Well it’s officially been 1 year since my last day in corporate america. It’s strange to think that a year has already gone by since I left MEDITECH but it also seems like light years since then. Well tech’ers I hope y’all are getting on without me, because I won’t be back! Retirement is the life for me!
This weekend the muscadine wine was ready to be racked into a carboy to sit for 4-6 weeks. Here it is resting up.
Today I started the adventure of making hard cheese which is much more complicated than soft cheese. I decided to start by making a Colby cheese following the recipe on cheesemaking.com. Even if you don’t have a cow or a goat giving you milk, you can still make your own cheese at home with store bought milk or milk from a local farm. Just throwing that out there in case anyone was looking for a new hobby!
Tomorrow I will salt the cheese in a brine and then the following day I will wax it before letting it sit for 4-6 weeks until aged to perfection (I really hope!).

On another note, if anyone is feeling inspired to make their own bar soap, toothpaste, deodorant, liquid hand soap, laundry detergent, shampoo, dishwashing detergent, dog treats, greek yogurt or cheese, I have recipes for all of these things that I make on a regular basis that I would be happy to share. If you make it yourself, you have a better idea about what’s in it! Live long and prosper!
And here are some pictures of Maggie eating hay. She looks like a dinosaur from The Land Before Time.
See the resemblance?
