10-10: Roast Leg of Lamb

Due to some infestation-related activity long ago, the Lamb and Veal category suffered some minor liquid damage. Some of the cards are virtually unusable, but this card, 10-10: Roast Leg of Lamb is just slightly mangled.

10-10-roast-leg-of-lamb_page_2Every time I look at this illustration of the jar of mint jelly, it reminds me of a great quote from the Simpsons episode, The Great Money Caper. I saw this episode once in 2000, but the line has stuck in my brain ever since.
