After tracking down some Ricotta (I live in an uncivilized part of the world where people don’t seem to stock it!), I was hoping to take a lovely photo of it in the Sunday summer sun… then we had a major storm and had to turn all the lights on mid-afternoon!

A good excuse to make it again very soon – just for the photo of course! ;-)

(Another trip to the big supermarket later…)
