What a wonderful weekend it was! I had so much fun making cheese, attending some pioneer events (i can't wait for more) and celebrating a friends big 30th. If you missed Saturdays Pioneer days events don't worry, there are events ALL MONTH LONG ! Check out the pioneer days website to see whats in store.
Friday i attended a cheese making class at the union station fermentation which was awesome! We learned how to make mozzarella and ricotta from home ( it is quick and easy!) and we got to try and take home a ton of beehive cheese and local sheep cheese. For only $20 bucks this class is definitely worth it and i am so excited to say that i will be teaching a kombucha class soon so stay tuned! You can also purchase a hard or soft cheese kit for only $25 bucks or so that includes EVERYTHING you need (except milk) for 30 batches of cheese.
Saturday hunter and i biked over to oasis community garden for the rummage sale and pancake breakfast hosted by the junior league of Ogden. Hunter made a new friend and we heard some great tunes too. After, we biked downtown for the wild west shoot out, train rides, horse rides, stage coach rides, farmers market, petting zoo and more. I got old fashioned popping corn (that you have to take off the cob first) from Roberts family farms which was amazing! I also got some basil and pink lemonade and hunter donated her $1 allowance to big brother/big sister of Utah. For sweet treats we got one of vintage cupcakes "pink ladies" and a scoop of ice cream from Trudy's poppin' johnny ice cream.
After all the fun i was exhausted but i still had to go home and shower before baking some Mac n cheese with squash and peppers and 6 different cheeses for a friends 30th birthday. It was nice to relax after a busy day but i wasn't done yet! Midway between the party i got to duck out and attend the whoopie girl art unveiling at the imagine ballet theater. Seeing the rodeo queens and all the girls dressed at whoopie girls was fantastic, i love costumes. We enjoyed dinner and great conversation and they even had little cake pops that looked like cowgirl hats. After the meal imagine ballet dancers entertained us with a beautiful and fun ballet tribute to the whoopie girl.
On my way back to the party i got caught in a thunderstorm but it felt nice to not be hot and sweaty. I got to hang out some more and watch my daughter chase peoples dogs around and eat cake. Finally the night was over and i slept like i have never slept before. I hope everyone else had a great weekend too and if you didn't well, there's always next weekend.Until then get out there and make today the best day you can!
