Kids - both the goat and the people kind. We got to spend the afternoon with some friend's goats. Both the girl and I were smitten. The mower broke a week later. My solution?

Spring Eating: The big freezer is empty, and only a few freezer meals and a handful of base ingredients remain, so I mostly get to cook with fresh ingredients: greens, asparagus, eggs and goat cheese are frequent guests at the table.
