Sunshine After Rain and a Shredded Goat Fry Up

We’ve had one of the wettest winters in decades! Entire days of non-stop downpours.

It’s been wonderful for filling up all our water tanks and the pond, and now we have little waterfalls running through paddocks and down to the dam. Love it. 🙂

I’m not the only one loving this chance to muck around through puddles in my wellies, our dog Luna is in puppy heaven!!

I took her for a walk the other day and kept bursting out laughing as she ran in circles like a mad thing, attacking rivulets of water as if they were dangerous enemies, splashing through pond and creek as if she was the happiest creature on earth.

How I love her joyous abandon. 🙂

Although the sun is back, the weather is still chilly, so I’m relying on hearty dishes to keep us warm.

This is one of my favorite goat meat recipes, mostly because it’s so savory yet easy to make. It’s an especially good way to use up left over roast goat.

Simply fry up onions and garlic until the onion is caramelized. Add shredded goat meat, salt and pepper, and fry until meat is heated through and starting to brown. We like it by itself or served with boiled potatoes, or piled on toasted bread for a nice open-faced sandwich.
