I got going early this morning. I had a tight schedule before Friday traffic and the "heat" really hit. I have no working air conditioner in my car and the forecast was for 80 today.
80 is fine for me, hard on the pup.
Today I tried Delights and Delectables Blueberry Buckwheat Yogurt Muffin Recipe. I haven't done a Buckwheat recipe in years. I really do love the flavor. These little guys were wonderful!
Once again I just did the make my own "yogurt" option. I have actually tried the So Delicious Greek Style Yogurt and really didn't like it. I have never had real Greek yogurt before and I do hear a lot of vegan's enjoying it so it is probably more my taste preference.
I added the Sam-ripe bananas (not brown at all) to the processor with the tofu mix and that was actually really good. I could have just eaten that.
Unfortunately I forgot to add the sugar to the banana-yogurt part (I used brown sugar). So I added it to the flour which is fine but the buckwheat tends to clump quickly with any moisture and I think the sugar would have been more even with the banana. Considering I almost forgot the sugar entirely at least it made it in at all.
Very good quick and easy recipe for a hot day!
I have a small elk family that is establishing routine in my yard right now. I always get a little jealous of my neighbor's large open field that the elk sometimes will graze for extended periods meanwhile only using my yard more for moving through.
Well this year is different - I appear to be a nursery. All the trees that have come down in the storm are finally serving a purpose.
What that tough guy is keeping tabs on is two little babies still with their spots. They are actually behind him playing in the fallen trees. They are so fun to watch. They actually play with each other like dogs, they get stuck in bushes, and somewhat melodramatically seem to throw themselves down when they are pooped.
Unfortunately he stood up whenever I tried to get a good angle on them. Not only did I not want anyone running and getting hurt, but frankly I didn't want to get charged.
So I waited.
Eventually the females returned and then everyone scooted across my yard. This was about the best photo I could get.
Have a great weekend.
