morning. Well, not so much stormy as COLD and rainy and blustry. But you get the idea...:lol:

Baby buckling is doing well. He's almost got the hop-twist-bounce move down. Almost. He can hop....he can twist....and he can move, but not in 1 easy motion. So it's :hop: pause :twist: pause :skitter: :snicker:

He's a soft, curly snot, but his fur is a little prickly. The pure cashmere kids from last year weren't...but we're not making any decisions *yet*. There may be good fiber hiding in all that Alpine hair, and we're willing to give it time to develop. I need to get a list of "foodie" names together...because any Nubian or Alpine bucklings are destined for the freezer, and need call names...I'd rather say "We're having Paneer for dinner" instead of "We're having Fluffy for dinner", y'know?

So, hit me with some foodie-type names. Like, Curry. :grin:

Got my Woodfields mold last night - it's nice. The liner looks sturdy - we'll see. I plan on testing it this weekend, if the weather holds. And if I get my WSP order in (should be delivered today).

Mint sauce -- traditional English accompaniment for lamb.

Matchboos -- The Bahraini national dish, lamb or goat with spices and rice

Haslet (OK, it's usually made with pork, but it's a good name).

Jalfrezi, Korma, Madras, Vindaloo, Biryani -- all types of curry

Kofta, Kebab -- meatball-ish things of Middle Eastern origin, usually made with lamb or goat

Yes! This is exactly what I need - thank you! Of course, I hope I don't have to use many of them this year....I've tried to impress upon the boys that Pink is SO IN this year. :snicker:

Of course, if you end up with an excess of cashmere, I could take some of it off your hands...

I've had no knitting time and precious little knitting inspiration lately. But I do have a pi shawl on the needles.

Moussaka, Rezala, Kashmiri Rogan (great for twins!). India uses a lot of goat meat, as does Greece, you might look to their recipes for inspiration. Good luck on finding the "safe" fiber :)

I was thinking cumin since that's a major component of curry. Maybe some of the other spices would be good names too. Or chili since curry is often hot!

I do know that if I ever have a meat cow it'll be named Stu!
