Cheese Maker

Mondays are for complaining, so why not whine with a new expression?

I like one of my husband's sayings, "Don't make a cheese out of it," which means, "Don't make a mountain out of a molehill, or "Don't make a big deal of it."

Well, this gadget is for making big deals, apparently. It's a cheese maker. You can make fromage blanc (white cheese for dessert) and your own yogurt. It comes with a strainer (faisselle).

All for just 24.90€.

Side note: I prefer my raspberry-flavored fromage blanc. But I won't make a cheese out of it if they've only got plain. I can add jelly myself.

In French, the expression is, "En faire tout un fromage."
