nine of june.

oh guys, my yogurt turned out goooood :)
at least, for the very first time ever making it, i was pleased.

i love thick yogurts (chobani greek yogurt is the best thing EVER. you will never go back) though, & this one (or two) just have a normal yogurt consistency. which i had expected, so it wasn't a letdown. they sat in my oven with the light on for about 9 hours to keep them snuggly warm :) as you can see. then we put them in the fridge overnight.

this is what it looked like this morning. you can't really see past the fruit. we added a bit of honey to it, too. since its plain. (i will post the recipe sooooon)


also, i have found exactly what my kitchen needs for life & happiness & for my sanity. it's tricky trying to fit everything into an apartment!

the one thing i DID get at walmart were these pint sized ball jars. oh my word. i bought them mostly so i'd have some smaller jars to put all of my dressings & mayo in - other than our massive jars ( you can see those in there too) but they stack PERFECTLY in our cabinets. i am completely in love. we have tons more cabinet space now. & i can see everything. 

every time i've walked past our kitchen in the past few hours i've just found myself wandering over to our cabinet & taking a peek in. such happiness for $6.50. if anyone else trys this & everything wont fit in a jar - designate a tippy top shelf in your cabinets to be your 'extra' cabinet. i have one up top. so glad you can't see it...
 now to take care of all of the other messes in there. mainly that upper shelf. sheesh.
