Easter Roasts

For this past Easter, I made two big roasts - a boneless leg of lamb and a ham roast. The ham was precooked but I adorned it with some good flavorings and then roasted it for a couple of hours. The leg of lamb was a boneless Costco one that was removed from its netting and was butterflied. I bastardized a recipe from America's Test Kitchens. It turned out pretty good but it was hard to tell if it was cooking properly because of some dumb decisions about how long it rest at room temperature and inconsistencies with oven temperatures. I'll have to follow the recipe closer next time. It didn't help that I was trying to cook a ham at the same time! Here are photos...
