Cheese!!

I made cheese!!! You have to add the rennet and let it sit for 5 minutes. I was so excited, when at the end of that time, I checked it and it had started to thicken! Yay, science. I get that giddy feeling that I have when dough rises. :) Everytime I check bread after the first 1-2 hour rise, I think, "this is so cool! I love science. I can't believe this works everytime." I am a complete nerd. 

I told Jared last night all about cheese and how it is as amazing as bread. He wasn't excited by cheese or bread. Heh. 
It worked!! It starts out runny like this. After kneading it a few times it starts to take on a normal consistency of mozzetella.  

Ignore the spots. I mixed the salt in improperly. What a fun science experiment. I will be trying this out on pizza this weekend. 

While I was kneading the cheese and adding the salt, which took about five minutes. I left Martin in the living room. I came out to check on him and he had fallen asleep in one of the chairs. That is a first. Is it creepy that I just stared at him for about 5 minutes before finding some things to work on while he was asleep? He was just so precious. 

After he woke up, he just wanted to be carried around and held. Since, that is a rare request, I wholeheartedly obliged. Though, I did the math. The two of them together weigh around 47 pounds. That is a lot of extra weight to tote around.
