    Lamb Navarin
    Ingredients for four people

    1.5Kg of Lamb
    One carrotOne big onion
    One can of cooked tomatoes
    Four garlic cloves
    Five dried Bay leaves
    Olive oil
    2 Tablespoons of sugar
    Vegetables for garnish
    Onion, baby carrots, potatoes, brussels sprouts, green peas etc.---
    Chopped parseley

    Cut lamb into 5cm cube. Heat a frying pan and put butter and olive oil in it. Fry lamb cubes until they are a golden color. Add sugar and stir the meat for a couple of minutes.  

    Put the meat into a pressure cooker and add onion, canned tomatoes, garlic and Bay leaves. Cover them with bouillon soup and cook for approximately 10 minutes.
    Leave it over a night and get rid of excess fat which is on the surface of liquid. Heat the cooker and take out the meat. Strain the sauce and put it back into the cooker. After thickening the sauce over high flame for a couple of minutes put the lamb back into the cooker. 
    Put also vegetables for garnish in the cooker and cook for 15 minutes or so. Place meat and vegetables on the plate and sprinkle chopped parselies. 

    Baron`Arques is fragrant with hints of plum, spice and toasty notes. It is full bodied with solid core of fruits supported by firm tannins. It goes well with red meat , especially the older vintages.
    Lamb Navarin is perfect as a main dish to serve at a weekend dinner. You can cook it a day ahead, so you can relax and enjoy the conversation with your guests, if you serve it as a main dish. It is a helpful dish!I am certain you guest will love this it since it warms up your body in cold winter.

     Zodiac Sign of the Month


    January, 21 – February, 19


    I know


    Those born under the sign of Aquarius not only march to a different drummer, they make up new music as they go along. They are 'mind oriented' individuals, whose thoughts never stop tick-tocking over. Because of their high focus on intellectual exploration, many inventors, eccentrics and highly original trailblazers are born under this sign. Their intense ability to live on many mental levels, holds both pain and pleasure for Aquarians. For example, in the American Hall of Fame there are more Aquarians than any other sign, yet statistics reveal that in mental institutions there are more Aquarians than any other sign too.

    Many extremes can surround this sign and these extremes can take them to both heaven and hell. But in everyday terms, most Aquarians are extremely humanitarian and often involved in social programs that assist others. They can also be objective in judgement, for they never let their emotions get in the way. Outgoing and amiable, Aquarians attract friends wherever they go and those whom Aquarians befriend have their unswerving loyalty.Aquarians are the zodiac's most mysterious and unusual people - and no two are anything alike. Those born under this sign - ruled by innovative and non-conformist Uranus - march to the beat of their own drum. They see life in a different way. Others quite frequently think their habits and ideas are eccentric or crazy in some way, but it is this uniqueness that makes them so special.

    The Aquarian mind is extremely quick and they never seem to stop thinking (it is interesting to note that many born under this sign suffer from insomnia.) Aquarians usually have strong political, environmental or social beliefs. But whether it is a relationship, career or cause - Aquarians are happiest when they have "something" to believe in and nurture.
