Gabbi's Boys and LowCarb Lasagna

On Wednesday evening, Gabbi freshened with 3 bucklings. Her TN family is having a hospital stay,so she is back staying with us for a couple of weeks.

Now we have 5 young bucklings running around and Jack couldn't be happier.

Jack lays down and hopes the babies come over to him.

If the babies walk away, he begs them to come back.

Tennessee Sandy suggested we go on a lowcarb diet. Sandy and I also work together now and usually can go to lunch together so encouraging and comparing notes makes it fun.

This morning I decided to make a lowcarb lasagna. I have cooked gound beef as the bottom layer and added cauliflower. I did not blanche the cauliflower because I like to keep some of the texture.  The marinara sauce only has 4 carbs.

I now have added ricotta cheese and the marinara sauce.

Mozzarella and garlic and herbs.

Mike has now had 3 helpings and says it is an award-winning, Iron-Chef worthy dish. And yet, I forgot the put in the PARMESEAN!!!

Other exciting news, brother-inlaw, Charles, fixed the motor on the hay conveyer (hadn't worked for years). Here is 79-yr-old father-inlaw, James, loading the bales while Mike was catching 'em in the hayloft.

Thank you Charles for fixing that old motor, and thank you James for helping get the bales put away.

 There were spies watching as the bales went up.

 Quickly and easily, all done.
