It is my birthday feast and my first choice is always lamb. I could do the usual barbecued lamb, but I wanted something a bit different this year. I drifted toward a lamb curry.

With Jan out of town, I made a lamb stew for Sunday night’s dinner. I also made this lamb soup. Son-in-law, Chris, asked why I did not simply throw everything into one pot. In my mind I had an image of the thick, rich lamb stew and a second vegetable soup with lamb bone broth. While it may all end up in the same place, it would not be the same dining experience to mix the two dishes.
Jan, Big Eilene, and Little Eilene are off to Third Mesa to visit Hopi Eileen and to work on some quilts. While Jan is away, I tend to use up all of the lamb bones that have collected in my freezer to make a Scotch broth. This is a soup that I love, but that Jan cannot stand. Since I am feeding only myself, I decided to pare down the usual amount of liquid and make it more of a stew.
