Let's cut right to it, shall we?

1. Milk, glorious milk! Our does are still milking their little hearts out - to the point that I had 3 gallons in the fridge this AM. So, today I am making Manchego.

2. Forgetful accounting. I forgot to write in a deposit, so I had an extra $40 in my account. Doesn't sound like much, but I was able to buy our turkey yesterday (24 pounder, for $0.98/pound) I still need to round up the side dishes, but that's no big deal.

3. The internet. See, SG asked for sweet potatoes for turkey-day. I've never seen them served any way except for sweet potato pie, so...I needed marshmallows. Only.....marshmallows aren't kosher. Not locally, anyway.....but, thanks to the internet, I was able to find kosher ones (made with Glatt Beef gelatin!); they're not cheap, but they're currently on the way here. Of course.....I have since found out that SG has never HAD sweet potato pie, so.....I guess I need to find something else to use the marshmallows in. :lol:

4. Field trips. We're gearing up for our next field trip - the Dead Sea Scrolls are in Ft. Worth, and we're going to go sometime this month. :bounce:

I've got more, but I'll save them - we need to get school started. And I need to cut the curds!

Ahh - our store sells kosher marshmallows - but they are kind of like coconut macroons - but I am not a marshmallow fan to begin with. Our sweet potatoes are either baked and served with cinnamon and sugar or out of a can in a sauce pan on the stove.
The DSS exhibit is sooo cool - we saw it when they were in San Diego - except back then I wasn't as educated as I am now and my husband didn't really care - you know you have the headphones on and listen to the information as you stroll through, but my husband was done in like 20 minutes, so I felt rushed. really you need HOURS to stroll through - try to get an early time slot.
And yours has a *dig* site - so cool. We didn't have that option. Enjoy!!

Health food stores have 'vegan' marshmallows. They're only slightly more than the real kind, and taste good! You might try that.

The scrolls are kewl. They came here a few years ago, and we HAD to get down to see them! Have fun!!!
