Oh this will be fun.

I wish I could get into this enough to make hard cheese, but I seem to be stuck in making Greek Yogurt or Yogurt cheese.

This however is a GOD SEND -- and Hazelnut is the angel that sent it my way.

My husband would eat nothing but my berry smoothies - Healthy- yes
and mix in with that my flat bread -- again healthy

and gobs of peanut butter -- bad - very - very bad.

When people are not well - they do have a tendency to sometimes have cravings for things not good for them.

Now he uses the yogurt in place of the peanut butter, and I have a time keeping up with the yogurt making.

I questioned the first part of this article, which is about fat in cheese. Its a bit out-dated. I think today some would argue that full fat grass fed cheese is much healthier than the skim milk kind--since many people to day want lower carbs and do not care that much about low fat--as long as there is a balance of Omega 3s, 6s, and 9s.

Ohhhh noooo you know I can't resist the 3, 6, 9
on a street car line
The line got broke
and the monkey got choked
and they all went to heaven in a little rubber boat.

We have done this before. I have been on too many school buses in my life time.

Did the school kids on that bus know what 3-6-9 meant? Or didn't it mean Omega 3, ;middle chain and saturated fats then???

Our chant was 3-4-5. How to lay out a right triangle.

3, 6, 9
the goose drank wine
the monkey played the fiddle on the sweet potato vine
the vine broke, they all got choked,
they all went to heaven on a lil billy goat

Biigblueyes;
The little figure bowing --- gave me a chuckle. After the peanut butter deal --- Yes, I feel like I need to be bowed too. Made my day!

That was bout the cutest one yet!

Also; Thanks for a different words to the rhyme of 3,6,9 .
I think I have heard that one too -- but not as much as the other one, for some reason. Then neither one was sung as much as 99 bottles of beer.

Hazelnut: Triangle measurements - that would mean they actually learned something in school --- and they were on the way to a field trip and that would been just uncool.

I make my own yogurt already and we like it. There's a class I wanted to take really bad on soft cheeses. None of the dates and times it's being offered work for me. Here's what got me wanting to take the class, "This introduction will offer an opportunity to explore this lost art. We will create and sample several simple cheeses that can be cultivated at home. We will make cultured butter, feta cheese, mozzarella and several varieties of soft cheese. After learning to make kefir, we will transform this fermented milk beverage into soft spreadable cheese and a soft condiment that can be used in place of sour cream. You’ll also learn some cooking ideas for whey, a byproduct of cheese making. Students can build on this introduction to create many varieties of cheese at home. Includes: samples, cheese to take home, recipes and a cheese culture to get you started. Includes lunch $85 per person." Kefir might not go over well here. If I could "transform" it into a spreadable cheese that I could season.... I might be able to "slip" it in. Has anyone ever done anything like that?
