Roast Lamb Chops with Brussels Sprouts

I basically followed this recipe from Chef Edward Lee sans the fish sauce, where do you get that anyway?  Ivis and i never had opportunity to go fishing this summer, so there are no fish in the freezer from which to obtain fish sauce.  In place of soy sauce, i use Bragg’s Liquid Aminos.  Additionally, i just sliced the brussels sprouts rather than shredding.  No coriander or chili flakes (my husband is allergic to chili) and i used lemon juice in place of lime and red wine was substituted for the vinegar.  Don’t let the lack of ingredients keep you from trying nifty recipes.  Many can be eliminated or substituted and the dish will be just as great, not to mention your own creation. Go for it!!

Grassfed lamb is one of the most delicious and healthiest meats around.  These chops were raised on a farm just north of us:  Golden Circle Farms, Unionville, MO and are available for purchase in vacuum packed, USDA inspected packaging.  Best way to contact Tom and Laurie Salter is by phone for now:  361-318-7745.  Know your farmer to discover the cleanest and healthiest food for your family.

Beeswax & Homemade Soap

Once a year I make soap.  It doesn’t take a lot of ingredients, but it does take a lot of work, to make several years’ worth of homemade healthy, clean soap that doesn’t dry out your skin like commercial body soaps can.  Many of the ingredients I have to order (i order mine from Essential Depot), but our home raised grassfinished beef tallow and my neighbour’s beeswax are key ingredients as well.

We don’t manage bees on our farms, but our neighbour does and he shares beeswax with me.  Lots of ways to farm. Thanks to our neighbour, Kevin, for caring for bees and their hives and producing great honey. He stopped by last week and gave me some wax.

Agricultural production opportunities abound, but none that i’ve found come without dedication, hard work, and passion. It’s unlikely you’ll become financially wealthy either, but there is more to life than that.

Cheers!
