Chocolate Chip Biscotti
Farmgirl Fare is one year old today!
(And so is Beattie, the surprising star of my very first blog post, An Unexpected Beginning.)
Champagne & Chocolate!
Which is how I'm celebrating my blog's birthday. (Apparently you're allowed to buy your blog a birthday present. Lindy bought hers a plant. I bought mine a bar of fancy organic chocolate--which should make David very happy.)
Weekend Cat Blogging is also one year old!
My WCB post will be up tomorrow, and so will my pal Clare's very special WCB celebration over at Eat Stuff in Australia.
And Lambs! (What?)
I figured I should do a little something special in honor of my blog's birthday, so I'm finally getting around to announcing what the deal is regarding the names for this year's ewe lambs (the boys don't get names). As many of you know, two years ago we realized that it would be a lot easier to remember which lambs were born when if we gave them all names that began with the same letter. So the 2004 ewe lambs all have 'A' names (Annie, Alison, Alisha, Amy, etc.), and the 2005 lambs have 'B' names (Beattie, Bella, Brett, Babsie, Becks, etc.).
That means this year everybody needs a 'C' name--like Chocolate Chip Biscotti above who, appropriately, was born the day after I posted my recipe for Toasted Almond Chocolate Chip Biscotti. Click here to see her the day she was born, and click here for the biscotti post. And then there's little Caraway, of course.
Are you starting to see a pattern here? Yep, I've also decided to choose all food & herb related names. We're not having another Name That Sheep Contest, but I am taking suggestions for appropriate 'C' names. (Cracker, Coconut, and Captain Crunch are examples of inappropriate 'C' names.) I am in charge of all final decisions as well as matching fitting names to each of the lambs. If your name is chosen, you will of course be given full credit. (But you will not be given a little lamb to call your own.)
And finally, C is for. . .
