Last evening was pretty busy.

It started as I was finishing up at work; forestcats called me to urge me home quickly as the Crepes Bonaparte truck was going to be nearby, parked a few blocks from Cal Poly Pomona. She wanted to get dinner/dessert from them, but was afraid that there'd be a long line, and that the food would run out. I hurried home, and off we went.

The truck was parked in the lot of a shop that apparently sells used textbooks for the student body of the college; being August, they were closed for the season. There were a few folks present for the crepes, and we chatted with a couple who'd been eating across the street, and they'd hurried over to get dessert crepes. My wife and I each had a savory crepe, and then followed that with dessert. Very nice.

Then, she took me to Amy's Farm, where she proceeded to milk. A couple gallons later, we returned home, where my beloved got down to the business of cheesemaking. We finished another Netflix disc of Fringe, and a bit of streaming, to complete the evening.

Yum. Fresh-made cheese!

Amy's Farm looks awesome - I might have to see if I can get the kidlet and myself out there for a tour before summer's over...

Be sure to say hello to Honeybun (the present milk cow for the milkshare crowd), Guinevere, the previous one, and the calves...

It IS doable, you know. Not too much investment in gear, for example...

Mmm crepes! I wish we had food trucks around here... but it's probably good for me that we don't have them.

So do you drink your milk unpasteurized? I've thought about going that way since it's supposed to be healthier I guess, but I'm afraid to lol

We do buy some milk, in case we don't have enough for the cheese recipes. I prefer to drink the pasteurized stuff, but I have had the stuff straight from the cow once or twice.
