    By 5 hours it needed some more cooking and by 7 hours it was falling of the bone and oh so tender and flavoursome and we all thoroughly enjoyed, served with recipe #408629 made for a very satisfying and filling meal. Thank you Grace Cuderjahn, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.

    Amazingly good! I loved the flavor of the artichoke and olives together with the lamb. Only change I made was to use whole pitted olives and made with two shanks as a very generous meal in itself for two rather than serving over anything.

My husband and I live in boreingly beautiful San Diego County. We are both retired and have been for 15 years. Before we retired I worked and seldom had time to cook or bake. Now I love to cook even thought there is just the two of us. We have three adult children but only two grandchildren. I am a member of Rotary International and join with my club in many service projects. I like to read, to sew and do ceramics but my real love is traveling. We intend to travel as long as we are both in good health. There is so much to see and so many friends we have not met yet.
