Happy St. Patty’s Day and almost Friday! No green beer guzzling here, but lots of green pics. Every spring large herds of goats make their way through all the open fields and hillsides here for grazing. They eat wildfire fuel, weeds and thatch to promote new growth and seeing the herds is a cool sight. I had to detour around a few herds on my long training runs and that’s okay since they’re so cute. This week we have a huge herd outside our subdivision and I decided to get out there to snap a few pics while it wasn’t raining for a change, a great opportunity to play with the telephoto lens.
How you doin’?
These two were playing with a block of wood like a soccer ball.
Like me with a few co-workers today. :-P
Wanna play fetch?
I could have watched them much longer, they’re adorable playing with anything that resembled a toy, getting it on, posing for my camera, and racing around chasing each other.
Back at home, I got to unload the fresh farm box sitting our porch. I was thrilled to see it since I haven’t been to a grocery store in over a week! Now I’m loaded with kale, spinach, collard greens, oranges, apples, asparagus and much more.
I had to use some of the fresh spinach in a St. Patty’s day themed skillet socca. I threw a couple of leaves in the Vita-Mix with garbanzo bean flour, dill, water and a little salt.
Then poured the mixture over heated olive oil in a skillet.
I’m still working on my flipping skills. :-)
But it made a great, festive add to my monster dinner salad dressed with a simple Vita-Mix salad dressing of an orange and a chunk of fresh ginger.
Yikes, what a long week. It’s been terribly busy at work, being tired from the half-marathon last weekend and screwed up from the time change has not helped! It’s supposed to rain all weekend here, so I’m looking forward to some down time at home. But now I’m gonna gather what energy I have left to head to the gym.
How was your St. Patty’s Day?
