slow-cooked lamb with spring onions, cherries and lemon

Having tested it out when Ana was whooping it up on the island, today is built around the three hours it takes to slow cook lamb shoulder to a point where just touching it with a spoon makes it fall apart.

Davisss makes an excellent point Brenda RE doubling the amount of cherries. This time I used a packet and a half of sour cherries as the fresh ones don't work as well, particularly as the stones are a bugger. It's still not quite enough, and the packets are demi-to-fairly expensive too...

More surprising is the fact not only does Ana like it, but she has two servings which puts my lunchtime left-overs in jeopardy. Luckily there's enough for Milo to have at least one dinner tomorrow.

Food of the Milos
After yesterday's mainly snack-based day, today we have to beat him off the fridge. It's like we've never fed him. He had two breakfasts today - TWO! One consisted of waffle, apple, banana, pineapple and cheese, the other was a medium-sized bowl of last night's ragu. Here's stage one:

Lunch was a slightly more sedate affair of more cheese, tomatoes and grapes, this time in a large cardboard box filled with his animal friends. He had a second bowl of ragu with pasta for dinner, followed by two yoghurts. Maybe he's on a growth spurt? We measured him this morning and he's currently 3 foot 4, and weighs about 20kg.
