Happy belated Valentines Day!

My girlfriend and I had an amazing dinner and I of course had to take pictures as I made it.  We made roast lamb shanks and an onion gratin using recipes from Jamie Oliver's awesome book, Cook with Jamie.  The lamb shanks were stuffed with a herb butter and then roasted in a aluminum foil "package" with white wine, rosemary, sage, leeks, shallots, and carrots. It was the best lamb I've ever had!  The onion gratin was made with red and white onions, thyme, creme freche, gruyere and parmesan cheeses.  It was so good, I want to make it all the time.

Even casual food photography is a lot of fun for me. :)

Hope everyone had a good holiday.
