Sorry for not being around as much as usual lately. I've been completely absorbed with my sweet family! With the birth of our second daughter (birth story to come soon), trying to get a garden in, putting up fencing, buying some goats, and still trying to keep up with all the other household tasks that make life easier I've not had to much time to spend on one of my favorite hobbies... blogging! But I'm thankful to be getting this post in to let you all see why I've been gone! ;-)
Aren't these two little blessings just delicious! ;-) Seriously though... I've just been eating them up! Our oldest daughter loves her little sister so much! She gives her kisses, covers her up when she uncovers herself, and lets me know when she's crying! I love those girls!
Blogging fans meet Miss Sweet Pea! :-) She is my Sweet (fits the blog name eh? ;-) ) little 2 year old milking doe! We've been blessed to be getting 1 1/2 quarts of fresh goats milk daily from her. The rest has been going to her kids... so I think by the time the kids are weened well be getting a gallon or so a day from her! :-) I'm so excited to be trying to make things like cheese, cottage cheese, feta cheese, butter, goats milk soap, ice cream, sour cream, and so much more!!! :-) I'm hoping to be sharing my recipes with you when I succeed in making them!
These are Sweet Pea's babies Mattie (brown girl) and Maroco (black boy).
If you have any recipes calling for goat milk or things that take milk/cream to make please feel free to send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
