Mary, a cubic yard is 3 feet x 3 feet x 3 feet.  793 of them would fill your entire living room provided it was large enough to hold them.  LOL
Okay, fine, you're right, I miscalculated.  It was only 642 cubic yards.  :P
If I have to be a grownup, can I at least be telekinetic too?

That may be the correct answer.  That's an 8" X 7.5" mold.  LOL

At least I didn't have to lend you my living room to drain all the curd ...  ;D

Update, Placed a 1/4" thick slice of this on a large ribeye last night and blasted it at 650F.  Oozed over the top of the steak and was delicious!!!
