"I am Cecily Grace. My parents tell me that I am a miracle and overcame huge obstacles after arriving three months early. I STILL like to get up early!
My sister-in-law, Sierra, helps me create these joyful flowerpots. Red is my favorite color and bright colors make me happy! Hope they make you smile too."
In spite of Cecily's disabilities, she is sweet, spunky and a joy to be around! She loves crafts and being with her "helpers." My daughter-in-law came up with this idea as a way for her to share her joy and love of crafts. Cecily is thrilled to be able to start her own business!
Each flower pot is designed by Cecily and she chooses the colors used. Her flower pots will be available in our on-line store and will continually be updated. The flower pots will also be available in our farm store this spring. Her first flower pot was shipped out to Masschusetts this week!
To put it in Ceci's words, "I hope they sell quickly so I can make more!" More varieties, including painted ones, will be posted as soon as they are created.
It is a true pleasure to see her excited and full of life for this new endeavor!
Check back frequently as new flower pots each with a unique design will be posted. And if you have a special request, let Cecily know!
A few weeks ago, I posted about macaroni and cheese that I made using our fresh goat milk. Several of you requested the recipe, so here it is!
CHICKEN MACARONI & CHEESE WITH GOAT MILK
3 C gluten-free elbow macaroni noodles
4 1/2 T butter
1/2 C finely chopped onion, or use dehydrated onions in a pinch
3 T flour, use gluten-free blend if desired
1 tsp salt
dash of pepper
3 C fresh goat milk
3 C cubed cheese, I use a variety but always include cheddar
1-2 cans cooked chicken (I use Costco canned chicken as a short-cut, but any cooked, cut-up chicken would work.)
Cook marcaroni according to package directions; drain. For cheese sauce, in a saucepan melt butter. Cook onion in butter till tender but not brown. Stir in the flour, salt, & pepper. Add goat milk all at once; cook and stir till thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes more. Add cubed cheeses; stir till melted.
Stir macaroni into cheese sauce. Add cooked chicken. Turn into a casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes or till heated through.
