Oh, thank you! I am doing a "Murder Party" for eight people set in Victorian times at a Mesopotamian archaeological dig. I wanted to do a roast in the crock pot, and I think a Mediterranean flavor to it will be perfect.


Edited: It was wonderful! My guests scarfed it down and I only got to sample the scraps on the cutting board, but boy were they flavorful! I'm doing this again for another group this week. Thanks for the recipe!
