Lamb Shanks in White Wine and White Beans

Lamb Shanks in White Wine and White Beans by you.

A very relaxing day being a cat, I had a proper lie in and then padded around the house stretching and settling. Listening to the bees buzz and birds sing.   I found some lamb shanks in the freezer and was thinking it wasn’t a season for casserole, but I found a few recipes where they could be cooked in white wine. This long slow cook resulted in melt in the mouth meat and beans dissolving into a roasted vegetablesauce that cried out to be mopped with some crusty bread.
