Still Milking Two Girls

23 Oct

I am down to milking two girls.  That honestly, is why I put Joy and Zinnia with Xerxes.  It made it easier for me to call them up to milk.

Joy coming up to get milked

Although, the scent the day Joy got bred was a bit overwhelming in my little milk room.  I’ll be sure to freeze that for next year’s kids.

In the milk room.

Zinnia wasn’t as bad.

Zinnia’s turn

I’m not getting a lot of milk, but that’s okay because I don’t need that much right now.

I’ve got the freezer almost full, so it’s mostly just what I need for my daily use.

Broccoli Chicken Penne with Cream Sauce

In a skillet sauté

  • 8 oz. white mushrooms
  • bag of broccoli cuts
  • 2 cups cubed, cooked chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Put this in a 9×13 baking dish with 2 cups cooked penne and add the cream sauce.

Cream Sauce:  In a medium sauce pan, melt 3 Tbsp. margarine and add 3 Tbsp. flour.  Stir until the flour is all damp.  Add 2 cups whole milk and beat with a whisk (or stick blender) to get rid of any lumps.  Add 1 cup vegetable stock, 1/2 tsp. lemon pepper, and 3/4 cup parmesan cheese.  Stir until it is thick and bubbly.

Once it is thick, add it to the baking dish and bake at 350ºF until it is hot completely through.

I will say, I do love this time of year for making creamy soups and other yummy dishes with goat milk.

    Mmmm! Your recipe sounds delicious!!
    It’s good that you’re still getting a little milk. Do you use some of the frozen milk for yourself, when none of the girls are being milked?

      I do freeze pint bags for my use.
