Going to a friend's house today to give a cheese lesson.  We'll be making mozarella (because its quick and easy) and ricotta, because it shows all the steps to a harder cheese (like chevre) but in a much shorter time.

Spent some time in the garden yesterday, and picked a huge amount of  cukes, yellow squash, and tomatoes.  I can't do anymore pressure canning until I get a new gauge for my pressure canner (its on its way).but the cukes will become my garlic dill pickles, and the tomatoes will go in the freezer until I have enough to make a big batch of tomato sauce.  I love this, because all you have to do is rinse them under water, and the skins fall away.  It makes them much easier to mill after if I want to get the seeds out!
