Ricotta cheese was made. Oh my gosh, I had no idea how good ricotta cheese can be. I say "can be" because I've tasted other homemade ricotta cheese and it was just okay. But this, no credit to me, is fabulous. Following the recipe at smitten kitchen, I used our raw cow's milk, store-bought organic cream, and fresh organic lemon juice. It was good by the spoonful and on toasted sourdough bread with caramelized onions and chunky sea salt. It was good dolloped in homemade pumpkin soup. It was good with honey drizzled on top sprinkled with chunky sea salt. It was good. And then it was all gone. More, please.
I don't know about you, but January and February went by way too fast for me. January usually seems to last f-o-r-e-v-e-r, what happened? Then February whooshed by. I have high hopes for the month of March, a full-count month. 31 days.
Thanks for visiting and happy weekending to you! xo
