I'd smell it first and then decide. When I've had raw milk that's starting to go sour, I turn it into yogurt.
Hey there, I'm wondering what everyone's favorite oils are for making mayo. I've been messing around with it for a few months now and can't seem to get it quite right. Thanks!
Maalox! A doc gave me a recipie for a homemade cream a few years ago and I knew I was forgetting one of the ingredients. That was it. Thanks so much for reminding me! I've never used the Weleda diaper rash ointment before, I'll pick some up.

How do you deal with things that are "major" transgressions in your house? Like significant destruction of household goods, things that the child really knows that they aren't supposed to do?
