Cia is sick. Josh is sick. Cash is sick. ‘Please don’t let me get sick. Please don’t let me get sick. Please don’t let me get sick’… my current mantra. Warm meals are cooked when sick, so I’m back to celebrating fall.
Last week as Josh and I were driving into the farmer’s market the first vendor sign we saw was for local goat meat. I knew we both read it at the same time and had the exact same thought. “Are we getting goat meat?” “Yes.” I love that we flow pretty much the same when it comes to food. Me minus the spicy and Josh minus the vinegar. Thankfully two ingredients we can easily work around.
Typically when I buy goat I go for stew meat but I wanted to try something new. The suppliers had just about every part of a goat to purchase and after reading through the list I decided shanks sounded like a perfect start to a crockpot meal. From here a recipe was created.. local potatoes with garden tomatoes, carrots, thyme, and parsley. Along with some onion, garlic, parsnip and red wine. A nice hearty stew of sorts, hopefully to keep me from getting sick and comfort the rest of the household sickies. Please don’t let me get sick!
