Auntie Emo: Does anyone have a recipe for chicken cacciatore with shrimp? You cook it in a slow-cooker. I've only lost two favorite recipes over the years and this was one of them.

PICK OF THE WEEK:
P. M. of Ketchikan said they always celebrate St. Patrick's Day with the traditional corned beef dinner, which wouldn't be complete without Colcannon.
4 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2 inch pieces 1 pound cabbage, cut into fine shreds 1 cube butter 1-¼ cup milk (or chicken broth) 1 cup sliced green onion
Place potatoes in pan, cover with water and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 10-15 minutes. Drain, place in bowl, mash and cover. Add cabbage and butter into pan used for potatoes, add green onion and cook over medium high heat until cabbage is well wilted, about 8 minutes, stirring often. Heat milk or broth till simmering. Stir into potatoes, add cabbage and onions and stir till smooth and evenly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
