Waste Not Want Not – Awesome Orange Ginger Lamb

Last night I made Orange Ginger Drumsticks and the sauce/marinade was divine.  So today, as I was finishing off the last of that meal, I pondered what to do with the tasty, congealed (it had been in the fridge overnight) goodness in the bottom of the container.  In a past life I’d have soaked it all up with rice, but not anymore … and then I had a moment of genius (in an absence of modesty) … add leftover marinade/sauce to the lamb shank in my fridge.
