My mom has requested yogurt for Pascha (Orthodox Easter, in one week). I'm excited to make it, but nervous because our apartment is still pretty cool. I'm going to try this method. Homemade Yogurt in Mason Jars - Food in Jars | Food in Jars We have a small cooler that should easily hold two quart jars, which is enough for a 1/2 gallon of milk turned to yogurt. $4-5 for the good milk at Whole Foods should be doable, even though the grocery budget is tight for the next couple of weeks. Actually, it should be okay since Hulky gets paid next Friday. Useful having overlapping pay schedules!
Maybe I'll make two batches that weekend. Good to have a back-up in case the first doesn't work out, plus I am totally willing to suffer through my lactose or casein intolerance for homemade yogurt. So friggin' tasty.
Hulky and I had a nice semi-outdoors day. I biked to Whole Foods for eggs in the morning, after ogling some activewear at TJ Maxx (really want some sports bras and kind of want some skimpy shorts for the hell of it). Later, we went out for a walk, wandering some paths near the soccer fields. We stopped to watch some kids play, Hulky pointed out how their coach is awful (easy to see, since the guy wasn't paying attention at all) and the kids really needed more instruction. He's thinking of looking for a team or league to join. I'm happy that he's feeling physically outgoing. Being active is really important to him. I got a little bit of a sunburn and it feels nice. Just enough to hurt a little if I rub my skin or my clothes are too abrasive. At the end of the walk, we got ice cream and then looked at some honeymoon registry websites online. I'm currently trying to find a website that would allow our guests to upload photos to share with us.
I'm still feeling pretty nervous about trying to bike to work. I am hoping I can make enough progress to try it later this week, but that depends on me practicing after work. I really don't want do the trip back and forth twice in one day (for work, in the car, and then to practice on the bike), but it must be done!
Tonight, I'm making chicken drumsticks (just salt & pepper, wish I'd picked up some Parmesan though) and oven fries with some broccoli. In case you're new here, yes, we pretty much live on broccoli. I need to try some new veggies this summer.
I can't wait for my parents' baby tomatoes to grow later this summer! I had some tasty meals with those babies.
