Treat everyday as a new adventure

Back to Basics

I love to make things, create things, and grow things. Last week was a good week for doing everything.

First, I made two pints of yogurt. Love homemade yogurt.

I’ve been growing pickling cucumbers, so I’ve made a couple of quarts of refrigerator pickles. The recipe I used is here.DSC_0002 (4)

And I’ve got my radish seeds sprouting so I can have fresh sprouts on sandwiches. (Also great in salads!)

And then yesterday, I decided to try a recipe for Queso Blanco. Find it here. It was relatively easy. (I quartered the recipe, though and only used 4 cups of milk. and 1 1/2 T. vinegar.) My son said that it needed a little more salt. Next time. 🙂 It turned out good and I used it in the cheese enchiladas that I made for dinner. I’m going to make this recipe next! Check out their site for more great recipes!

Four cups of milk doesn’t make a lot of cheese. So next time I’ll use 1/2 a gallon.

Well, that’s it for today. Hope all of you have a great productive week.

I’ll see you soon and till then, HUGS!
