kevinboehm: L33t Squirrel: kevinboehm: It's not all mold, it's just modified by mold. Not all cheese even requires mold. As far as I know, the only things you can't do without in cheesemaking is milk and rennet.

Yeah, true (need moar tea), I got that a bit mixed up. But, still, a lot of 'em do need it at some point, and it's totally weird how we figured out or accidentally discovered how they do that.


Sickapie: Oh, I love cheese! All different kinds in fact. Just not blue cheese. Can't stand the smell or taste.

Hrm, point. It's also a bit too sharp for me as well; I prefer Ranch. I've had a good bleu cheese someplace that didn't have an icky bite to it, but I can't remember where. *Sigh.* Hard to find good salad dressings these days that aren't just HFCS and vinegar. A proper buttermilk ranch is nearly impossible to find...

/pardon the threadjack, I apparently need food as well as caffeine

I have a feeling that it was something to do with not having airtight storage. There are all kinds of critters and microbes in the atmosphere.


And so sour dough bread was born! ( I lurv Blueh cheese!)
LtSq you probably had gorgonzola. Thats good stuff!

The priest at our church suffered the loss of his dog last week. I am thinkingbof sending a poem, but can't decide which one...suggestions from the archivists?

Thanks! You should see my book mark list. Some day I am going to go thru and pick poems, like ripe plums! :)

Heh, or a lack of any kind of covered storage at all. Rum was invented in the 1800-somethings on a Caribbean sugar plantation because yeast blew/fell into an open tub of molasses, which fermented into a kind of beer, which some clever-ass distilled, which eventually became the drink of Sailors and Pirates. :)

Also, it was remarked somewhere on Fark last week that maple syrup (the REAL stuff, not the "maple-flavored HFCS" stuff) doesn't taste like it used to, and some other clever-ass found out that modern methods pipe the sap directly from the tree to the processing area. Old methods just let the sap drip into open buckets. ...So you also got bits of leaves and twigs, bird and mouse poo, other airborne organics... Hurrah for healthy immune systems, yes? :D

Yeah, I hear they make great pets. Some people like brussel sprouts and blue cheese dressing, but I ain't eatin' that shiat either.

Gag. Did you know that the blue cheese in the dressing is mold?.


Oh, yes. WELL aware. To my taste buds, I could take a pair of sweat socks after 2 hours playing hoops, a quart of milk gone WAY bad, throw all that in a blender and it would be a pretty close facsimile to blue cheese dressing. Yeech.

As for George Carlin? Liked him for the most part, but his last few years as an angry spiteful old man I didn't find entertaining.

LOL The Science Channel is showing an episode of How It's Made about making cheese.

One More 2InARow.
Subby for the artisan-cheese article that started that thread did use "Blessed are the home artisan cheese-makers". Knew I'd seen that sentence within quite recent memory. A number of cheeses are acquired tastes, especially Limburger. Had some once, some time ago, thought it was decent but haven't made a habit of it. Fear my rennet tabs are too old to do the trick, but am now aware of a couple places I can get more in case Kroger no longer stocks. Haven't thought lately to look there, but now I will. May have also said, have taken steps to recover the Finn cookbook I Creatively Filed & can no longer locate. There was also a Suomilauluu (Finland Sings) songbook that I haven't seen since we moved from the House InThe City. That, I fear, may not be recoverable.

i51.tinypic.com
Sept 15 either 2011 or 2010. This was mis-saved into a subfolder.

Sub-folder where I saved this reminds me, the Savage Chickens strip yobbery included with "thank you". Surname of the family we adopted Cheeky from is Savage. He, Jim Savage of the Kings Own Scottish Borderers regiment, in which he served, had a pat saying of his own a bit like "110 Miles Behind...". 'Twas "Savage by name, Savage by nature." He actually wasn't except when ordered to be. Mrs. is Cath, the names of their 2 sons will come back some morning at 3 AM. Sons are adult now with families of their own, with the best of British luck. We were back over here before we finally lost touch, they moved once too often & forwarding expired.

