This was a wonderful stew, and the only things to complain about were things I did differently from the recipe and even so, It was great. Because it was to be the "quick supper before Christmas Eve services," I braised the lamb in advance, then dumped the veggies and broth and wine with the lamb into the slow cooker for an hour on high then on low for 5 hours. The butternut squash disintegrated entirely, but really richened the gravy -- I think next time I'll add the squash later on in the cooking. Also, I don't like sweet potatoes, so I used red-skinned potatoes instead, and used turnips instead of parsnips. It was lovely. I served it with a green salad and angel biscuits and a lightish red wine -- perfect combo.
