Yesterday was a good day. After hitting the local farmer's market where we bought fingerling potatoes, zucchini, candy onions, and pickling cukesand visited with some good friends, my daughters and I joined my bff at the Y for zumba, went to the farm to get raw milk, did a little cleaning, made a gallon of yogurt, went swimming for a while, had chicken on the grill with fresh green beans and fingerling potatoes creamed together in a lovely white sauce, had a family movie night and slept through the thunder storm. A full but rewarding day.
I've never done any experimenting with yogurt flavors preferring instead to add fruit to the finished product. This time I added 1/2 tsp of vanilla to one quart and the results were wonderful! Because it is SO warm here, I only allowed it to culture for about 8 hours insulated in a cooler to keep it warm. The texture was really nice and creamy. Can't wait to have some for breakfast!
Zumba is a Latin style dance/aerobics party! It's too much fun to be a class. If you have Zumba in your area, you should try it! Definitely a workout but loads of fun.
