Sunday Craft Time

I've been wanting to make stuffed grape leaves for awhile--don't ask me why--but I knew it was a pretty involved process. And when I haven't done something before, I tend to look at the recipe every 10 seconds. In other words, I don't attempt projects like this when home with the kids while Ryan is in school. So dad and I got to work when the kiddos were sleeping.

After soaking the grape leaves to remove excess salt, we patted them all dry. We filled them with a mixture of lamb, rice, allspice, and cinnamon. They then simmered for an hour.

We really enjoyed eating them for dinner!
