Yes, I am an omnivore. No, unless my partner and I get a last-minute invitation for Easter dinner, I shall not be eating lamb.
Lamb of God, yes.
Roasted baa-lamb, no.
And I love roasted baa-lamb. With red potatoes. And mint sauce.

So far it looks like knotted egg-bread (I’d eat boiled eggs if I could stomach them), spring greens, olives, (sheep’s milk) cheese, beets (did you know a “beet is the recommended substitute for the lamb-shank in a Seder?), good wine, and lots of butter.
Oh, and roasted red potatoes with mint sauce.
