Yup! It's just that kind of day today...
Sleet and freezing rain.
Which for me, calls for footy pajamas!
Last night we had our monthly Keeper's of the Home meeting.
We had a wonderful time making homemade ricotta cheese and rosemary bread.
Both were delicious!
This is the kit we used for making the cheese. All you need to add is the milk. It's fun and easy...even if you have never made cheese before.
Jean made sure we stayed on track, by constantly checking the milk temps. VERY IMPORTANT!
Time to drain the cheese curds, which is done using cheesecloth and a strainer.
Just look at that yumminess!
You'll have to trust me when I tell you just how delicious this cheese really was.
Everyone was happy to take home a little dish of ricotta.
The bread recipe we used, is one I have used MANY times over. I have also made this recipe using sundried tomatoes and basil instead of the rosemary. It tastes like pizza bread.
The bread recipe can be found on Faye Henry's blog...www.theblessedhearth.blogspot.com

Oh the goodness!
Let me give you a closer look...
Can you smell it?? Mmmm!
Go ahead, have a slice. You won't be disappointed!
