    But, I like making my own mayonnaise, which is 1000x better than the stuff you get out of a jar, so I can sort of see the appeal that way. I'm almost certainly not actually saving money making my own mayonnaise (I've never actually worked out the cost per oz.), but I like to do it. I'm not really into yogurt enough to worry about an improved taste, I have it for a late-night snack and a substitute for sweets when I get the occasional sweet-tooth, but I'm just not really married to the stuff.
    Yeah. For me its about seeing if i csn do it; does it taste better; and am i making something that is fresher and better for me. I enjoy cooking when I have the time.

    You think she has a lawn?

    i'm lost trying to figure out what brown neighbors have to do with making your own yogurt.
    I'm thinking that once, in 1953, a group of interesting people just happened to be in a coffee shop at the same time and a great discussion of issues, ideas, and the meaning of life occurred. Since then we have been waiting at Starbucks for Lawrence Ferlinghetti to say something heavy.

    There are plenty of things you can make cheaper at home. Now, this isn't true for people who live off of factory foods. You can't make a Black Forest cake for the same price as a box of ShurFine Chocolate Flavored Cake from the Dollar store. That's certainly true.

    On the other hand, it's very difficult to buy raw whole milk yogurt made with Palisade peaches and local honey at the Dollar Store.

    Apparently you have a lot of it.
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    Doesn't count the labor, repeatability, quality control testing or utilities costs. Or the costs of self-life testing. Or the costs or packaging.

    Nothing. Except nastiness to other people.
