Ricotta for Breakfast

Oh boy. How do I even begin to tell you this story. Picture this: it’s a beautiful Saturday morning, the sun is shining and I’ve apparently woken up very early (8 a.m. early.) As I sit in my bed debating what to have for breakfast, I get this wonderful idea to make my own ricotta cheese. It shouldn’t be too hard, I think to myself. All you really need is milk and vinegar or lemon juice. (All three of which I own.) I wish someone had stopped me right then and there. It was hard. In fact, I even burned the first batch and now have to figure out how to remove a thick layer of burnt milk from my pan. Second batch wasn’t so successful either, but I won’t bore you with the details. I ended up giving up, throwing everything out, and going to buy some ricotta from Target. FYI, it was now like 10 a.m. and I was beyond starving.
