Lamb in stock?

Postby barney » Fri Apr 06, 2012 10:42 am

Sooooo, my dear mother calls this morning and says she did not order the lamb from the butcher for the spring/Jesus Zombie feast known as Easter dinner. Anyone know where I can get a leg of lamb (bone in or not) on short notice? Like, I need to walk in and pick it up on my way out of town tonight?

Metcalfe's Sentry in Hilldale usually has lamb. So does Jeni Street Market. I'd call ahead, due to Passover/Easter, but I'm pretty sure you'd be in luck at one of those.

Yes. Go to the Village Meat Market in Waunakee. Exceptional leg of lamb at unbeatable prices, and it's an authentic Wisconsin butcher shop. Well worth the trip even if you're headed in the other direction.

You might want to call first, just in case. But you can't miss it, it's right on the main drag.

Metcalfe's came through. They had 'rail' lamb and Pinn Oaks Farm legs in stock, and butterflied, deboned and tied it for me while I waited. If they had a bigger parking lot, I'd shop there a helluva lot more often.....too bad they got squeezed out on the East Wash project. Perhaps Union Corners?
