Quarantin-easy meal prep from last night - Deconstructed Lasagna
*This was super yummy and I promise it will take you less than 15 minutes and only 6 ingredients!!

Ingredients:

2 - 14oz cans of tomatoes
(you can really use anything that's in your pantry) *I had 2 cans of fire-roasted diced tomatoes that were going to expire - and if we're being completely honest they were already expired but hey they're canned tomatoes (I still have frozen fresh tomatoes from my summer 2019 garden sitting in the freezer so I really need to eat more tomatoes)

1 entire garlic bulb
(from our 2019 farm harvest) - about 6 cloves (but I love garlic) - FYI - we have 165 garlic bulbs in the ground for 2020 so we'll have some in you need some

1 small onion (chopped/diced)

1lb of pasta (you can really use anything here - I choose penne pasta)

2 cups of whey ricotta
(what is whey ricotta you ask?...well you'll just have to ask Your Friendly Farmer for some...or you could just use store bought ricotta but where is the fun in that)

1 cup of parmesan cheese
(I haven't had the patience yet to make this from goat milk so it's store bought)

Directions: Cook pasta per instructions, while the pasta is cooking - cook onions, garlic and a little bit of butter or EVOO and then literally mix it all together and eat! Although you can pop it in the oven for 15-20 minutes to melt it all together. Which is what I did.

If you want the difficult version (or you want to add meat) see full recipe here: https://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipe/deconstructed-lasagna

Weekend quarantine activities:

🌱 Sowed seeds directly outside:
-carrots, beets, radishes, lettuce, spinach, kale, beans, leeks, cilantro, basil, bunching onions & peas (NOTE: These are early spring and although they mate take longer to germinate as long as we give them protection with frost tunnels they should thrive and provide us with some yummy early veggies - radishes only take 3-4 weeks 😜)

Meet Shirley (one of our 3 barn cats) - she is a master mouser and she also feels the need to supervise me whenever I am working on the farm. Shirley, Fonzie and Lavern where adopted approx. 4 years ago when we first moved to our farm and they have been the best barn kitties ever. Our neighbors enjoy their company and are often checking in to make sure all 3 cats are accounted for as occasionally they go on a walk about for a few days but they always know where their true home is. I took this photo shoot of Shirley as she happily played in my raised garden beds that we prepped last fall (with straw, compost and goat manure) for Spring planting in May #farmcat #barncatbestlife

Another quarantin-easy meal - it's not fancy but it's delicious
1. Insta-pot chicken (one of our free-range chickens that we raised on the farm last fall) - 1 onion, rosemary & lemon + 16 minutes in the insta-pot = DINNER TIME
2. Quarantine ready wild rice - Matt stocked up on some rice several months ago so now we have to start using it :)

It's the small things that are exciting to me right now when we're all stuck in the house. Matt set our AeroGarden back up on Sunday (5 days ago) and we already have baby Romaine lettuce sprouts :) *These are great indoor garden options for anybody and they are super easy to use plus you can get all sorts of seed pods (herbs, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.)
*I highly recommend them for kid projects

It's not a great photo but I officially made the American Bee Journal - March 2020 for our award-winning honey 🙂

We're officially sold out of honey but we're ramping up for spring season so stay tuned...if you'd like to be on our waitlist message me or comment with a honey pot below 🍯

**UPDATE: No kids yet...but she only ate 1/2 of her breakfast but now she’s out with her sister munching away on hay so not looking like she’s close (today is day 146)

ANY QUESSES??? Get your official guess in the comments:
🐐 What day & approx time will Cedar have her kids?

🐐 How many kids will she have?

*Kid cameras have been connected all week but no kids yet and Cedar definitely had me faked out this morning since she wasn’t interested in eating all of her grain but I’m sure she’ll wait until the middle of the night or who knows could be days 🤷‍♀️

When you let Tollgate borrow your 2-doe duel milking machine so they can tackle milking 8 does with a little more ease (without the support of the 4-H students during COVID-19)...you get "paid" in ways that non-goat people wouldn't understand 😉

Got to help feed the 12 Toggenburg kids today after we worked on setting up the 2nd milking machine today....priceless

Updates from Chubb E Acres Farm today:

🐥 Baby chicks got upgraded to a larger house but...they got down graded from the house out to the garage 😞
*FYI they aren't really this crowded in their brooder they are just being normal baby chicks and freaking out/crowding to one side during cleaning time 🙂

🦃 Turkeys got a new (fenced) area to roam - since they are not respecting our space - better fenced than in the freezer

🐐 Cedar is definitely getting closer and TODAY is her due date - she's definitely getting closer since she's been more talkative today, clingy and didn't eat all of her morning grain...stay tuned!

