I MADE CHEESE!!! Not the greatest picture, but that IS a ball of mozzarella I made with the cheesemaking kit I purchased! I was pretty worried at first: my curds were very soft. I don't think I put in as much rennet as I should have. I was able to save the cheese, though, but letting the curds sit longer, and heating it a bit more very carefully. Poured off all the whey, and started microwaving the curds until I hit the right temp (135). And then....STRETCH! It was so cool! It does pull just like taffy and then it gets shiny. Slapped it back into ball shape and PRESTO! Cheese! It's a little on the bland side (yes, I did use cheese salt), but it is definitely mozzarella. I am so excited!

Oh how routine it has all become.
I'm looking forward to tomorrow. Why? Because it's payday. Which means it's another opportunity to stuff $ into my apartment fund. I also got more hours in on the PT gig than I have been...hopefully this means I can sock away an even bigger chunk.
And then...Thursday. Which I look forward to because Thursday is YOGA DAY!!!

This show on Lincoln on PBS is fascinating. Henry Louis what' has got BALLS. He went to a Confederate Convention in North Carolina to get their views on Lincoln. In case you don't know, HL is a black man. He is basically going into an all white bastion. Well, they just trotted out some black descendents of a slave who saved his master's life several time...huh, very interesting.
Still, hearing these people's bitching and moaning about how if Lincoln had been at Nuremburg trials, he'd have been hung. *rolls eyes* WHATEVER.

Someone brought in some real foul smelling lunch. It smells like overcooked cauliflower and/or cabbage.
I'm outta here for a few!!

The Library

The library is a wonderful place to save money. I have placed a hold for two books that I want, but don't want to spend $ on (since I have that apartment thing obviously).
Tyle Florence: Dinner at My Place
Ricki Carrol: Home Cheese Making
Yes, I am weird. But I have not spent money.
And I will make photocopies and save the cool shit!
