I know what you ate this weekend

No surprise, this episode of Weekend Eats has a distinctly Easter feel to it! Included in the mix: this photo by Dave Wilson of Tehachapi. He used the recipe for leg of lamb stuffed with greens, feta and pine nuts that Times Food Editor Russ Parsons wrote about last week. Dave reported back:

"Just wanted to thank you for a delicious recipe ... When I saw your recipe I knew I wanted to make it for Easter dinner.  We had about twenty or so people over and I Rotisseried about a 6.5 lb. leg of lamb (there was the usual ham). I witheld the rosemary and only used it for garnish as one of my guests does not like it. I did everything else according to your recipe and wowed even the most culinarily gifted among us. Teenagers were getting up for seconds, imagine that ...The sauce was unbelieveable. The lamb was gone and there was plenty of ham left over. Thank you so much for that recipe, I'm going to keep it in my file indefinitely."

Thank you, Dave, for letting us know how it turned out. If you try any of the recipes from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen, let us see the results. You can share your Test Kitchen photos here.

You can also share your Weekend Eats photos here. Wondering what the heck Weekend Eats is? Each Monday morning, we waste company time by talking about what we ate over the weekend, and swapping photos if we've got them. Check out this photo gallery and you'll see what we mean. And keep reading to see a few -- but not all -- of the highlights from this latest edition of Weekend Eats.
