Browned some beautiful lamb shanks in the slow cooker then threw in the prerequisite carrots, celery'n onions. Some broth, some garlic, rosemary and parsley. At the end I added some left over potatoes found at the back of the fridge. Thickened with Potato starch. Started that up for my visiting daughter.
I had mussels (she won't touch them)
Small chopped romas, jalapeno, garlic, cayenne, paprika, lil broth. I also threw in some tiny frozen pearl onions, just to be different.
think that one whole (seeded) jalapeno was a bit much, it was spicy!!! I used the whole thing because it was quite aged and I thought they lost their heat with time... guess not!
I still have 2 more meals from the mussels to go... will try to make them different, maybe one with bacon & cream? Heard of that many times but not tried it yet.
