I will be here in less than 3 weeks!!! I'm really looking forward to it! I am putting together a "Gardening Basket" to donate.
I have a glass pitcher on my counter with kefir grains in it that a friend gave me (originally from Russia). I usually have it covered with that dishtowel. I added about 3 cups of raw milk on Friday after our pickup from Farmer Gary and now it's growing fast. It's full of bubbles. In my cheesemaking book they call it the "champagne" of milk. I mashed up a banana and made a milkshake with it, pretty good...I know it's very good for me! My sister, Susanna lent me her Nourishing Traditions book. On the right side, is a container of "tvorog" that Ludmilla gave me yesterday. She made it using cultured buttermilk. Yesterday we made crepes and rolled tvorog and honey up inside. Yum. I'm going to try to make it myself, following the recipe for cream cheese in Nourishing Traditions!
Lusy loves Thumper and Twinkle, our bunnies. She's always checking on them. They're working hard at making fertilizer for our garden. Smile.
5th week of Great Lent ~ Wednesday - A very quiet day. Snowed most of today. Husband worked from home. I was in bed a lot of today, really wiped out. I don't think I have the flu, just a cold ...
