Say "Cheese"

It probably isn't a good idea to blog while you're heavily medicated with pain killers. But I have been wanting to share this forever so I'm going out on a limb and praying I don't type anything that can be held against me later! Besides, I'm stuck in bed with nothing but a laptop. How many games of Solitaire can I play today? So without further drug induced rambling  ado, here's the pix of my first cheese making attempt.

I started out trying to make a basic cream cheese but I didn't have all the proper equipment and my milk supply is so small that I had to halve the recipe. And I'll blame those two factors on why I ended up with a semi-hard cheese. But I can't complain, it was definitely a good learning experience! And it's yummy-so far we've had it on scrambled eggs, pizza, salad, and just a plain old fork. I'll call that a win!
 And since I'm saying "cheese" anyway, I went yesterday to have pictures taken of my back. Hopefully the results will show the doctor where to give me a shot that will eliminate this pain and I can get back to real life!

  1. Looks really good, I have never made cheese as we don't have any milk but find the whole process fascinating.


Tell me what you think, what you know, what you want to know. I love your comments! I read them all and will try to answer any questions.
