We didn't have any shallot, so...

I can remember when I was 7 years old and I would help my mom feed newborn lambs, and Jared talks about the...

We've had the privilege of having Stephanie Potter, a local health and lifestyle coach, put together some great recipes using our beef and pork.  She is great at incorporate vegetables with her meals and we love that!
