Thursday, Cheese Day, June 10, 2010

My "to do" list today was bigger, but Cyndy, the lady who cleans, showed up when I wasn't expecting her till NEXT Thursday, so I had to scurry around putting up clutter.

In between all that, I made a batch of feta and a batch of camembert. The feta is ready, and I'll bring some to you tomorrow or whenever is convenient.

The little camembert rounds are SO CUTE! I'm hoping they get nicely moldy by the time Cole is here. That's "Gran's White Goat Cheese."

Cheesemaking is labor intensive, especially with two batches going. There's frequent temperature checking, stirring, additions to the milk, timing each stage, etc.

I got *none* of the outside work done, but I did make a back up table cloth for the little outside table and a sleeveless shirt.

Also, I've made contact with a geriatric specialist in Jonesboro and one in Mountain Home. Dr. Thompson's office lied about Lonnie's health insurance not covering him if he went into Arkansas.

We're waiting to hear about an appointment in Mountain Home. He has one in Jonesboro, but it's not till mid-July.

I made four little goat cheese and Swiss Chard quiches for lunch. WOO HOO!

It was a good day, just not quite what I'd planned.
