Sometimes being a lawyer is hard. Sometimes the hours are long. Sometimes I dream of being a full-time cheesemaker.
Today was one of those days.
Today was also a day when I remembered the batch of herbed goat milk mozzarella sitting in my refrigerator. What a wonderful way to end a rather tedious day.
Over the weekend I attempted a rendition of Ricki Carroll's "30 Minute Mozzarella" recipe with goat milk. It didn't exactly go smoothly but the end result, after lots of herb de provence and 2 days of resting, was quite tasty.
I sliced a baguette and placed the cheese on the little slices and then melted them in the oven. Oh how delicious it was. At that moment I forgot the trial from this morning, I forgot all the client emails I didn't return and I forgot that long list of tasks waiting for me tomorrow morning. Such a simple pleasure but it quickly lightened my mood and brought a smile to my face.
