Once upon a time, there was a girl who thought she could cook. That girl had taken a cooking class once about the finer points of cheese and how one would make cheese. So, the girl, thinking she could do such, ordered a cheese kit from Amazon.
Isn’t that how all great stories start?
When it came time to make the cheese, I followed the directions pretty easily.
It wasn’t hard at all-more like chemistry than cooking. I just added some things and stirred and such.
Everything went well until I got to the stretching phase of the cheese making. I am not sure what went wrong, but my cheese was not stretchy and smooth. It was more gloppy and awkward.
Still, it was yummy beyond words. When I cut the cheese (he he!), it was warm, salty, and chewy all in a good way. I loved it. It took a whole gallon of milk to make it, which is a sacrifice for us. Still, it was great.
I was proud of myself for making cheese even if it wasn’t perfect.
I just love happy endings….
