Friday Five [8.26.16]

Happy Friday!!!  Woohoo!  We've got big things going on this weekend (as in I'm going to need a weekend to recover from the weekend) so let's just get right down to it.

So....the quote of the week, without a doubt....while wearing Lilly Pulitzer palazzo pants, a solid tee, and a statement necklace one of my darlings said, "Mrs. Fitch, are you wearing that necklace to make your pajamas look fancier???"  #fromthemouthsofbabes

Mesquite Bean Coffee

While visiting Bestie MHDRL in Big Bend, Texas we embraced the notion of "while in Texas" wholeheartedly and whipped up some mesquite bean coffee.  She had already harvested the mesquite beans before I arrived, so all we had to do was roast and brew.  It was quite yummy and such a unique treat -- definitely not something we find in Hoosierland!

DIY Greek Yogurt

Growing up my dad and grandmother made yogurt all the time.  I was completely intrigued that we went to bed with a pot of milk and woke to a pot of yogurt.  This morning I was pretty tickled to find my own pot of milk had turned to yogurt was Hubby.  If I'm being honest, he was pretty doubtful about the whole thing.

When a friend from school mentioned that he uses a starter that is over 1,000 years old and does it in the crock pot I knew I'd have to try it for myself.  Usually I use a thermometer, but this time I just went with the timing he suggested instead.  This will definitely become part of the Sunday routine at our happy little hive.
