I never realized that becoming a mother I had actually applied for a customer service job that was 24/7!Â Itâ€™s an exhausting, rewarding job!Â I donâ€™t know about you, but having a small brood to care for is an amazing job! Â One that requires a great deal of on the job training.Â One of the best gifts of the job is being able to listen to other mothers and learn from their experiences and know-hows.
Yogurt. Who knew I would quickly learn about it. What’s in it, how it’s made, and different ways to eat it (drinkable, Greek, regular).
When my middle son was diagnosed with lactose intolerance last fall I began reading more ingredient listings then I ever thought I would. Along the way I’ve been choosing better options for the entire family not just lactose free but free of dyes, chemicals and words I cannot possibly pronounce. I tried my son on many different yogurts: soy, which was a huge fail; goat, not something he liked; and then many different lactose-free yogurts. Finally Iogo came out with a lactose-free version and then we settled into buying that however the flavour options are pretty limited. I began thinking back to when I was young every so often my mom would pull out her yogurt maker and make yogurt so the hunt was on for me to find a yogurt maker.
After many Internet searches, warranties, reviews and pricing out shipping and duty fees I found one at Bed Bath and Beyond. The one I bought was the Euro Cuisine – The Automatic Euro Cuisine. The yogurt maker has 7 – 6oz glass jars and has 3-year Warranty.
I used the recipe that was included but have changed it around to suit our own tastes. Basically you will need milk (we use 1% but any kind should work ) & some starter ( plain yogurt from the store that contains active cultures ). You will need to bring the milk up to 180â€™ for 1-2 minutes then cool back to 110â€™.
What NOT to say to a pregnant woman (or one with smaller children)…
After having my two babies only 17 months apart, I made a list of things that I PROMISE never to say to a pregnant momma, or any momma with small kids!
NOTE: All of these things were said to me at one point.
What not to say to a pregnant lady!
