Day 15 One more day…!

Tonight I poached 2 chicken breast in my Demarle Fluted Square Mold. I sauteed some beautiful green beans with chopped sweet onions and garlic. Yum! I made a loaf of challah on my Silpat too. I didn’t give it enough time to rise so it wasn’t as fluffy as I like it to be. I divided the batch of dough into 2 parts. I made “challahettes” with the second part of dough, they are sitting in my Demarle Muffin Tray in the freezer right now. When I am ready to cook them, I’ll let them defrost/rise for a couple of hours and then bake them right in the muffin tray in a preheated oven.

I’m working on my grocery list for next week. I’m going to ride my bike the Farmer’s Market tomorrow (a day early, but the market only comes once a week!) I am working on a way to track bulk/staple items v.s. weekly eating items. Since I am baking more items (muffins, biscuits, cookies) I am going thru butter like crazy. I am also getting really low on raw milk, and since I spent over $60 on it just 2 weeks ago, I’m wondering how to justify buying more so soon. I did make 2 batches of cream cheese with it; I still have a lot of it left. But I really want to make my own yogurt. And kefir. And possibley butter. Time to start working My Costs page.



  1. Hey Carrie, I just made my own yogurt a couple of weeks ago for the first time. I wasn’t sure if it would be worth the effort instead of just buying it, but it was so easy and I actually thought it tasted better. And if you have raw milk available, then for sure, try it! I haven’t made kefir yet but that’s definitely on the list of things I want to try.

  2. Hmmm…bit too advanced for me, yet. Not even sure what kefir is!

  3. Kefir is kinda like fermented milk, only it’s much better than is sounds.It’s made by putting kefir grains into milk and letting it sit. It’s GREAT for smoothies, I use it to make pancakes too. It tastes a bit like liquidy sour cream. It’s perfect with berries and a little stevia. Kefir has lots of lactobacillius in it so it’s better for your tummy than that Activa crap.
