Heading North Across the Line…


I’m taking my sweet cheese spread in it’s mold wrapped in cheesecloth to Lepp Farm Market for a cooking demonstration tonight. I will take it out and present it ready to serve with Lovella’s Paska. I have my cross, X & B to press onto the cheese. This is a traditional Russian Easter Treat so it has the Cross to symbolize Christ’s crucifixion on Good Friday and the X and B are the first letters in Christ Arose or Christ is Risen in Russian, Христос Воскрес! We love to celebrate the Resurrection! The Mennonite Girls Can Cook are putting on the cooking demo tonight. It will be my first experience doing this. I hope I don’t drop anything…

I’ll be gone all day Thursday and into Friday. See you on the weekend!

Photobucket replaced all my photos with these blurred out versions and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. Your sweet cheese is beautiful! And I love the symbolism. I am sure you will do a great job at the cooking demo tonight. I know you will have much fun with all of the Mennonite Girls Can Cook crew! Success to you! I’m cheering for you from the east side!

  2. OMG that is so pretty looking. With this and your table settings you should open your own business I tell ya. You’d totally make Martha Stewart a thing of the past. Have fun my friend 🙂

  3. That sweet cheese is so pretty with the strawberries around it. I think we all can agree, Mennonite and otherwise, that the resurrection is our biggest celebration! I’m sure the demonstration will be fabulous.
    I’m curious…let me know if you stopped in Lynden for lunch…

  4. Looking forward to hearing about it. I’m sure by now you are all done and the class went well. Did the boarder patrols ask for a taste?

  5. The sweet cheese was a real hit at the cooking class last night and we were lucky to take the leftovers home to spread on the Paska Lovella had leftover after the demonstration. (thank you Ellen and Lovella – we share our largess with the boys in the office and they were quick to finish it all off) I highly recommend both recipes.

  6. That was such a treat…Ellen. I love it…I’ve boiled my eggs…and will make just one small portion. But oh, does that taste good.
    Thanks so much for making the effort of coming out. It was a blast.
