When Plans Change
I had plans for company yesterday evening (and was planning on tasting the gouda cheese I made 2 weeks ago). But the plans fell through, and a second set of plans for last night fell through as well. So what could I do but use this perfect opportunity to move some dirt?
And so I did. This desk worker doesn't have the stamina to do this for hours. Three loads later (total 6 loads so far), one bed is almost full, one bed is half-full, and one bed is almost empty. And the dirt pile still looks the same as it did almost 2 weeks ago.
Then I brought out the 2 rounds of gouda, washed them in brine and took a small taste of one. Yum. I'll let them age longer. The taste is supposed to smooth out and get softer with time.
