New Recipes

Spaghetti Carbonara Quiche  
Recipe here!
The changes I made were: used broccoli instead of spinach, sausage instead of bacon. I roasted the broccoli, onion, and mushrooms instead of sauteing them.

Almond Butter Brownies
Recipe here!
I doubled the recipe so they would be thicker.

Chix and Veg Soup
This was my recipe as I was cleaning out the pantry....

6 cups chix broth
1 cup coconut milk
16 oz. bag of whatever frozen veggies you like....I used the Mediterranean mix.
6 oz. gluten free pasta
2 heaping T. of garlic
1 13 oz can chix
1 can Chinese bean sprouts
1 can chickpeas
onion powder
plus any other soup seasoning you like
salt and pepper

Mix all together and bring to a boil till pasta is how you like it!

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe here!
Changes I did: I had some leftover hazelnut butter and peanut butter so I just mixed them together, and instead of the coconut oil, I used extra virgin olive oil. Also, made a double batch of these.

Enjoy!  :)

Goat Changes

A lot of changes have taken place in May at Striker's barn, and not all that I have liked, of course, but in a perfect world, I would of made other changes instead....... start things off, I had posted about putting Chloe to sleep because of her not being able to get around and then bringing in the Boer.  Then we bought Rose, a 3 yr young pygmy doe that lost her babies the last 2 years also, she is sweet!  Taffeta wasn't getting along with her that well.  Taffeta was the queen, but with her attitude we went and bought 2 Nigerian Dwarf wethers and the woman we bought them from gave us a free one to save it from the sale barns....thank YOU, Brenda!!  

We get everyone home and think there will be peace in the barn once again.....NOPE...that would be too easy....Taffeta would not get along at all......just her nature and as much as I LOVED her, I knew it would never work out.   Taffeta went back to Jill her previous owner, so now if Taffeta gets lonely, Jill is going to buy her a chicken.....

Now onto the photo's.....(yesterday I went out to take some other ones and the battery was dead in the to buy a back up soon...battery that is.....  ;)

Rose in the front and Taffeta in the back.....just love this photo.  Really sad that it didn't work out with Taffeta!!



Now introducing the boys, we have had them for a week and they are 9 weeks young.  The one on the left is Jasper with Moose.

and this is Jack

Moose and Jasper

Jasper, Moose trying to fly.... :) and Rose.   Jack is in the background.

Rose has her moments with them, but we are trying to get them together to bond slowly.

Will post more photo's later!!    Hugs!!

So we expanded the fencing yesterday to give the goaties more room to play!

This is Rolo, a 5 month Boer, that we borrowed from our friends till we can find a couple more pygmies to go with Taffeta.

Taffeta resting, I feel she is still grieving as I am.  Chloe would of loved this area to roam around in, but she is there in spirit, I'm sure.

The old fence line.

New toys to play on.

Hello Taffeta, our sweet other girl!  mwah!  

Thursday, we are suppose to be going to look at another doe that is 3 yrs. of age.  She cannot be bred also like Taffeta, as she has lost her babies the last two years.  This doe is called Primrose or Rose for short, looks just like Taffeta, as she is coming from where Taffeta was born 8 yrs ago......small world!
