I was going through some of my old pictures this morning and found a few good ones I never got around to posting before we left America. It made me really nostalgic to look at my own food, which sounds kind of funny I guess, but it's the truth. I really have missed cooking. It's been over a month. Which is grievous.
On a happier note, our shipment of things from home arrived yesterday. It was mostly stuff that doesn't fit in our apartment or that we would never use here, but I did get some kitchen stuff I was immensely happy about. Coffee maker, pot, real knives. I can't wait to start cooking again. I think I'll go to the store tomorrow and get as much food as I can fit in my dorm-sized refrigerator and get to cooking!
So anyways, on to the old pictures and the cheese making!
here and was totally drawn it. It looked so easy!
So I boiled the milk and the buttermilk and some fresh thyme from my garden (oh how I miss my garden!) and salt and pepper.
The taste is kind of tangy, texture is something like a cross between cream cheese and mozzarella. I love this recipe because you can add all kinds of things to it to make it different flavors - nuts or dried fruit, spices and herbs. The website where I got the recipe has some good ideas on what to add. I hope you'll try it!
