It’s that time again. What would I be if I had to portray myself as food?  This week I choose kefir.  I am fascinated.  My new gluten-free regimen had increased my dairy intake, and my son has dairy sensitivities.  Enter milk kefir.  Kefir is simply milk that is fermented at room temperature with kefir grains for about 24 hours. It has many wonderful health benefits, a great flavor and is also usually tolerated well by the lactose intolerant.  I’ve been buying it commercially for $4 a quart, but now I’m going to make it myself.  Think of it as a self-portrait…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Woman Made Gallery (Chicago, IL) and juror Carla Williams for The Photographic Self.  Self-portraiture of women by women.  Don’t miss this chance…
