Sweet Potato Pancake & Goat Cheese Salad

The day has finally come!
I know, I know (but maybe you dont…) I have been totally slacking on writing about my cheese making endeavors. I promise I will get to it soon! But the excitement I had for this day finally coming surpasses my fear of writing about cheese making. GOAT MILK IS HERE! Noble Springs Dairy has finally gotten all their ducks (or in this case goats) in a row and are finally bottling goat milk. ...