Congrats to you gotta sleep sometime for the not-so-subtle green! Hi to everyone else! I don't have much extra time this week to lurk again but I wanted to share this story.

Pico and Corky were properly introduced to each other this week to much pomp and circumstance. Pico wants to play with Corky but she wants nothing to do with him. It often ends up in lots of running around, hissing and growling. I got worried when everything went quiet this afternoon for about an hour so I went looking for them. I ended up in our bedroom closet. Lo and behold, I find them curled up each in their own drawer in separate dressers. I'm not sure if Corky realized Pico was about 6" away from her but when she realized he was there, it got noisy again. Despite the noise, no one wanted to move from their spot. Now I'm going to need to colour coordinate my clothing with brown AND black/white fur.

I can't wait to follow the thread again soon. My thesis should be submitted sometime this week and so I will hopefully be back next Caturday.

I know I'm showing up a little late this weekend... entirely too much loss this Caturday. Especially to whooopappaya and tidtmc, and others I know I am forgetting... I know my words are not enough but I hope time provides healing. yobbery I am glad biscuit is getting better. My two new cats Cash & Carey are fiends about trying to eat non-edible things and I live in constant fear of some sort of bowel obstruction. They just love chewing plastic, doesn't matter how well fed I keep 'em. They also love tearing into bags of cat food, even if they have a fresh bowl of it. They're a pair. So on a lighter note, here's the two of them hanging out in a box:

Sickapie: sherpa18: However, it just now occurred to me that since Dragon has been on Miralax (which I mix with warm water and add to his gooshy food) he has not horked up a single hairball in almost 6 months. Hmmmm.....
Really? I didn't know you could give that to kittehs, much less for hairballs. I usually give that to my daughter when she can't poop. Huh....or maybe I'm thinking of something completely different.


Same stuff. The vet prescribed a 1/4 teaspoon a day to ease Dragon's issues as he is getting older (aren't we all). Miralax is primarily a stool softener/gentle laxative, and while I am in no way, shape or form suggesting it as a hairball remedy, I just found it interesting that since he has been on it, it appears that it may just be a beneficial side effect. I would not recommend giving a cat ANY OTC medication intended for human consumption without consulting your vet. And just FYI, there are certain... consequences to live with.... :o)

lohphat: sherpa18: Miralax is just polyethylene glycol. Just get the generic store brand.

That's what I do, I just thought it would be easier for people to look up the name brand and go from there. Caturday people tend to be pretty smart - a bit gassy from time to time, but smart. ;o)

Those black cats with the toilet roll did do a number on my short term memory; think it's gone altogether.
Forgot to thank predle for the PSed "if you want the rainbow...". Was struck by that quote in the Aussie women's amateur radio newsltr ALARA News, which I get in exchange for the Buckeye Belles Burr. Almost seconds after saving it, sent it to the retiring editor of the News who's also sent me cat pix that I've fetched here.

So do I, but I kinda sympathize with him. It's kinda hard not to take a long, hard look at the world (particularly how much he'd seen and for how long) and not be a bit cynical and bitter. There's so much stupid bullsh*t out there for no damn reason, and humanity as a whole should be better than that. Not gonna get thread-jacky, but frankly, while he did come off as "cranky old man" near the end, again, I don't really blame him. :(

Personally like sardines, but only water-pack or mustard-pack. Oil-pack is too calorific, cajun-sauce-pack is too hot (or was the only time I tried 'em). Don't Ever Do liver of any kind tho the Feline Overlords love it (natch). Like sauerkraut occasionally, esp when cooked with some reasonably low-fat meat or equiv (as turkey sausage). Will eat oysters but not raw. Never had either deer heart or eel. One must hunt, or know a hunter well, to reasonably do deer heart.
Did manage to sorta-move (more like re-save to where they belonged) the earlier-mentioned saved-to-wrong-subfolder.

Suzy had a rough morning too. When we were out this morning she scooped something up in her mouth. I thought I had removed it all but about an hour after we got back she started throwing up.

I have been watching her like a hawk all day. She's back to her old self now. She ate her dinner and is now curled up on my foot.
