The legs of lamb are in the oven. My annual Seder meal cooking has started. St. Joseph Catholic Community has been celebrating the Seder meal since the early 70’s as a way remember where we came from and where we are going.
It has been a tradition for me to cook lamb for well over fifteen years, maybe twenty. In the early years, my father helped cook the lamb and my mother put on the Seder meal for our parish. Prior to that, Lee Keon taught my father and I how to cook the lamb and drink vodka martinis at the old Knight of Colobus lodge while doing the cooking. For the past couple of years, I have been teaching Katie Beth how to season the lamb so maybe some day she take over this tradition.
The smell has filled the church kitchen with the lovely aromas of spices and lamb.
It is nice to be a part of something so special.
