Food for Thought: You will have plenty of goat's milk to feed you and your family. Proverbs 27:27 NIV

Tips: Talk with the family about goats and visit a farm or petting zoo with goats. Children may wish to glue pictures of farm animals on the corner of paper napkins.

1- 6 oz. container of plain yogurt

Pour into jars and place into yogurt maker until thick-approximately 8-10 hours. use yogurt as you would any yogurt or sour cream. (If do not have yogurt maker, pour into jelly jars and place in slow cooker with low heat until thick-approximately 4 hours.)

Chicken Pot Pie

1 deep dish pastry crust
1 cup biscuit mix
1/2 cup goat yogurt
2 cups mixed vegetables
2 cups chopped chicken
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup flour

Cook vegetables or used canned mixed vegetables. Cook chicken and chop. Whisk 2 cups of cooled chicken broth with flour and stir until thickened. Mix chicken, sauce and vegetables together. Pour into a deep dish pastry crust. Mix biscuit mix with yogurt. Spread over the top of the chicken pie. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until crust browns.

Corn Bread with Yogurt

2 cups corn meal mix
1 cup goat yogurt
1 egg
1/4 cup corn oil

Heat oil in the bottom of seasoned black skillet.(Do not burn oil.) Mix corn meal mix with yogurt, egg and mix well. Add more milk or water if too thick. Add oil and mix mixture well. Pour into black skillet. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve warm.

Celery Sticks

Clean celery ribs and cut into strips. Serve as salad with chicken pot pie.

Cheese Candy

1 cup goat cheese
4 cups confection sugar
1 cup marshmallows
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup cocoa
1 stick butter
1 t. vanilla extract

Melt butter in microwave: approximately 1 minute. Stir in the cheese until melted or blended. Add vanilla flavoring. Mix cocoa with sugar. Add to cheese mixture and mix well. Add nuts and marshmallows. Spray 9"x13" casserole dish. Press mixture into the dish. Cool and cut into squares. (if mixture too thin, add more sugar. If mixture too thick, add milk.)

From Nutritionist: Homemade yogurt is fun and easy. Use it as you would any yogurt. May substitute for sour cream or milk in recipes. Goat Milk is high in protein, yet low in cholesterol. People with digestive problems often find goat milk more palatable. Chicken pot pie crusts/toppings may be made with yogart. The chicken is an excellent source of protein yet low in cholesterol. The vegetables are sources of vitamins and minerals that maintain proper mental and physical health. Candy is high in carbohydrates but provides sources of protein with the cheese and nuts. Butter gives the required amount of fat. Do not forget to take a brisk walk or visit a goat farm or petting zoo as part of your healthy exercise.
