well my drawing of monsters got into the show about monsters. it is all turned in and finished. now it is stuffed animal time. i have two commissioned stuffed animals i want to finish before leaving for maryland. but today i am going strawberry picking first. we went a couple weeks ago and have quite a bit of strawberries frozen. the need for a chest freezer keeps getting closer. last time patrick and i made some biscuits and whipped cream for strawberry shortcakes that was truly one of the best things i have ever eaten. it included butter that we made ourselves and lard that a friend rendered herself. we have had such an abundance of dairy lately with miking goats and our milk share that i have been trying to use it all up before it goes bad. i made some yogurt two weeks ago that didn’t turn out that great. the culture was off and it was thin so i added some frozen strawberries and honey from our hive and we made frozen yogurt in the ice cream ball. it was quite tasty. i also made some cottage cheese this weekend that didn’t turn out quite right, but i am going to try it again. i think i cut the curds too large. but here are the monsters. for anyone in detroit the show opens this friday june 26th at the work:detroit gallery on woodward and martin luther king. the opening is from 6-9pm. sorry the photo is so bad, i am trying to save up money for a nice digital camera!!
