I cooked these lamb shanks for dinner the other night - great for when it's a little cold outside. We've been having very changeable weather lately. It was a lovely hot 32 degrees the other day but now it's back to winter weather.

Easy Dinner Recipe - Italian Lamb Shanks
It's the way to my husband's heart.
Take some lamb shanks (anywhere between 2 to 6 for this recipe) and season them in flour, salt and pepper.
In a pan saute the lamb shanks, onion, garlic and celery with a little olive oil until the meat is browned and the onion mix is transparent. I have used red onion in the photo as it was all I had, but I usually use brown onions. This is one of those recipes where quantities don't matter too much. I only had 2 lamb shanks so I used 1 onion, 2 sticks of celery and 2 garlic cloves. If I was using more shanks I 'd double that amount, possibly not double the garlic though.
all this equals a happy husband...
