Baking Day and Colds
A few weeks back when I last trekked over to Costco I bought a 2kg bucket of Greek yoghurt. I enjoy it with a little drizzle of maple syrup for breakfast some mornings, when I'm bored of egg on toast and it was the same price as a 1kg tub. Apparently I don't enjoy it quite as much as the quantity required of me by the use-by date. Two kilos is a lot of yoghurt!
So what to do with about 1/2 a kilo of yoghurt that has officially gone past its use-by? My answer is CAKE! One gluten free, one regular and both containing yoghurt so that nothing was wasted. The timing was doubly perfect as we're off on a family picnic tomorrow. Now my mission is to convince everyone they don't need icing. Dh and the girls have all got/had colds this week. Sugar always makes the symptoms worse so I have a bit of a job on my hands!
And on the subject of colds, I have decided that even though there are more cold/flu germs in our house right now than could sink a ship I will be not be getting sick. I begin teaching rounds again on Monday and have to make days up if I take time off. I'm not doing it....it's decided. Just to make sure I'm taking ease-a-cold tablets to get ahead of any germs. And eating chicken soup. And praying lots because God is the one who insisted I do this degree. So far I'm fine.
