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?

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!
