lamb dish my sister makes for Thanksgiving, since we can't stand turkey.

Yes but to be a burden to the family, you have to have money so they have no choice but to put up with you. Also there is the part where you have to suffer, aka cut the nose to spite the face.

I plan to go out kicking and screaming, covered in someone else's blood, just like the way I came in...
