|Sunny and Warm!
Make that a sunny and warm Sunday! We went up to 102F this afternoon. That's when I decided to switch on the stand fan. Our humidity level was 20%, so the heat didn't feel too bad, plus there was a nice breeze, too.
I had a fairly quiet, relaxed day, today. I had a brunch of peanut butter and peach jam on toast because I didn't feel like making a cooked breakfast. Afterwards, I decided to make a batch of yogurt to use up the rest of the half a gallon of milk I had in the fridge. I brought the milk to a boil and simmered it for 20 minutes, stirring it constantly (it is my belief that doing this reduces some of the water content from the milk). Then, let it cool and added the last bit of yogurt left in the container of yogurt that M had given me, last month, as the starter. Then, I covered the dish and let it sit out on the stove top all afternoon. By evening, it had set and become yogurt:

I put it in the fridge after it had set to get cold. Later, after dinner (rice, chicken curry, cucumber salad, zucchini chutney), I tried some of the yogurt with palm treacle. It turned out well, with a silky texture. I told M he'll get to try it on Wednesday when he comes to tend to the garden. I plan to offer some to neighbor S, tomorrow.
