Great quote Jane Dolan! I must agree. Except for this one time…

From the archives~

My husband eats yogurt every day, so making home-made yogurt has been on my list for quite a while (almost as long as bean sprouts) but for some reason I am really intimidated by it. I read “Make the Bread, Buy the Butter” by Jennifer Reese (amazing book by the way, I even bought it which is something I rarely do), and she makes it seem so easy and so awesome, I felt I just had to give it a shot. I gathered up all the ingredients, the milk, some organic yogurt for the starter, got some frozen berries, but I just couldn’t take the next step. There was always some excuse not to make yogurt that day, maybe tomorrow. Day after day after day, I put it off.

A few days ago, I got a letter from Costco informing me that they were recalling the berries I had purchased for the yogurt due to a hepatitis outbreak. If I had not procrastinated, if I had made had made yogurt, my poor husband would have eaten the tainted berries, possibly contracting HepA and definitely getting an immune globulin shot. Finally, my procrastination pays off!

PS: I did finally make homemade yogurt and it was so easy and tastes wonderful. You too can learn to make it here.
