SB, one of the nicest things about being adopted is knowing that you were truly wanted because you were "chosen." And someone loved you enough to make sure you had very loving parents with a nice home who could give you all the things you deserved and she couldn't give you. Your daughter has three people who truly love her.

Love "TheKitchn"! Please let us know how your mozz turns out, OK? It's something I've thought about trying, but basically I'm too lazy to do.

I have had a wonderful day, most of it spent with mum

I got a few things at the supermarket this morning, then headed to Big W for a few bits and pieces

I have been driving around all day in lots of rain, it has been raining on and off all day, quite steady rain too

Took mum to do some grocery shopping as she had nothing in as she has been away for 3 weeks

Had a lovely tea and now relaxing with a cup of tea, soon to head into the lounge and watch some Masterchef

It turned out very well if I do say so myself! I used two tablets of the rennet and it thickened up nicely. My hands got tired of stretching it, so it was a little rough this morning, but it tastes great!

w00t! I've been wanting to make mozzarella for a few years, but I'm too lazy and I'm not sure where to find milk that isn't UHT pasteurized. I'm pretty sure I can get rennet at the health food store and maybe even citric acid, but a wine making store would certainly have the citric acid.
