Well, Santa brought my wife some nifty cheese making equipment - a steam table, various other pots and doo-hickeys. On the 27th, we hit the grocery store, where she bought 18 4l. bags of 1%, 9 4l. bags of 2% and 6 4l. bags of 3.5%, as well as 5 or 6 l. of whipping cream to adjust her fat content (sorry, the milk's fat content. If you read this, honey, I'm really, really sorry about the mistype
). Anyhow, she is making more parmesan, some cheddars, a Gruyère, and Lord knows what else. She also made some delicious Chèvre, some cream cheeses, and a few others over Christmas.
BTW, in November 2012, she made her first Parmesan, and we tried it over the holidays. it is fantastic. She made 3 wheels of it, to share amongst our kids and ourselves. Anyhow, here are some pics of her hard at work. Oh, yeah, and life can be soooo unfair. She was in the basement having fun making cheese, and I was doing dishes and cleaning the house.
