Lemon Marmalade?

I had lemons and lots of them, so I decided I'd venture out and make some lemon marmalade.

Look how vibrant and pretty it all looks in the pot, it has to be yummy right?

After canning them I opened a celebratory one for breakfast yesterday, only to find that it's bitter! (Duh, you might say, it's lemons!) I put 5 cups of sugar in, I thought it would be sweeter!

So here's where I learn that you have to make many mistakes in life to figure out what you really enjoy-lemon marmalade is not on that list.

Happy St. Pattys Day!

Top of the morning to ya!

Yes, I know I'm a couple days behind, but I wanted to share this pic with you.

Tom was very spoiled:
Corned Beef
Cabbage Salad
French Bread
Au Gratin Potatoes
and some Guinness beer... (shhh that's on the down low)

I thought that since Tom was Irish that we'd go all out. And of course I got mini leprechaun hats to boot! I do love making food that he enjoys, he said this dinner was the most delicious he's had (thank heavens!).

Until next time,

Goats & Kids!

It's true! I'm now a goat owner, but not just of one, but 6!

Tom brought home 2 mama goats a week ago to have as lawn mowers out here on the farm, and they both had their babies a week apart. So now 2 mama goats and 4 kids, whew!

They're so cute. Kids (baby goats) actually hop around and jump sideways, I've never seen anything like it!

This one pictured is our only male and the only multicolor one, the other 3 are girls and white with brown ears.

I feel like we're a real functioning farm now, who knew all I needed were some goats to top it off!
