I'll be on a plane coming home from Passover. ;-)
You've described a very simple yet delicious way of roasting lamb. If you
add lemon and rosemary and oregano it will have a Greek flavor. Accompany
it with a simple mint sauce--vinegar, a touch of water, sugar, mint.
Are you looking for a light spring soup, or something with more substance
Dessert could be some form of custard, possibly with bits of candied
ginger in it.
