    Father, what cut is it?

  2. Art says:

    Wow, Father, that looks lovely! It looks like it is sprouting rosemary. What other goodies did you stuff it with?

  3. John Enright says:

    You’ve posted many food related things, all of which look great. Rome should take note of this, and appoint you as the Holy Father’s chief chef, Father!

  4. MD says:

    Fr. Z

    You are the man!

  5. Tim Ferguson says:

    You’ve ripped out the heart of dissent, trussed it up with the rigid cords of truth, stuffed it with a rich filling of fidelity (and rosemary, that’s for remembrance!) and are grilling it on the hot and persistent coals of orthodoxy.

  6. r.j.sciurus says:

    You must be REALLY hungry.

  7. AlexE says:

    Alas, Father, as my mother beigns to mourn my upcoming return to the seminary and starts cooking my favorite meals, you turned tonights pot roast into a second string meal. Oh well, soon I will forget about your tempting roast and remember my mother’s pot roast while I am facing a plate of brown mystery meat.

  8. Dr. Eric says:


    Offer it up. ;-)

  9. The Digital MC says:

    Looks really good!

  10. AlexE says:

    Dr Eric,

    the long standing joke is that we free many souls from purgatory for that very reason. But as Archbishop Fulton J Sheen said, the seminiarian complains about the food and the priest the Divine Office (Thank the good Lord I haven’t seen that )

  11. Dr. Eric says:

    I pray that you will be another St. Jean Vianney, young man. :-)

  12. Gabriella says:

    Yummy traditional Sunday supper ;)

  13. Cortney says:

    How about a Father Z. cookbook, available for sale—with the proceeds used to help feed the birds (and the guests)?!

  14. This was boned leg of lamb, stuffed with homemade pesto.

  15. ssoldie says:

    Invite me Fr.z I’ll come.

  16. AlexE says:

    I will bring the desert and the wine and do the dishes!!!!!!

  17. Girgadis says:

    Leg o’lamb on a gas-fired grill? You are a gifted chef.

  18. Agnes says:

    Mary had a little lamb,
    She had him with mint jelly,
    And everywhere that Mary went,
    The lamb was in her belly.

  19. AlexE says:


    that is quite funny

  20. dimsum says:

    Father, it looks great. Hope you had nice wine to go along.

  21. Tina in Ashburn says:

    yum that looks fab, Father. Pesto stuffed? oooooh. [drool]

  22. irishgirl says:

    Ooooo that looks yummy, Fr. Z!

    Yeah, I’m with ssoldie-invite me to one of your suppers!

    Maybe you can have AlexE the seminarian come, too!

  23. Agnes says:

    AlexE – Uttered by at least someone in this household at nearly every Easter dinner.

    Fr Z – Should a shepherd be in the habit of… consuming his sheep? Everybody! Run!

  24. Agnes: You seem to be a little anxious!

  25. NLucas says:

    Agnes: LOL!

    Cortney: The title for the cookbook could be “Save the Recipe, Save the World” or “Eat the Black (Angus), Drink the Red.”

    Of course, Father would accompany the cookbook with an appropriate podcazt: “Today our guest is the cook of Saint Augustine of Hippo, the famous Gustibus….”

    In Christ,

    Comment by John Enright

    After a few months with Fr Z’s gourmet offerings, BXVI would look like JXXIII.

  27. So, Father, I would rub a pesto mixture on one side of a butterflied leg, roll it, and then bind it with string? (I have a leg of lamb in my fridge and an enormous basil plant in my garden.)

  28. Rich: I wouldn’t just rub some pesto onto the lamb. Put it on in a nice layer.

  29. Thanks, Father. We’ll be cooking it on a Weber for supper this week.
