Sakonnet Farm is becoming a reality

I don’t think I’ve posted in a week- and I really miss it. But, thinks have been crazy over here (that’s not new) in a very different way. Monday night we bought Maggie- out new goat. She is so cute- I have a couple great stories to tell, but I’m so tired I can’t type tonight, they will have to wait.

Then Friday we got a shipment of day old chicks. We got 25 RI reds, 25 meat birds, 25 Top hats, and 10 Mille fleurs. This shipment is not going so well. We have lost 6 of them already. We tried a different company this time, mistake I think. Mostly we have lost the mille fleurs, they were so much smaller than the others.

So, that’s going to have to be all for me tonight. I do have a couple good recipes using my lime basil to post. And I’m planning a eggplant parm cook off Tyler Florence vs. Better Homes & Gardens. (Guess who’s going to win that, duh!?!?)

And I’m SO excited to announce that I met AND BEAT my goal of the grocery challenge last month- I come in just under $400!!! WOO – HOO!! I didn’t think it was going to be possible. SO cool!!