🐣 Quail incubator and cages have been cleaned and ready for the 50 quail eggs coming from MyShire Farms 🙂 So exciting

🌱 And the sprouts are almost ready to eat! It's only been 3 days and these are gonna be sooo tasty **SEND me your favorite recipes or uses for fresh sprouts - yum

Welcome to Chubb E Acres Farm!

As promised....a blog post with my favorite (& super easy) goat cheese recipes. If you've ever made home-made cheese post a photo and tell us how it tastes (since we can't actually go out of the house to have a cheese party) #stayhomestaysafe

**Public service announcement...if you're ever curious about what goat milk taste like....never, ever (I'm serious...never EVER) try goat milk from the store. You will regret that you didn't take my advice. Ask your Friendly Farmer for a sample and you will thank me that you did... #freshgoatmilk #goatmelk

What are the 3 things you cannot live without in our “stay home, stay safe” mandating...Click on the link below and comment on your thoughts...

Ok everyone so today is officially Day 1 of our “stay home, stay safe” and other then riding my horse (which I need for mental health) I will be staying in!

So I figured it would be fun to share with you ONE recipe where I’ve used nearly all ingredients from the farm and ONE confession on things I truly cannot live without....comment & share your top 3 must have items below:

Recipe from the farm: spinach, arugula, garlic, onion & chèvre omelette (wow I was amazed at how yummy the frozen chèvre was - 6 months in freeze after vacuum sealing it = success) - everything but the onion is from our farm 😊

Three things I now know I can’t live without & how I will work towards more sustainability in the future:

🥓 Bacon - I’m still working on getting my husband to allow pigs on the farm & I keep telling him that my friends over at Cardinal Farms raise these perfectly size pigs 🐖

🧅 Onions - my sister & I currently have these started for the spring so we are working towards having some for winter storage

🍄 Mushrooms are one of my favorite additions to dishes (esp. eggs) - anyone have any good resources for how to start growing mushrooms?

Guess what I sourced today (thanks to my friend in Ann Arbor)! Hint - it’s not eggnog but it’s super important for newborn goat kids since they get all of their immunity this way...preparing it for the freezer where it’s good for up to a year so we can plan ahead for the next kidding season #kiddingseason #goatkids

A chilly but beautiful day on the farm...my 4 beautiful pregnant does and they’re all due soon!...Cedar is first and technically due 3/25 so the wait is on...she’s definitely wanting more attention from me but I’m going to guess it will be on Saturday when she kids (gives birth) since I’ll be at work then 🥰

Hobby Farm

This Group is to help educate others on the joys of living on the homestead..enjoying organic farm fresh foods and healthy non-toxic living.

Our small hobby farm is home to chickens, ducks, turkeys, Nigerian dwarf goats, barn cats, emus, 1 mini horse, 2 gaited horses, our trusty farm dogs, lots of tiny quail babies & too numerous to count honeybees.

On our days "off" you can find us working on the farm and photographing farm life. My dream is to retire tomorrow and work on the farm sharing yummy organic farm to table food with others.

Hope you enjoy this group and feel free to message me with any questions.

Thanks so much Melissa Lynn Holahan for my goodies. My package arrived today with all kinds of treats for my girls. Super excited 🐔🐓
This morning I was delighted to be a guest at Chubb E Acres beautiful Farm! I was able to snap a "few" photos of the incredibly sweet and silly Goats, the elegant Emu's, the glamorous Turkey's and so many more! Here's a sneak peek of all the fun. Thank you Chubb E Acres Farm ❤️👩‍🌾
I have been following this Farm for a long time and just out of the blue a few weeks back I saw that she was making homemade goat cheese spread plane or flavored so I messaged her regarding on shipping and Etc. Melissa messaged me back within 15 minutes. I'm a True Believer the things are just meant to be. We talked back and forth a few times and the crazy thing is that she is on Grosse Ile once a week weather permitting obviously this time of year. I have cancer so I have been eating organic deit . But this goes for anyone that is interested and it's not crazy expensive like organic foods can be. So I place my order and in a week she was on the island I got two of the flavored goat cheese dips I got a dozen chicken eggs a dozen of duck eggs and 15 quail eggs. Melissa was so kind to throw in a homemade soap and a free chapstick. her Packaging is very elegant I hope everyone please check this site out thank you and thank you again Melissa for all of your time❤❤
My favorite farm 😍 fresh eggs, veggies, fresh EVERYTHING! Beautiful animals loved by the greatest 😘 🐓🐾🐱🐴🦃🐣🦆🌺🌻🥒 did I miss anything? Fanzi is Adams favorite!
