Today on the menu is Lamb Shanks in Red Wine

I try to shop very little once Christmas has arrived; all food shops seem to be just too manic with everyone stocking up!
So in January we can use up what we have stored (just like squirrels!!)
Yesterday I found three large lamb shanks in the freezer. It’s taken ages to find a really good (read quick and easy, also tasty!) recipe but I found one on this blog
I didn’t amend it too much as I had all the ingredients to hand (for once!) but I did add some anchovy sauce. I’m not sure why I first bought it but I do remember making a leg if lamb recipe by Lorraine Pascale where you stab the leg and insert anchovy fillets before cooking. I thought it would be weird and fishy but actually it was just deep and meaty!
It’s in the Aga now so these are ‘before’ photos do I’ll post back with ‘after’ pictures tonight!




About weheartcards Esther Warner started designing cards several years ago, then in 2003 she returned to University as a mature student, completing an IT degree. Since then she has developed her passion for paper and creativity by computerised card-making. In the corporate world she was awarded ‘Worcestershire Businesswoman of the Year’ in 2005 Esther says, “When was little I loved getting post. The excitement of getting a letter or something delivered to my door when it WASN’T my birthday or Christmas was really exciting. Wondering who had sent it and what it could be…. The anticipation of opening the envelope to discover what was inside was thrilling! ” In later years Esther was very homesick at boarding school and the daily post distribution became the most exciting part of the day. Each card from we♥cards is filled with love and made for the recipient personally, Esther hopes that they convey the excitement she felt when she was small and received a letter from her Grandma!
