12/6/10 – Reverb Writing Prompt #6: Make
Prompt: Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?
The Happiness Project
Oooh – this is easy. I am a MAKER! I would say the last thing I made that was out of the ordinary was the lefse (that I still haven’t posted pictures of, although I have made some progress and actually gotten them off the camera). The materials were simple. I did the cheating version and used potato flakes, butter, salt, milk & flour. Next time, I am going to do real potatoes, just to see the difference.
I am really looking forward to making some more cheese. My first batch of cheddar was tasted (by me & the architect) last Thursday, and promptly thrown out. That wheel had been a problem wheel from the beginning, and I was not terrible surprised when it turned out so badly – just disappointed.
Cheddar wheel #2 will be tasted this weekend, and will hopefully be much better. BUT – as soon as I’m done with the next week, I will have time for a bit more cheesemaking, and am really looking forward to that!
In terms of making something new, I am excited to brew up an inaugural batch of beer – another holiday project we’re going to try!Follow me on social!
