Cheesemaking

Name something that typically smells foul, is made from decayed food and that almost everyone alive, even small children, love.

It is cheese, of course.

I did some research a while back on how to make my own, since it seemed absurd to me how much cheese costs.

I got as far as learning that it takes 11 gallons of milk to make a pound of cheese before I realized one reason why the stuff is so pricey.

Check out this article by another brave soul who went a lot further than I did: www.breadandmoney.com/docs/cheese2005.html

Yes, Ela, we celebrate in all the traditional American ways and we finally bought a pre-lit tree this year.

I do celebrate christmas. I have most of my family here with me and we start December 24th!
This year I am going places, so I do not have to cook (lucky me:)
