So, I've been experimenting with cheese recipes and I think I can now make a decent Chevre, Mozza and cottage cheese and yogourt. (just googled how I wanted to spell that and came up with this interesting tid bit: an obsolete verb yoğmak 'to be curdled or coagulated; to thicken.) Well, I just ordered more rennet and didn't get the extra thermometer I thought I'd need. I will just continue to use the plug in roaster with a water bath and keep my eye on things better.... I should be doing that anyways right??!!
Mostly, I'm just sitting around, knitting up all the hats I made or promised for Christmas. I wish I could say there was a fire going, but it gets pretty hot in the house these days when its plus 7 or 8 and the sun shines in. Chickens are happy to be out every day, though.
