Wing Walking and Yogurt
I went to Milton Keynes end of the week to spend a couple of days at the shop, it was lovely to catch up with everyone but I couldn't wait to get back home again, I was bringing back eldest grandson and girlfriend who were coming to spend a few days, they had a lovely time and the sun shone for them, they got familiar with the animals, went for walks, collected mushrooms, drove around the field in the tractor, went to the beach had a fish and chip supper on the harbour wall, built a bonfire and toasted marshmallows and they did all that in 48 hours who says young people don't have energy.
On our back we stopped at Membury services, I like Membury services not for the facilities but for entertainment value, you can park up along side the little airfield and watch the goings on while you have your cuppa, on my last trip I watched them flying with those parachutes that had an engine I don't know what they are called, an earlier trip I watch some me walking there ferrets, this time I had my camera to hand and we were entertained with Wing Walking I think that's what it is called
So if you are ever heading down the M4 pop into to Membury services westbound.
Today started off damp but the sun soon came out so it was beds stripped chores done I headed into town to fetch some shopping bought some plain natural yogurt to get some yogurt started,
Here's how I did mine
warm up 1 pint of milk to 110f stir in a heaped spoon of milk powder
allow the temperature to drop to 100f
add 1 desert spoon of sugar and 2 desert spoons of natural yogurt
give it a light whisk to make sure the natural yogurt is mixed through
then pour into a container that is submerged in hot water I use my easi yo container
The easi yo container is insulated so it will keep the heat in water that helps the yogurt to set.
You could pour your liquid yogurt into a wide mouth thermos flask and leave it for 7-8 hours to set.
I will update tomorrow how the yogurt has worked out.
I picked another big bowl of blueberries today
these are a late season blueberry, my plan is to make some sauce to go with the yogurt so that will be on tomorrows list as well.
Tune into tomorrow for a continuation.
