yesterday was busy as i made a fresh cheese called tvorog started from the previous day [detailed instructions with pictures taken from Yulinka Cooks (thanks yulinka!)]. this is also loosely translated as farmer's cheese and is more of the consistency of a yogourt/cottage cheese. the following pictures are of my results which yield approximately 3 cups of tvorog:
after all this excitement, i was hungry and decided to make the easiest and quickest pizza ever, margherita style [i added thinly sliced red onions]. all that is needed for the crust is thin-style fresh store-bought pita. the oven is set to the grill setting and the pita is topped with tomato sauce [i used HUNTS®] — don't forget to season it with whatever spices you prefer, and slices of good mozzarella. it goes in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden.....oh so good!
try it, you won't be disappointed!
what has this world come to? first, Marc Lepine at l'Universite de Montreal, then Valery Fabrikant at Concordia University, now this.
as of 2:45 pm EST — downtown westend core has been closed; unconfirmed reports 4 dead (2 gunmen: one killed by police, other committed suicide) and 16 injured. see link "HORRIFYING news" above. must be a big news story outside of here (understandably), it has made it onto yahoo news.
as of 3:40 pm EST — news reports are all differing. one local radio station is saying no deaths are confirmed. yet the television is saying otherwise. while this started sometime just around 1 pm, students are still being evacuated slowly. some reports say the gunmen were in military fatigues and the incident started in the shopping mall which links to the cegep. witness were saying they were running into stores to take cover. also horrifying is the fact that there is a daycare for the cegep located next to the main entrance.
as of 4:15 pm EST — Montreal police confirm death of one person (the gunman); reports are now that there are no deaths except him but others are injured. apparently, he was the lone gunman, others were not involved. confirmation later, i guess.
