Care Package Frustration

Yesterday, a care package arrived. In it were a few innocuous items:
  • citric acid
  • rennet tablets
  • fennel seed
  • digital thermometer
With them, I plan to do fun, yummy things. The fennel seed will lead me to pepperoni and Italian sausage. The rennet tablets, citric acid, and digital thermometer will be used to make cheese ... first, probably mozzarella and ricotta.

What does that all spell? Pizza and lasagna. With good ingredients.

I'm drooling already.

Only one problem: I'm bed-ridden with a fever, nasty cough, and stuffy nose. Here I have the ingredients to help me try to make culinary heaven and I can barely walk ten feet without my body kicking off a world-record coughing fit.

Life is so cruel ...
