Happy Monday! | Manolo for the Big Girl

Happy Monday!

So! The mozzarella was a success, even though making ricotta out of whey when you only have a gallon of whey is study in dairy disappointment. I could’ve made more ricotta using a photograph of a cannoli and the power of my mind.

Unfortunately, the tumble I took over those cobblestones a few weeks ago has come back to haunt me in the form of some ligament damage which I’ve managed to aggravate by sleeping on it wonky. This means one of my two favorite hands is out of commission for the time being, so for the next few while I wait for my fancypants voice recognition software to go with my fancypants splint-made-with-a-wooden-spoon-and-some-tape, I’m going to be a bit scarce.

I’ll be back soon!

    Heal fast (and check out wrist splints for sleeping – they aren’t just for geeks anymore)

    NPR had an interview with a Mexican chef today, one of the things they talked about was artisanal cheeses of Baja. If only they knew

    Oooh, sounds painful! Wishing you better, in the meantime, a cocktail a day will keep Plummie OK. Or at least, you won’t care so much.

    Feel better soon! I make paneer at home frequently and tried using the whey to get just a little more cheesey goodness. total fail. I thought it was just because I was using store-bought, pasturized milk, but apparently not.

    I’m so sorry to hear of your fall.

    Cobblestones – hate to walk on them.

    Feel better soon!
