It's time to Eat!

A very delicious treat my wonderful wife concocted. The Whole Foods butcher accidentally gave me ground chicken instead of chicken breast! No worries Amanda sauteed the onions and ground meat in butter and Marsala (a sweet cooking wine traditionally used in Sicily for chicken marsala). She added grilled Portabellos, italian spices, and garlic to the mix. A quick and easy treat, very tasty!

Here is a salad Amanda made with cucumbers and heirloom cherry tomatoes from the farmers market. For the dressing she used olive oil, nasturtium vinegar (a gift from Amanda's mother inlaws garden!), and grated fresh ginger root.
Served with a meal I slow cooked in the dutch oven. 3 pounds grass fed goat shoulder from the farmers market (I will make sure to get the name and contacts of the farmers at the market next week). Topped with grilled onions, slow cooked carrots, sweet potato, and a yummy pepper from the garden. To see the basic formula for slow cooked meals read this post.

This salad is a true work of genius, only Amanda could concoct. She chopped Kale and Swiss chard from our garden. Added some Purple Cherokee heirloom tomato slices from the market. Olive oil and vinegar with pressed garlic and grated ginger for the dressing. To top it off she added Nasturtium flowers from our garden! They are actually quite tasty too...
