I have these fantasy's sometimes of making my own butter, cheese, bread, clothes, bean bags & toys, and any other item that seems within my reach of abilities but aren't equipped yet with the rite stuff. While I do do some of these things on that small list I don't claim that they are very good or anything to brag about. ( A recent 6 year old guest said during lunch " I wish you had some regular bread" it hurt a little I admit. )
But I made ricotta today that f'n rocked !! At my workplace there is a free bin & there on sunday night were 4 quarts of spoiled whole milk, perfect for making ricotta. So after lunch today, I found this recipe and made some while hanging out in the kitchen with Felix. I have made ricotta before, but I remembered sitting over the pot for 45 min. waiting waiting waiting, but this seemed so easy. Maybe it was because I didn't have any $ in it or that I'm finally beginning to trust myself. We had it for dinner with fish, capers, tomatoes & couscous. And will have it tomorrow with maple syrup drizzled and maybe maybe I'll try a custard recipe I found. Or what else should I do????
