Does the internet ever convince you that you can do all kinds of things that reasonable people outsourced eons ago? Oh it doesn't? It's just me?
Well okay then.
Anyway, I was perusing Apartment Therapy the other day (Felt Food! Home Hacks! Hipster Shelter Style!) and I saw an article about making your own cheese. I saw that and thought, despite my miniscule kitchen and lack of damn near all the necessary tools, how awesome. I could totally do that.
Now friends . . . this attitude has gotten me into trouble before but I never ever learn. Matter of fact, I've created a bookmarks folder full of projects the internet convinced me I could do myself. It's been mostly awesome so far. For instance, I now manage my own haircare and save at least sixty bucks a month--thankyouverymuchyoutube.
But now . . . I'm getting ambitious. Did you know that you could make your own ginger ale at home? It's easy! Just don't use a glass bottle because it can explode. And don't let it ferment too long or you'll have made real get you pulled over and arrested alcohol . . . and you get my drift.
This could get messy. And dangerous. And maybe illegal? But definitely interesting. I have a long, long list of s@#) to try.
It'll be fun!
I haven't tried cheesemaking yet, but I already have the title of the post I'll be writing once I get around to it. Fun With Raw Milk!
