Re: Anybody cooking?
- Don't see lamb in the stores here, but I bet it would be good with beef or pork stew meat also! Ronda

- I found the lamb in our (very) local supermarket -- didn't even have to
go into town. The stew meat was about $9/lb. There was also ground
lamb for the same price so I bought some of that too. It's really nice
to find local products such as lamb in the supermarket instead of from,
say, New Zealand.
