Adventures in Dairyland

Yes, it's February 2012. I know. But no matter how well we plan, sometimes busy parents have to let some things slide, and in our case, the blog, and along with it, Au Lait Du Mois slid most easily. So it took us 14 months to complete all twelve fresh cheese and dairy treats from the Gourmet Home Dairy Kit and post about our experiences, but we finally did it. Guess why we suddenly finished at the end of February 2012 instead of, say, the beginning of March or 2013?

Check out the last comment on my Panir post. Yup. Being asked to be a guest blogger by the New England Cheesemaking Supplies folks is to amateur cheesemakers, as an Oscar is to an actor. Ooo . . . now I want to carve a statuette out of cheese.
Unlike an Oscar winner, who gets a dust collector which technically, they can't even sell to the highest bidder when things go south, I won a 30 Minute Mozzarella & Ricotta Kit with which I can make up to 30 batches of mozzarella. Take that Meryl Streep.

Now, to be honest, prior to receiving this award, co-blogger Rebecca and I had planned to focus on mozzarella this year, as evidenced by my Hanukkah/Christmas/Solstice/Kwanzaa/New Year 2011 gifts to Rebecca: 10 Tablets of Vegetable Rennet, Cheese Salt, and Citric Acid. If you already have the butter muslin and dairy thermometer from following along on our Au Lait Du Mois adventure, those three ingredients are all you need to embark on our mozzarella journey.

For your consideration, here is a list of all of our Au Lait Du Mois posts:
