  1. As-salaamu 'alaykum Sr. Tammy,

    I've tried this recipe and I was surprised how well it worked in my first try. The lamb was tender and the spinach was tasty. I enjoyed it for dinner with a good company.

    I still have 2 more pounds of lamb so now I thinking of trying the other recipes.

    Aad ba umahadsantahay, Ilaahayna hakaa abaal mariyo!
