More woods + yogurt= happy day :) or "1,320 feet of pure heaven, Baby!"

I had to edit this post to include Josh's quote. When he said it, I said, "That's the perfect title for today's blog!"

Last night Josh discovered a discrepancy in the dimensions of the land. The dimensions listed did not equal the acreage. He visited the township office and discovered that the acreage is correct and the land goes back 320 more feet into the woods than we originally thought. We first thought the property ended just after the woods starts.

He also drove by today and found that the sellers appear to be working on clearing their belongings from the pole barn and moving the other items they have stored on the land.

Off the topic of the property, I learned how to make yogurt! It's so easy and yummy and less expensive than store bought! Imagine all the possibilities . . . raspberry, vanilla, honey with nuts, . . . mmmm!

Here's how I made it:

Warm 1 qt of milk to near boiling and stir in 1/8 C of powdered milk. Then let it cool to lukewarm. Then add 1 tablespoon of plain, store bought yogurt and 1 tablespoon of flavored jello (I used raspberry). Pour into a sterilized jar or other container (non-metal). I used a canning jar. Let sit undisturbed in a warm place until thickened.

That's the basics. You can leave out the jello for plain yogurt and you can strain it through cheese cloth or add plain gelatin if you like it thicker. Mine sat overnight without setting up--it wasn't warm enough in the house. This morning I put the jar in a bowl of very warm water and when I got home from work it was done!
