He made cheese! That's what he did. He hinted before Christmas, telling me about the cheese making kits he'd read about online. I found this site - http://www.makecheese.ca/ - ordered the mozzarella kit and the poutine making kit (which comes with an envelope of St Hubert's gravy mix, awesome!). The kids played with their new toys all afternoon (apparently Santa hit the jackpot this year) and we were left on our own to make cheese. We followed this up with homemade pizza and made the rest of the curds into ricotta that we'll use with pasta tonight. Talk about a perfect date!
