100 Meter Diet Cooking Classes

This past weekend we invited some friends over for an in-depth demonstration on "living the 100 meter diet". The original plan was to have everyone over on Sunday for one big group visit but one of the couples were so eager to get started that they showed up (unexpectedly) on Saturday LOL!

After a few laughs about the date mix up we decided to customize a visit just for them. I was planning on making some mozzarella on Saturday anyway so we started with that first. While the culture was busy doing it's thing we made a batch of goat milk soap. Next we made a fresh batch of whole wheat / spelt flour pita bread. My mozzarella cheese didn't work out as I had expected but the goat milk soap and the pitas turned out perfectly. Two out of three isn't bad.

Sunday's plan was very similar to Saturday but instead of mozzarella I made ricotta using the whey from the mozzarella and we also made a fresh batch of cottage cheese. They both turned out well. And instead of goat milk soap we made fresh egg noodles. We made the pita bread recipe again and it was a hit for the second time. I also had some goat stew and goat meat balls available for those that wanted to give goat meat a try.

I appreciated all the extra hands in the kitchen and I'm now well stocked for food for the next week or so .... thanks gang!

All in all a great weekend!
