Pan Seared Lamb Shoulder With Special Sauce

Not wanting to join the crowds in the restaurant, the Piggies decided to have Mother's Day celebration dinner at home and the chef was none other than Daddy. The Momsie became the kitchen slave chef's assistant and endured the barks and calls  made the mashed potato , salad and buns. Well...since Daddy was so gracious enough to want to stand near the heat and pan seared the lamb just for me, I helped out with some side dishes for pan seared lamb  :p  I made  japanese mashed potato which was an instant hit with the Piggies and the potato buns which I will  later share with you in my other new blog which I will officiate it soon :p 

Just to let you all know that I have decided to put all my bakes and desserts in the other new blog -Elinluv's Sweet Delights.  Meanwhile, this blog will be strictly for dishes I cooked for the family.  For now please drool what Daddy cooked for me and the Piggies on  Mother's Day here :))

I love the sauce that goes with the pan seared lamb shoulder
delicious especially prepared with some much love :p

japanese mashed potato....delish

I had the most wonderful Mother's Day dinner
and I pray that Daddy will always be there to
cook such wonderful Mother's Day dinners
for me and my Piggies LOL!
Seriously..he is a better cook than agree with me ??
 please say yes so that he will continue to cook for us
when he reads all your comments LOL!
Bribery all the way.......:p
