  • That looks amazing. I may have to make a trip to Market Basket to get that bread. I made my own fig/date/plum preserves last week. I bet it would be great with this.

  • I eat virtually everything. But there is a molecule in goat cheese that makes my brain say “DANGER DO NOT EAT!”. After looking at this I am willing to give it another try.

    What’s that word that everyone hates? (So that makes it my favorite word.) This breakfast toast is AMAZEBALLS!

      • My mother raised goats the 4-nubians (registered back in 70′s-80′s on the farm)…So lot’s of miliking in morning before school and after put them in pen. Goat milk is good for ulcers stomach, and does have a flavor of it’s own based sometimes on what the goats eat. The milk is more expensive also mom sold hers…Didn’t mind just the milk but I did not like it in my coffee…When flies come around while milking watch out as they land on hind leg of goat lift leg and seemed to always kick over the milk bucket when almost full what a mess you and the location milking. Watch your tree’s close to fields where you put them love to eat the leaves and peel the tree bark and eat it even with a full field of nice lush grass..:-)

        P.S. Stay away from the male billy goats – Phew and rub off the musk have to wash the clothes – they are a strange lot for sure! :-)
