I thought of a super witty title earlier today but I lost it. I can’t for the life of me remember it at all. As usual, I’ll blame it on the sleeplessness.
He took a three hour nap this morning and then a two hour nap this afternoon. That’s more sleep today then I’ve had in a night for ages.
Last night I made yogurt and it is freaking fabulous.
As you may recall I’ve been making yogurt for quite a few months now but unfortunately I botched my last batch because I forgot to turn the crock pot off and so to avoid that this time I just poured it into quart jars and left it out overnight. So much easier. Here’s my current process.
- 1/2 gallon milk
- 1/4 cup yogurt
Heat milk to anywhere between 155-180 degrees in a sauce pan. Once the milk has reached the right temp, take it off the heat and allow to cool to 115 degrees. At this point whisk in your yogurt. Then pour into quart jars, wrap in towels and let it set for at least six hours.
Then, if you want, you can put it in a cheese cloth and strain it to make a thick Greek style yogurt.
Avery and I had yogurt bowls for breakfast.
Yogurt, raisins, almonds and chia seeds.
Eli ate baked sweet potato sticks.
Because they are his favorite food in the world. I just cut up sweet potatoes, put them in a casserole pan, cover it and bake until these babies are so sweet everyone will be trying to steel them.
They’re really easy for him to pick up and extremely nutritious too. I try to keep Avery and myself away because we’d down a pan in seconds flat.
Wanna know something cute? Each morning Avery tells me where to put Eli, where to sit myself and then climbs up on his chair…he’s basically forces a sit down breakfast every day. I think it is special. And good for me.
Then again, he also spills his cheerios on the floor for Eli….which is less cool.
I wasn’t feeling super duper today and so I spent a lot of time sitting down and decided to be productive by crocheting a washcloth/hotpad.
I’ve already used it and totally love it for counters. It scrubs better than a wash cloth and has more surface area than a sponge.
So now I’m off to spend time with my family and pray for sleep tonight.
