Sometimes in the midst of chaos, I find it therapeutic to make stuff. Since I got into a serious yogurt making kick over winter break, I’ve been making yogurt at least weekly. I love having a big jar of thick, creamy whole milk yogurt in the fridge. The kiddos just love yogurt with fruit and muesli and granola and jam—you name it. For Monday’s lunch I packed a tin of yogurt and fruit salad with honey granola sprinkled on top. Yum!
On Monday I was able to work from home, so I made a loaf of whole wheat maple oat bread using the ridiculously easy no knead technique from Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I made enough dough for two loaves and at this very minute, my house is filled with the glorious aroma of fresh baked bread. On a Wednesday. At 9:30 at night. You can make bread at random times like that when you dough on hand. Craziness.
