Welcome to DC Joe/Gardenguru!

I have to agree though, this isn't a recipe thread. Most of us know what our recipe is going to be when we post in the daily meal thread. <grin> but I love your enthusiasm!

As for my meal last night...it came out smashing. I made a loaf of italian bread with some wheat bran added for texture and nutrition. The seafood risotto was prepared as a main dish, featuring shrimp, scallops, and lump crabmeat. I'd have added clams and lobster tails if my grocery was somewhat competent about stocking their seafood counter on the weekends.

The crab bisque came out great. I used a recipe that combined crab stock and homemade creamed corn, along with a pound of lump crab meat, for a fantastic soup.

I broiled the homemade bread slices with a spread of fresh garlic and butter.

to to it all off, I still have about 2 quarts of crab stock left! it also came out well. I'd be happy to post/share any of the recipies if there is interest.

I think my next personal milestone is going to be to take the time to actually photograph the meal to share. :)
I'm able to do it, but just never think about it.

I am very happy to report that the stuffed shells turned out, superb. I was a little nervous because I was serving them to friends who hate all things goats; they hate goats, hate our goats, hate goats' milk, cheese and meat. Of course I did not tell them from whence the cheeses originated. Truely some things are best left unsaid

That is another vegie combination that Mark likes. I think it's a matter of taste. Some people don't like celery. I love it that way!

I would be happy with any recipe that used your goat cheese!! I still am amazed at all that you do!
