Hello Mr. Parsons! This is not about a recipe. I just saw a plate on your post about perfect leg of lamb. (April 15/22) It is green with gold . My Mother had the same dishes & I believe she must have got them about 70-80 years ago. I have one large serving plate & that is all that was left when she passed 18 years ago. I was just so amazed that I had to contact you. I am the youngest of 11 children & we were all born on Bell Island & moved to Ontario in 1962. This picture brought such lovely thoughts of my Mother. Thank you! Marina
