I have been wanting some pictures of Gabby to use in our etsy advertising and thank you cards, so while I was out taking pictures of the fish, I took some pics of Gabby. I think they turned out cute.
I experimented with making cheese this week, which was pretty cool. I made some soft cheese (I can't find the pictures of it, I must have them on the other camera - we have 2 cameras, one that is mom and dad's and one that is Justin and I's, but they are exactly the same, except ours has the shoulder strap, so it gets confusing - which camera was I using??), which was a basic white cheese, and it turned out pretty good, it needed a little more salt, but it's good! We've enjoyed snacking on it. Its definitely something I would make again. The other cheese I made was a "Chevre" or "fromage blanc" but it didn't turn into cheese so much as it did REALLY good sour cream. The whey didn't seperate very good while it was hanging, so we just mixed it in really well, salted it, and saved it for sour cream. Its good! I put part of the recipe into molds though to make chevre, which is supposed to be a cream cheese like spread made from goats milk. It isn't done yet, so I don't know how it is. (If you hang the mixture it is fromage blanc, or "bag cheese", but if you put it in molds and let it drain it is chevre). It's fun, I can't wait to experiment with more of this stuff. Plus its SO great to be able to eat dairy again, and not get so sick. I haven't been able to have butter, milk, sour cream, cream cheese, etc. without getting so sick. The goat milk is wonderful!
