What I have and what’s up next

I made almond milk! I am excited about it, too. My mother-in-law had been talking about her cutting out dairy products, and she is coming over this weekend, so I wanted to try it out before she came over. Eric and I are also working on avoiding some dairy, but we are cheese fanatics, so it’s been rough going. We’ve been buying soy milk, but they put a lot of extra crap in that stuff; mom gave me the basic recipe, and I soaked my almonds last night.

The taste test was a success.

And then I found this blog: http://naturesnurtureblog.com/2012/06/08/homemade-almond-milk-almond-meal/

So now I am planning on making some almond meal/flour! I don’t have time to bake this stuff tonight, so I’ll throw it in the fridge for now and do it tomorrow, but my ultimate goal is to bake something using both the flour and the milk. I’m thinking cookies.

There is something so gratifying about making your own food.
