Lamb Hash From A Taste of the Taber Cookbook and Lindsey House Newsletter

I have stayed and visited the Captain Lindsey House on several occassions. I’ve also enjoyed sailing on the Stephen Taber. The food and hospitality for both is outstanding. I like the lamb hash and feel it is a great treat. If any of you have special hash recipes, I would look forward to having your submit them. Just see our submission guidelines. For a get-a-away, the Captain Lindsey House is ideal.

Post Script from the Quarter Deck

Capts Ken and Ellen Barnes

“Spring is sprung the grass has riz, I wonder where the flowers iz.”  Well not so fast.  Spring is late this season so our guests are still warming themselves by their in-room fireplaces and our cozy living room fireplace as well.

We are busy planning our lovely gardens, we know our hidden back garden will be a delight shortly. The tomatoes for the Lindsey Street window boxes are planted already.  They’ve sprouted in our sunny windows up on Dodge Mountain.  Don’t miss all the fun Summer Solstice weekend (June 22nd) and be sure to take advantage of our April/May IRS package. Hope to see you soon!

The Trip to Bountiful

Horton Foote’s The Trip to Bountiful, adapted from his own television play, tells the story of a lonely widow who wants to return to her hometown but is consistently thwarted by her overbearing son and bossy daughter-in-law. One day, she succeeds in breaking free and embarks on her trip to Bountiful, Texas, in hopes of gaining understanding and peace of mind.

The drama is an understated and elegiac portrayal of the struggle-of-self associated with aging and the bittersweet nostalgia of loss. It is considered Foote’s greatest work, and the film adaptation won Geraldine Page her first Oscar for the role as Mother Watts.

This production is directed by Laurel Johnson and designed by Ken Barnes.

This is a wonderful thing to do with left over leg o’ lamb.  It’s a great dish for company and absolutely irresistible if you like lamb.

1 large onion minced
3 springs of parsley, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 slices of bacon, minced
3 cups cooked chopped lamb
1 cup meat gravy or stock
1/2 cup tomato sauce
salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
1 cup heavy cream

2  TBSP grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 325°.  Melt butter in skillet, add onions.  Sauté until golden.  Add parsley, garlic, and bacon.  Cook briefly.  Mix in remaining ingredients, except cream and cheese.  Bake uncovered for 1 hour, stirring from time to time.  Place the hash in four individual ramekins, cover with cream and sprinkle with cheese.  Brown under a hot broiler.

    This inn is one of favorites in the world.
    I miss the scrumptious breakfasts by the fire or
    on the terrace. I can hardly wait to prepare
    this unique lamb hash on Easter Monday Morning.
