This is what I cooked for dinner tonight, sorry no pics.  I don't have a name for it, but hope to have one soon, when I have a good name I will post to Best Recipes, a site I get some inspiration from and a huge variety of recipes to pick.  One of my favourite meats is Lamb, and I usually cook the Lamb as it is really expensive her in Aus right now ... The land that prospered on the sheep's back ... and we only eat it maybe once a fortnight.  I found a recipe by ck.hosgood that gave me the base idea, but I wanted a richer sauce in the Lamb, and I don't eat bacon, so I used olives instead.  I also like some spice as well, so added the coriander and others.

The meal went well and my favourite comment was made,... that I did not cook enough!, this is a good datum that the meal was more than ok.

I am after a name for this, so you can Tweet me at http://twitter.com/#!/flikit_pictures or reply at Best recipes and give me a name for this recipe using the tag #MaxxsLamb if done in twitter.  I don't have a prize, but I will credit you with the name if that is ok.

Takes about ten minutes to prepare first lot of ingredients, another ten minutes if you need to dice the Lamb yourself.  This is not a quick meal and has about 2 hours cooking all up, so if you work, pick a weekend to cook, unless you are home to prep and cook.
