Another odd day in the No Grocery Store House. Waking up to the news that we’d had 15 inches made me feel as if I’d really been through something. ! Right, OMG! But I slept through the whole thing, and missed it completely. I can’t sleep through total silence, but a raging thunderstorm, and I’m in a coma. Go figure.
No breakfast. Black bean soup for lunch. Actually, the same batch of black beans I made the other day, just re-purposed into soup by pureeing the whole lot.
I had a pound of ground goat from Premium Lamb, in my freezer, as well as a pound of ground pork from Richardson Farms. I thawed them to make goat/pork burgers with on Monday, and didn’t. So, I needed to get them cooking today.
First, I sweated some onions and garlic as I chopped and added peppers.
I tossed that mixture into the slow cooker with a jar of Larry’s Fire Roasted Tomatoes, from Boggy Creek Farm.
Then, I cooked the goat and pork in a pan, adding the seasonings as I went. I prefer to season the meat, than the sauce. I used the Penzy’s spices I ordered months ago. They make a Chili blend, Adobo powder, Cayenne Pepper, Cumin and salt and pepper. Tasted fine at this point.
Next up, I chopped up several farmer’s market tomatoes and added them to the mix. I covered it, set it on low, and let it simmer for 4 hours. I ran errands, did all kinds of stuff away from the house, and magically, when I returned the house smelled great and the wonderful food is ready. Dinner is served, topped with some Full Quiver cheddar.
