Mad Millie Italian Cheese Kit
Last Christmas, I searched for a gift for The Husband Who Wants Nothing, and discovered this: the Mad Millie Italian Cheese Kit. It was met with much fanfare, much excitement… and much gathering dust for half a year.
But finally — FINALLY — Mad Millie emerged from the box. And lo… behold… it was good.
As it turns out, cheese making takes a bit of patience, but isn’t really all that hard. It’s also a good activity for the family, one that you get to eat when you’re done.
After a little bit of awkwardness with the first few cheese balls, he found a groove and quickly became a world-champion cheese maker.
Cost: Kind of pricey when you factor in the kit, milk and labor.
