made more yogurt...........
This recipe was the "crockpot" variety with a gallon of milk and 3 cups of powdered milk and stated that it was foolproof and turned out just like Greek yogurt WITHOUT straining it.......not....it was thicker than the last recipe but it was NOT Greek style yogurt and there was the added expense of powdered milk. It tastes good but it's soupy and I don't like soupy so it will have to be strained. Maybe I should just make cheese and be done with it! LOL!
I also finished a book that I loved. It may not be for everyone because I like "outdoor" nature books and gentle...no violence or sex or horror so some may find my choice of books boring but I truly enjoyed it and had wonderful dreams when I went to sleep! I also like "older" books and maybe the 2 are connected because I think it's easier to find these "gentle" books in the older generation of books written. This book was published in 1967...the year I graduated from high school! I pick them up at the thrift store, garage sales and library sales much of the time. This book is about a young boy being raised by his Grandmother after his parents are killed and covers his entire youth growing up in the wilds of British Columbia. The author was born in New York but after marriage moved to the Northwest where she raised her family. She herself loves the outdoors and you can tell by her writing she is very familiar with it. The story was good and the characters were well developed......I wish there was a sequel!
I also crocheted another row on my Blackberry Salad blanket. This is a fun project for sure!
I'm going to be changing my blog and organizing RECIPES, BOOKS and REVIEWS and I'm going to be adding buttons for all the groups I've joined and a list of all my blogs that I enjoy. If you have any suggestions let me know and I may be asking some of you how you accomplished those things on your blog! LOL! Once I get that situated I will be having a drawing...I know, FINALLY! I was waiting to have 100 followers but I may not live that long! Ha! Ha! I think I have 97...close enough! So stay tuned for further developments! Thank you all for your comments and visits....I so appreciate you all!
