Udderly Delicious: Lemon Ice Cream with Blackberry Sauce

(pardon my chipped bowl)
I'm torn on how to label this. It's part Udderly Delicious, part Quick Eats, and part Homegrown. Regardless of the label, it's really freaking tasty.

Sadly I didn't take any photos of the process, so this will be a relatively wordy post. My family was in town for their first visit to the farm and, after K and my father went on an epic berry picking expedition which ended with about three pounds of blackberries being collected, I figured we should put them to use.

The next night I was going to cook up a turkey that we had raised. My sister from over at Fancypants Tris suggested making a blackberry and chipotle sauce for the turkey, but I decided to do a straight up brined and roasted turkey.  While the turkey was roasting, I figured I might as well put some more of our goat milk to use and thought some ice cream might be worth trying.

Udderly Delicious: Mac and Goat Cheese

Mac and cheese is probably the ultimate in comfort food. Warm, rich, satisfying. Nothing says "home" quite like a hot bowl of mac and cheese and, since we're still discovering the joys of our new home, it was perfect.

This is a fun recipe, full of room for experimenting and very forgiving. I use homemade pasta made with duck eggs from our flock, and three kinds of homemade goat cheese  and milk from our wonderful little goats that we're celebrating in this series.
