Yes, I created him. He is my husband who only ate individually wrapped string cheese from the frig and would ditch the wrappers on the carpet to his geek computer he created in the Man Cave.

Not today! Go back to the store, get 2 gallons of unpasteurized milk and after I make mozz I have to make ricotta from the whey? No whey, Jose. I already have to make dough, sauce, mushrooms, peppers. It takes long enough right now to make the dough as well, I’ll make mozzarella and ricotta when I’m ready and not under the gun to make dinner for you.
