Lots has been going on lately. I've been busy with work, and poor Fiona has been having some issues. She keeps grabbing her tummy and curling up. We have no idea what is going on, and are working with her pediatrician to try to figure it out.
Amidst all the craziness a friend and I took a cheese class (# 28). So much fun! I'm hoping to make my own marscapone cheese to use as frosting for Fiona's first birthday cupcakes.
We took the class at Sur La Table, it was the first time I've taken a class there. The class structure is a little weird, its hands on, but not everybody gets to make something. I helped measure fore the marscapone, and rolled the mozzarella, and I made butter. I would have liked to have made more of the cheeses, but there is only 4 burners and 16 people in the class.
The instructor, Peter.
Making the mozzarella. Fresh mozzerella is sooooo good!
The butter I made!
The ricotta draining.
I would loved to have taken more photos. But one of the others students got all pissy that I had a large camera. She didn't care that other people had point and shoots, but for some reason my camera bothered her. I even tried staying on the opposite side of the room of her. But she complained and one of the assistants asked if I would mind putting my camera away. I was a little irritated but whatever.
I still had fun taking the class, and I was surprised how easy it was to make cheese. I look forward to making it in the future.
