October through December, 2019

Paul and Arthur wanted a “Patagonian Lamb Roast” for Christmas Eve Dinner. It was a complex undertaking, requiring much firewood, a fire pit, a Patagonian Cross (aka Asado Cross), and a 50 pound butchered lamb. The roasting process required over 8 hours from fire to table. As a precaution to prevent embarrassing run-ins with the authorities, we let the fire department and neighbors in the canyon know the smoke they would see in our direction was intentional. In this picture Marcus and Arthur rotate the cross, with Paul helping guide the cross into its stand.

We had 19 people for the Christmas Eve Dinner. There was plenty of lamb left over for our Christmas Day Dinner (see below).
