I went for a nice neighborhood run on Sunday. It made me feel like I'm getting my running groove back. I was a little worried it wasn't going to come back after the pregnancy.
Jonny is mad teething again, which makes for sleepless nights. Apparently, I didn't even realize I was hitting the 4am snooze until 5am....thanks Jonny. Since I have found my running groove, I am not complaining of my missed morning workout. I'll just have to get a quick run in at 3pm. Hopefully, I can dodge the rain that the sky looks to be promising at some point today.
We had a really nice family day yesterday...a picnic in the park, some pond fishing, and a walk along an Erie Canal trail. We finished with a stop for ice cream on the way home.
I made an attempt to make my own yogurt. It didn't come out too badly. It doesn't look as smooth as a store yogurt, but it does taste just as good as the store bought plain yogurt. I brought some with sliced strawberries for lunch today. I make mine with skim milk and I read that adding some dry milk to it, helps with consistency. I'm going to pick some up today and try it with the next batch I make. I don't sweeten mine but you can. I just do the plain because I like to use it to cut the mayo when I make salads, or as a sour cream, or even just sweeten the plain a little with sugar and vanilla to add as a topping to a fruit crumble. I have found so many amazing ways to use Greek yogurt that it really makes sense to start making my own. The store bought variety is expensive! I'm going to try making some yogurt cheese next.
