Yay! Yogurt Heaven!

Hi! Just wanted to report that the homemade yogurt was finally a success.

Took two tries and almost a week but WOW! it is really amazing and delicious.

This is the strained result plus the whey which is supposed to be good used in baking bread. [?]

Not sure if I'd make it again....pretty labor intensive. And takes up a LOT of space in the fridge....

And I have a feeling that the next stop on our culinary journey will be artisan pizza made on the BBQ grill. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/19/dining/19pizza.html

The arugula-gremolata version looks and sounds delicious.... 

I'm just glad that when I got the inspiration one time to learn to make sushi...my kids very firmly said, No!...and handed me a takeout menu.

have a great weekend!
