Have you ever heard of fainting goats? Below is a video about them, if you haven’t. Basically their muscles freeze for around ten seconds when they’re startled.
You probably guessed it already, but the goats that I run past are fainting goats! They don’t faint quite like the ones on the video, because they can kind of build up a tolerance meaning they don’t fully faint. So when I run by and they’re at the fence, they turn to run around and their hind ends go stiff but their front legs still work. So they “half faint”. It makes me laugh every time!
This evening my in-laws are coming by for dinner tonight. They are on their way home from a trip and our house is on the way! It’s always nice to see them. I’m making cornbread chicken pot pie for dinner.
It’s a recipe out of my Campbell’s Casseroles, One-Dish Meals, and More recipe book that my grandparents got me for Christmas back in 2008. This is one of our favorite simple dinners. The only thing I change from the recipe is I don’t top it with cheddar cheese. The pot pie itself has chicken, corn, and cream of chicken soup and is topped with cornbread mix. I made tonight’s pot pie with sweet corn from last fall that we vacuum packaged and froze. One hundred times better than store-bought corn!
Have you ever seen/heard of fainting goats before?
What is your simple, go-to, family-favorite dinner?
Do you ever get “farm fresh/garden fresh” foods? Do you have a garden?
We don’t have a garden, but Barry always brings home sweet corn from the farm in the fall.
