Sophia didn’t like it (picky child!) but Sean and Aidan did so I consider this near catastrophe a complete success! Sean and Aidan had some that I managed to scrape out (I had no idea that it would be so solid) over fruit salad that I made a couple of days ago.
I wanted to show you how my second batch of yogurt turned out. Making yogurt was a learning process, but good thing I learned quickly! The first batch was runny and lumpy. It turns out that I didn’t ferment it long enough (10 hours instead of 6) and I didn’t let it cool long enough in the machine.
It turned out thick and wonderful…just like a Greek yogurt that you would buy at the store.

When I was on Facebook the other day, I saw this great little recipe that I wanted to make. My boys are big fans of eggs and bacon. 6:30 AM comes awful early, though, and there isn’t enough time for me to make eggs in the morning. This is the picture that I saw on Facebook which looked awesome: (I baked them at 350* for 20 minutes, but honestly I could have used a little less time.)
OK, so I went about making mine – my chickens have finally started some sporadic laying so I have fresh eggs…
I put the bacon and then the egg in muffin pans that I sprayed with organic canola oil:
Homemade Egg cups
I only had 4 slices of bacon (and they were pre-cooked) so I made a muffin pan of just egg too.

So let’s see…my egg cups didn’t exactly look as good as the ones in the original picture.
Fit and Clean egg cups
Getting these out of the pans was easy enough, but they weren’t pretty, lol.

It kind of makes me laugh…the differences in egg cups, hahaha!
Bacon and egg cups
What I learned from making these egg cups: as much as I sprayed the pans, even though the pans were non-stick also, egg sticks. It was a pain to get the egg off. I think it would work better in paper muffin cups and then baking them in the oven. I haven’t tried it though but it seems like a better idea. I would only bake them for 15 minutes, too.
I’m going to sign off for now, I’m currently studying for my Sports Nutrition certification. I’m really looking forward to this! I think having this will complement my Personal Trainer Certification and maybe open up some additional employment doors.
