I'm late, I'm late (for a very important date!).
I went to sleep last night at 9 pm.
That's NINE. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Anyway....guess what, chikkin butt?
We made cheese!!!
Out of this ...
Can you believe that?
I swear, if I had come on here to say that I won a gold medal in curling, I would not be as proud as I am about making cheese.
And it was easy!
I mean, it took us about 4 hours because we were so afraid of screwing up and we kept reading the recipe 500 times and hovering over it all like a mother hen, but, ultimately, it was easy.
Stretchy, stretchy mozzarella!
Yummy Yummy mozzarella!
And THEN, because we are so damn cool, we made ricotta from the whey!
I won't bother giving you the recipe because I doubt if any of you are going to rush out and make your own cheese, but I will tell you that if you are thinking of doing it you might wanna get this book:
I can't get the damn picture of the book to work right so just click that link and you can read all about it. It's basically a "cheesemaking for dummies" kind of thing, but everything turned out just scrumptious.
So, yea, we made cheese.
Now, I know a lot of people are doing this these days, but we just felt like we had done something miraculous!
What's old is new, right?
I must be wet behind the ears then.
Y'all have a good weekend, OK?
I'm doing a little work on FinnigantheCurious' room.
I might get out and wrestle that jungle of a yard of mine.
I might eat some cheese.
Watch some chikkin TV.
